Monday walk…but not too far

I had a very busy weekend, so I’m not inclined to do much walking today, so let’s just take a quick walk to a lovely butcher shop in Luxeuil-les-bains, Boucherie Giromagny. It doesn’t take many steps to get around the shop, but you’ll need to stop and take it all in anyway. Let’s get started!

I wish I could have some sort of scratch-and-sniff button for this post, but you’ll just have to imagine how wonderful it smelled. The hams hanging on the back wall are indigenous to this area. The meat here isn’t factory farm meat, but from the area and, I imagine, mostly or all organic.

We’re in France, so should we get a bottle of wine? There are all other sorts of goodies as well. Step a bit closer and look.

Fruit and veggies, pasta, cherries, sauces, and pumpkins. It was a good year for pumpkins and squash of all sorts.

We bought many things for lunch, including some wonderful olives. On Sundays, you can get a rotisserie chicken…and we did that, too.

Like most of the places we go in Luxeuil, it’s just a short walk to the bakery and the coffee shop, Brûlerie Doillon. Although they have an extensive selection of tea, I’m having a cafè creme. I’ll just add however much foamy cream I want. What will you have?

    I’ll have what my family calls “a Grandpa plate.” Ask Grandpa what he wanted, and he’d say, “A little of everything.” Mmmmmmm, that coffee looks gooooood!

  6. I love the food in France. It’s so fresh and locally grown and tastes so so good!

    Oh yum! I can’t smell it no matter how I try, but I can imagine 😀

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
