Denise, at least the panties were clean ones! LOL -Kate

So nice to finally meet the heroine of the panty story; thank you for a good giggle today!! And I can't wait to try both recipes, especially the roast garlic in broth one. I can't think of anything better on a fall evening than wonderful roasted garlic and a crusty baguette!

Well Denise you won me over as soon as I saw the roasted garlic! That hummus salad looks wonderful too! I had never heard of zaatar before - it seems like a very useful spice, for salads, stews... It's so very nice to meet you and thanks for sharing your story!! I'm guessing the lovely first picture of you two is in a bar in Cassis?

Oh my goodness, this was a great respite in my afternoon! What a fun person you are! I can't wait to try both recipes, they both look incredible! Thanks for sharing!

The hummus looks amazing! That photo is print worthy. Yum!

Nice to meet you Denise aka the panty lady. What is your favorite pastime in France? Do you frequent the brocantes?

Diogenes, nice to hear from you as I've seen your name many times before in comments and YES the first photo was taken in a restaurant in Cassis.

Ann of Avondale, my favorite pastime in France is spending time with friends, usually with food and often walking streets of Cassis, Aix, Marseille or Cotignac. I did frequent the brocantes and bought many things for our little apartment that we have sold this year. I will miss our three months a year spent in Provence...

What delicious recipes!!! Beautiful photos too. I was introduced to Zatar by my son-in-law, first generation Palestinian-American. Delicious with anything Middle Eastern. I mix it with Greek yogurt. I then discovered sumac. A lemony flavored dried spice. Nice to expand culinary cultures.

Merci Denise!( aka PL)
The loaded hummus recipe is exactly what my tastebuds were searching for in planning a mezze meal for family (the ones not in lockdown in Melbourne)this weekend.The garlic recipe looks great, too.

Lovely to meet you Denise. The hummus recipe is a sure winner. I loved the story before, and I love it now. Contignac is a truly gorgeous town. Hopefully next year we can all return to our favourite part of the world.

Thanks for a fabulous idea Corey

My partner makes the Hummus in our house every now and then so, I’ll get him to do it following your recipe next time!
Thanks for sharing it! 😊
PS: I will have a look at your Facebook profile to see if I can find more inspiration to have him cook something different, therefore, I may steal some recipe up for sharing if any! Hope you don’t mind! Tks in advance 😂🤣😂

Denise I enjoyed your posting so much.
A giggle and great recipes.
Thank you

That hummus plate looks amazing! Oh, I do remember the story of the panty lady. This just makes me smile remembering. Thanks for putting a face with the story.
