I usually hate coming up with titles for these posts but this one was a simple case of every-picture-tells-a-story.

Mostly, but not entirely, about cooking, eating, drinking, markets, festivals, exploring and glorying in life in general in this lesser-known part of France (and in other parts of the planet).
|Spotted outside a restaurant in Foix. I think, I think that "gourmand" was mis-translated as "greedy".|
But, so help me, I still can't work out what a "muffe" is. Feel free to contribute ideas in your comments. Oh, and I should point out that "gizzards"--usually from a duck, and confited--are really tasty. (Finally, "day dessert" is probably "dessert du jour")
|The tenuous link between this and the first shot is that both feature duck. These were magrets that we bought at Lavelanet market and put on the barbecue that evening. Rosy and succulent, they're better than the best steak. Rounding out the plate: new potatoes with parsley, and salad elements. Increasingly lazy, I arrange radishes, lettuce leaves, sliced green onion etc on a large platter and let everyone assemble their own.|
