Erin's self-sufficiency blog

Dedicated to sharing my efforts in radical homemaking, self-sufficiency, simplicity, and general craftiness on a very, very small budget.

petite joie

Not a recipe, but I thought that I would share the following from Peter Mayle's French Lessons.

He is recounting a chant by a choir in a Catholic church during the truffle-gathering season in Provence:

Bon Saint Antione, donne-nous
Des truffed en abondance
Que leur odeur et leur bon gout
Fassent aimer la Provence.

(Good St. Anthony, give us an abundance of truffles that their fragrance and their good taste will make them loved in Provence.)

Sounds better than praying for the forgiveness of sins!
