~My Favorite French Garden Books and Simple & Sweet Fridays #233~

I wanted to share with you this week,
 two of my favorite 
~French Garden Books~
These books have inspired me to take photographs
of our garden and cook recipes using our garden's produce.
Kitchen Gardens of France
Louisa Jones
Here are some photos from the book.

I love each garden.
Fresh Garden Cooking in the French Style
Georgeanne Brennan
Foreword by Alice Waters
This book has inspiring garden photos and delicious recipes!

I love reading these books and dreaming of the 
beautiful gardens of France!
You can find both books on Amazon!
~Our Potager Garden Stew~
We made a quick lunch from our garden vegetables;
zucchini, tomatoes, spinach and onion.
We added ground beef and parmesan cheese.
~Garden to Table~
