It’s Friday and I’m bagged. Week 29. Huile d’OlivePosted: 10/09/2010
Grab a coffee or tea and join us each Friday, to learn how these Soak worthy bags came to be. Are you bagged? Send us your favorite bag. If we feature it here, we’ll send you a Soak gift pack, in a pretty bag, of course!
Today’s bag is compliments of Paul and Marianne, a newlywed couple who spent their romantic honeymoon in France. On their first day exploring Aix-en-Provence, they came across a wonderful open air market.
Surrounded by home-made tapenade, artisan breads, fresh spices and beautiful flowers, they were reminded of Chris (from the Soak office) and decided to pick up this wonderful bag for her.
I’m not exactly sure why they were thinking of Chris on their honeymoon, perhaps it is her love of farmer’s markets and her adamancy that most fruits and vegetables should only be bought while in season. Or maybe there is just something about olive oil that brings them fond memories of Chris. Either way, she scored a great new bag for her trips to the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto.
If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Provence, be sure to visit the wonderful markets and enjoy a baguette and some black olive tapenade for us. We’ve been told that you won’t be disappointed.
