Nice, France unpacked

Two dogs and a dozen baguettes

“MISTER, I know you can smell these freshly baked baguettes but these are not for you!”

We are very lucky dog parents to a dynamic duo who don’t turn into troublemakers (well, not always) as soon as no one is looking. But with a keen sense of smell and Mister B’s taste for bread, I bet it wasn’t easy having a warm bag of fragrant baguettes securely tucked in and sitting in the back with them. Poor guy, just look at his face!

Potato chips from France
Note the Mackie’s Mature Cheddar & Onion and Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper!

If I were to come up with a Top 10 list of goodies to bring back from France, potato chips would be at #1, cheese #2, wine #3, chocolate, cookies, baking ingredients, seasonal produce, soap bars, kitchenware (♥ Emile Henry) and baguettes for the rest and in no particular order. If anyone here in Italy knows of where to find Mackie’s line of products, ice cream included, please share in the comments!

Groceries from Auchan

L-R: McVitie’s Hob’Nobs, 1 kilo-size icing sugar (Italy sells tiny bags), bottle of vanilla extract (difficult to find anything larger than teeny vials over here), wine, Scott’s porage oats.
Front: pâtisson/scallop squash, vanilla beans, thai oiseau peppers, turkish figs, McVitie’s Sablés Anglais, potimarron/red kuri squash. All purchased at Auchan – La Trinite – in Nice.
