Gran Mere’s Ragoût de Porc & Salade de Thon

My love sent me these pics to show me what I was missing.  Gran mere has done it again.  Created a lovely luncheon for her grandchildren, and I being half-way around the world am missing out on the delicious affair.  And so, feeling left out the least I could do is share what is on the menu today and a helpful recipe below:

Ragoût de Porc, Salade de Thon and Fraises et crème
