yep, that's about it

The weekend pretty much went down like this:

Friday night I wanted pizza... and to any of you who read me way back when, you're probably saying to yourself; no silly, pizza night in Le Petit Village is Tuesday night, everyone knows that. But what I haven't told you, is our old pizza man gave up the pizza business to work in construction and we got a new pizza man, and he comes to Le Petit Village Friday nights, a much more pizza friendly night if you ask me.

(And if you want to know how the old pizza guy is getting on in construciton, the answer is not well... he was using some sort of machine and somehow lost control of the thing and ended up slashing his face. Like bad. Like he's lucky to have eyes and a face, and well even a head left for that matter. But what he does have now is one crazy scar running diagonally across his face. Guess he should have stuck with the pizza)

So on Friday while I was pondering what to make for dinner, The Husband suggested we have a movie night, so pizza just seemed like the obvious choice, right? But lo and behold... no freaking pizza van. Because this is France and why would there possibly be something there that's supposed to be there... no no no, that would be too conveniant.

F R U S T R A T I O N

And because we clearly don't eat enough cheese here, Saturday night was a Fondue at The Croupier's house; both plain and mushroom. Variety is the spice of life you know.

On Sunday I desperately wanted a lazy, cozy, potter about the house kind of day (my favorite type if you want to know), but alas it wasn't in the cards. As I chopped bok choy for the Singapore Chicken Fried Rice lunch I was making, The Husband was on the phone with Papa's Wife. She was practically begging us to come over for lunch. You see, it's been hunting season for the last few months here which means that Papa had pretty much been MIA leaving one, very lonely, Papa's Wife. So the bok choy over here was put aside for asparagus risotto over there. It was pretty tasty though, and bonus... I managed to stuff myself with leftover Christmas sweets... Ferrero Rochers and Mon Chéris (I probably shouldn't refer to this as a bonus).

But since I was still all about being lazy and cozy, I put my jammies on for Sunday night at The Honey House where we were watching Clermont vs. Toulon rugby (they were nice jammies by the way). While The Husband and me are Clermont fans, pretty much everyone down here supports Toulon, but Clermont won anyway which meant that I got to gloat and do victory dances galore.

And let me tell you something, 
gloating victory dances in jammies, 
are ever so much sweeter.

  1. He should go back to pizza! I would DIG IT if my pizza man had a scar. Like mafioso stylin'. %100 Sicily, biatches. Yes - tell him!

  2. however, not very italiano gangsta putting the percent before the digits... or is it.... i got excited.

    Um, something in the universe is screaming at me telling you to get a goddamn piza van started!! (or a taco truck?)

  3. Oh poor Former Pizza Man - he must be wretched! I hope he'll be okay soon. Glad your team won! xxx

  4. I thought Friday night was the international night of pizza everywhere! I'm glad that le petit village is finally on board, though it seems it is still keeping its french quirks. We have a Thursday night samosa van that pulls the same hijinks every once in awhile...

    What pizza man also has now is a great story behind a great scar...once he makes up said story about how he saved le petit village from masked marauders!

  6. Sunday night is pizza night around Sablet or at least that is when the pizza van comes around. I would have preferred to have been invited over the fondue, great any night of the week.

  7. I love pizza!!! Yum :) Friday night is our pizza night as well. And omg @ the slashing of the old pizza man. How sad! I'm glad that he got super lucky and didn't cause any significant damage.

  8. We have pizza once a week...but mostly I make it. If you can get your hands on the ingredients it's totally worth it. Then you don't need pizza vans or construction workers! But then again, sometimes having someone else make your dinner is totally worth it! : )

  9. Pizza on Friday makes SO much more sense. When he's there of course. France is nothing if not unreliable.

    So... where's the YouTube of the jammie victory dance?

  10. We do pizza once a week and I make it. Once I figured out how to make the crust, I keep all the ingredients on hand to make it. Mmmmmm.

  11. Most things are far more glorious when done in the loveliness and comfort of jammies!

  12. There was a regular pizza van near the place I lived/worked in France. Those pizzas spoiled me for any I've had since.

  13. You made your weekend sound extremely desirable, even without pizza.

  14. I'd like to try some French-style pizza

  15. Poor pizza guy! Not to mention, for being such a small place, Le Petit sure has a lot of interesting stories. lol

  16. I love that you have a Pizza night. I'm assuming that if it wasn't for you that term would not exist in your little village. I have yet to find pizza I like here (thinking of taking the cue from the girl above that makes her dough?) but Pizza Night was every wednesday growing up and I'm ready to bring back the tradition! You've inspired me. x Ps the patter around the house days are the best.

  17. Oh I love pizza night! We try to do it every couple of weeks. I really like making my own but we go out for it too sometimes.

  18. In the middle of "lounging around in sweats, drinking (studying) wine" night right now ... except it looks like wine region notes have exploded all over my living room. If it wasn't for this leftover lasagna, yeah, pizza dude would be on his way here now with a College Veg to pair with this Torraine-Meslands red. Cheese on, good woman, cheese on.

  19. mmm.... I could really eat a pizza now after all this pizza night talk!
