Minnesotan in Southern France

Cooking term time again:

Provençale – denoting a dish cooked in a sauce made with tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil. Also related as coming from the French region of Provence – a geographical region and historical province of southeastern France, which extends from the left bank of the lower Rhône River on the west to the Italian border on the east, and is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea on the south.

I take a perverse pleasure in seeing a “high-class” word like Provençale paired with a solidly midwestern word Supper. Oh, yeah, it was tasty too!

Peppers, beans and tomatoes.
