Just checking in as now back from France!

Followed your ideas, and bought

Local salami
Bleu d'auverge cheese
Onion tart
Tomato salad
Pate with hazelnuts

All went swimmingly we broke the bed -true story

Buy lovely fresh nectarines, some mozzarella, Parma ham and some salad leaves. Arrange artfully on a plate, with a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and mint. Eat with vast amounts of baguette and cold white wine.
Super easy, really delicious.

Agreed with above, find the markets when there and buy some lovely bits to take home, amazing fresh fruit and veg, a rotisserie chicken is a good bet, gorgeous baguette bought at the bakery that day with yummy cheeses and cold meats. I can't imagine you'll want to do much proper cooking for just a few days' holiday, and it'll be very warm, so you may just fancy salads and picky bits.

Tin of duck confit and some frozen chips. Yum.

Go to the flower market and buy the beautiful fresh produce, absolutely amazing fish, fruit and veg there. Also, in the old town just round the corner from the flower market tucked down the a couple of the side streets are little take away pizzerias selling ridiculously large and delicious pizzas really cheaply. I went to Niece last summer and loved it.

I'd go with cured sausages ( salami etc) nice ham good cheese French bread fresh salsa a small amount of salad . Very easy to prepare , you can nibble on the food and each other it won't spoil if you get ummm distracted. grin and of course strawberrys and cream for pud

New boyfriend and I are going to Nice for few days in August.

I'm trying to do an online shop for the flat at the moment. What simple but special suppers would you make?

Thanks for ideas
