Monday Tidbits

21 Oct

Had a really nice day today. I invited Mitzi, Emily, Nancy, Ginny and Judy over for a Parisian style lunch. Quiche Florentine using my goat cheese from Paris. Very rich since I used real cream and bacon also. It was crustless which was cool. It came out of the pan nicely. I also made Angelina style ( a teahouse in Paris) by melting chocolate and mixing it with real whipped cream. It was yummy. We finished off with a piece of pumpkin cake. Lots of good visiting. It was fun to decorate with some French items that I brought back.
Now for a few photos.

dinner party (800x600)
The dinner party. You can’t see it but through that window is the bottom of the Eiffel Tower which lights up at night. Very interesting guests at the party, they were Americans who have places in Paris also.
cordon bleu dessert (800x600)
Our wonderful dessert that we watched prepared at the Cordon Bleu. It was sooooo delicious.

ja and frida
This was as close as I could get to the Frida exhibition. One of my days I used the umbrella. Felt very French.

high cliffs

The high cliffs that the troops had to climb up during the invasion. How brave all the troops were to have to try to take over these areas in horrendous conditions. It was rainy, cold and windy when we were there and it was easy to imagine how uncomfortable the conditions were.

You could go clear inside the bunkers.

lighted eiffel (600x800)

The lighted Eiffel Tower. The tower is like the mountains are here. It’s like you focus on it no matter where you are in the city.

That’s it for now. Still feel very blessed to go back to Paris and enjoy the country and the beautiful old architecture of the cathedrals, castles and the town of Bayeux.

    I loved the Parisian lunch. It was all so yummy and as always I enjoy your stories. Thank you for the invite 🙂
    By the way, I was eyeing your wooden cannister set when you said they were from Paris.
