A French Dinner & Parisian Micro Date
The votes are in: A trip to Paris is in order! Without haste, I got to work whippping up a french meal for our family. One that consists of white fish soup, (a bisque of blended thyme, potatoes, onions white fish-I used talapia- and more!) a scaled down version of Coq Au Vin (chicken, tomatoes, thyme, onions, carrots, wine etc,) , french style green beans, a baugette and french cheese.
|Coq A Vin has bacon and carrots in it, which I did not use, due to forgetting to pick these items up at the store :-/ I substitued the wine with sparkling grage juice|
|our french cheese: made in America|
|We don't drink wine, so we went with the next best thing|
|What's dinner without dessert? Chocolate Eclairs anyone?|
|An evening micro date on a street cafe in France. It looks exactly like that right? Well maybe not so, I was going for that look though.|
|The first part of our date-being in the city of love and art, we painted portraits of one another.|
|They look like twins oui?|
|A spitting image of me. Crazy hair do and all!|
|Danny hard at work on his masterpiece|
|We ended the night with some hot cider and chatting. I'm not sure if cider is a french thing, but I was in the mood for it.|
It was a wonderful romantic evening. We are definitley visiting France again!!
