+zoltig Posted July 7, 2009 Share Posted July 7, 2009 This just in ... Posted this image because of the cheesy hides that are showing up along the fifty-two near Santee. It's a photo of Sandy of SD Rowdies purchasing cheese in Vaison-la-Romain, Provence. In the near foreground of the image is a glass container filled with edible green stuff. In France nothing edible goes to waste. Question is: What is the green stuff and what is it called? I'm guessing pureed frogs... or snails... or both... But I'm waiting on an expert's (my mom's) opinion... Is it Pesto. The wife who is pure Italian said it's a mixture of pine nuts and garlic with Olive oil and other herbes that they spread on bread. But then again she is Italian and not French Not pesto but that's very close ... not pine nuts, not frogs, and not snails. Spread on bread? ... quite right, spread on slices of a baguette to be precise. Ain't Geocaching educational? All due to the fifty-two mind you. Gorganzola Nope, Gargonzola is a cheese made from the milk of exhausted bovines. Really. Well, you know, except in America where all cheese is produced from bovine milk and then chemically doctored to emulate the appearance and taste of classical cheeses. Of course that begs the question, what milks are used to produce the classical cheeses? But we digress ... back to the bottle of green stuff if you please. Stay with me on this, in the end it has a connection with Geocaching in Provence. Really. Hmmm...a connection to Geocaching...what could it be...? Ohhhh, bien sûr! Naturellement! Frog balls! LLOT needs to clean my computer screen. Quote Link to comment
