This makes a very light lunch, healthy and vegetarian. I like to try new recipes, since I cook basically everyday. The days I'm working, I have home cooked meal with me. We don't do often restaurants, because
in France you pay easily 15€/person for lunch at the restaurant and 25-30€/person in a cheaper restaurant for dinner. Without the drinks, of course! So the time we go out for a restaurant, it's a special occasion with friends.
Do you eat often in the restaurants? Or do you prefer to cook by yourself?
