Today was another chill day in Nice. In the morning I ran down to get some fruit and bread, then we hung out in the Airbnb until 11:30 or so. I made some more dipping oil for the baguette and we snacked on that with some grapes as a light lunch.
We met up with Kat and walked down to old town Nice which is a maze of narrow winding streets. All of the shops were fairly touristy but it was still fun to walk around. We stopped at a little restaurant and got a few plates to share (hummus, chicken fingers and fries) since it was about 2:30 and we hadn't really had a real lunch. We originally had ordered some ceviche and a different dish but got the hummus and chicken fingers instead. Oh well, they still tasted fine.
Kat went back to her place to feed Rowan so Sam and I walked around a little more trying to find a souvenir. We ended up in a shop selling nougat and with a language barrier Sam ended up with a giant slice of it. Apparently it lasts for a while and they vacuum sealed it so it should travel just fine, but it was way more nougat than we were expecting.
After that, we walked down to the beach promenade and then made our way back over to Kat's place. The plan for dinner was going to be making a roasted pork dish at Kat's apartment and we still needed to pick up a few ingredients. We met Kat at the grocery and got everything else we needed, including more bread and some cheese to snack on.
Back at Kat's apartment, we let the babies have tummy time together and then hung out while dinner was cooking. Kat's brother, John, is in town visiting as well so he showed up with a big bottle of local white wine. Dinner was really good. The pork was marinaded with a bunch of spices like cocoa powder, red chile powder, cumin, paprika and cinnamon. It then simmered in a sauce for about an hour and a half in the oven before we cut it up into cubes. The bread was great at soaking up the extra sauce from the pork. We also had a cabbage salad with dinner and it complimented it well.
