Restaurants in Grand Marais [Moved from Minneapolis-St. Paul Board]

Wow, really love your gallery. North Shore Foodie Porn!!!! I've added a few new restaurants to my "must visit" list. Everytime I think I've been to every decent restaurant on the north shore, another one pops up! Thanks!

Peanut butter in France

Is it true that you can't get "north american" style peanut butter in France? I've also heard plastic wrap, tin foil and ziploc bags are hard to come by. Is this true? Is there anything else a "north americanized" family with kids would need whilst living in France for a year?

Provence on a budget

Thank you so much. There are sooooooooooo many attractions listed in the travel books. It's nice to be able to pinpoint a few highlights and create a "not-to-be-missed" list.

Provence on a budget

We are going to be spending 14 days in the Vaucluse region of Provence and 3 days in Nice in December. Our home base is a little village called Vaugines (near Lourmarin) and we will have access to a car. We plan to make a series of day/market trips to as many villages as we can and would appreciate any recommendations on reasonably priced places for lunch. We'd like to visit as many of the restaurants and cafe's that the locals frequent and not necessarily the tourists. Also any "must see" recommendations would also be appreciated as well as "must avoid" places/activities. This is our first trip to France so any advice would be great. Thanks!
