I'm almost ashamed to show you this picture, because actually it isn't that Nice. As in Niçoise.
It's a gringo attempt at a pan bagnat. We had all the right ingredients (give or take), but we didn't drizzle them with enough dressing. We weighted the sandwiches down with a plate topped with the Joy of Cooking, but maybe we didn't wait long enough weighting.
We never reached garlicky wet oiliness. We failed to achieve "bathed bread."
Ah, well, it was darn tasty. Close approximation, given our non-Frenchitude.
I'm too old to sunbathe topless, anyway.
No Orangina, either.
