This has been a rainy weekend and cool so after doing some running yesterday we stay put today. We took the time to pinpoint last minute planning for our summer vacation next month in Germany and Luxembourg.
For now, this is Pluvigner in the Morbihan dept 56 yes!!! Small town in the country a new change and it has been great. Looking forward to towns like this.
We did our usual shopping in Vannes, got some stuff for the house, always something to do around the house, and then we came back. I was ask to eat and I say wait until we get home.
Then, I was coming up this créperie resto that is on my way home ,always look at it, always make a point to visit but as usual when you have so much to see around you, you just keep going. Well not this time.
I made up my mind as I was coming on the next to last traffic circle before arriving home to stop by and have lunch. I pull over and immediately the friendly folks came out to greet us. We had a terrace table and went on.
the place is like a small Breton longére , a long house good to keep the family on one side and the farm animals on the other. this one has a veranda of stone with a nice terrace and nice garden. In the back , you have additional parking which is where we parked. Coming around to the front you see a big wood firing oven and come up around to the front door and terrace.
The young lady came to serve us and then another and then the owner Jean-Noêl (because was born on Christmas day), and it turns out he is a native of the same town as my wife !!! Meaux in Seine et Marne of the brie cheese fame, mustard of Meaux and now close to the action of Disneyland Paris as well as the new museum on WWI! yes! and not only that but he had lived in Auvergne ,near where my father in law is from lol!! Welcome to the family ::)
We started out talking a lot find out everything and before starting to order made reservation for the event of the resot créperie Le Vorlen, Rost Er Forn, Breton for roasted pig in oven , a specialty only done on the first and third Sunday of each month by reservation. We are on for August 2nd! complete dinner of the pig 300grms, entrée, dessert, 1/4 wine for 18€ nice. See the picture on the process of the cooking lol!
Then we had our usual Breton beers, Duchesse Anne, Morgane, Blanche Hermione, and even a Leffe Belgian beer. We continue with the beers and had our galette noir montagnarde with reblochon cheese and potatoes, goat cheese and 3 cheeses types, expresso coffees and more beers for a total of 17€ per person. Nice place to had lunch or dinner and right in town.On the traffic circle at the entrance to Pluvigner on the road D768.
After that it was time to head home and finish our day. We had all the tools we need to attack the garden and windows once the rain stops next week,and fully well fed by the friendly Le Vorlen. Until we can meet around the woods, have a great end of Sunday y’all. Cheers
