Day 10 of the Picture Dialogues

Saturday, jour de marché

















Every type of olive and the traditional French take on gateaux de rois, which comes with a crown for the lucky person who finds the ceramic toy in their piece of cake.














Writer's breakfast at the market with a pain de raisin and grand cafe creme at the cafe Au Rosier d'Autan on the square in Revel.








My friend D seems to always get the prize in the cake. He showed me a small wooden box he has with a whole collection of little ceramic saints, bears, fairies and such that he has gotten over the years. But that is OK with M and I. Boys will be boys.



Bon Weekend!

as 'le roi'I feel able to comment . . those 'china toys' are known as 'fairings' in the UK but they would still break your teeth if you were not careful eating, ;Tis true I have a collection of them 'oys and their toys' maybe or just to see how many kilos I have consumed in France eating les galettes!!
