She returned bearing gifts- again! There yummy chocolates flavored with coffee liqueur.
Beautiful and really, really good.
She spoils us.
The BFF was not supposed to give me a birthday gift since she took me to see Trace Adkins and Toby Keith in concert. But she did. She found a perfect gift-- a new cookbook with so many amazing recipes and photographs.
August 2008, while still on sabbatical. Just going back and reading the entry and looking at the photo of pink flamingos I took from the restaurant brings back so many lovely memories.
A coincidence? The BFF had no idea who Néné is or that his photo is in the book. But I don't really believe in coincidences. I think it was meant as a reminder that I really was there... almost exactly two years ago. She gave me the book on August 2, 2010 and this photo was taken on August 1, 2008.
Now I have to be brave and prepare one of the recipes. Maybe la soupe au pistou... vegetable soup made with summer vegetables served with pesto.
Bon appétit, mes amies! Vous êtes vraiment généreuses. You are so generous.
