    I’m definitely not sold on the food, but the atmosphere looks absolutely amazing!

    It was! I know what you mean about the food; root vegetables and “hearty” stuff aren’t really my thing, so I knew French food (excluding the bread and pastries!) wouldn’t be my favorite. But just you wait, it only gets tastier!…

    Amber – I am thrilled you were able to experience this. And knowing it’s just the beginning of a 5 week journey, wow, what lies ahead? How does it get any better than your night on the town (PARIS, NO LESS). cjlf

    Oh WOW! Kir sounds amazing, as did that marvolous meringue dessert! And the Eiffel Tower must have been beautiful…

    It looks like you ate a ton of good food on your trip. I am jealous. We should have a dinner party sometime soon!

    Oh, and the profiteroles look absolutely yummy!

    The scenery looks amazing….especially the restaurant in a cave. I surprised you went for the French onion soup, given it’s beef broth base, but I agree that if you must try that soup, France is the place to do it.

    The meringue dessert looks ridiculously amazing.

    And now I want to go to France and use my rusty French to order kir.

    Yeah, it was a had-to-take-the-opportunity-to-try-it thing. If I liked it, I would have come home and tried to replicate it using vegetable broth, but it was not meant to be.

    The meringue was like a cloud…totally melt-in-your-mouth. Mmm. And I became verrry fond of kir—perhaps we should make a poor man’s kir for the next party…

    I love french onion soup and the word kir. I’m going to use it next time I have a pre-meal drink. Very interesting.
