This morning was coffee-less, so had to go out for breakfast. The funny thing about learning French and bring here is that the more comfortable I get the more mistakes I make. This morning I glanced at the menu and ordered the "simple" which was this.
Not what I had in mind, but delicious none the less. I went to Monoprix for staples, and moseyed back in time to put stuff up and get to the Louvre for my appointment for the Veermer exhibition. I could not start standing until 1:30 so I went to another special exhibit about Dutch painters in the Sully wing.
The detail in these pen and ink drawings was amazing and not a wooden shoe in sight!
Wow,I waited over a hour with an appointment and the place was crowded and hot! There were only about 5 to 6 Vermeer's even in the exhibit! I finally broke out a fan and got choosey about what I wanted to see. I was hungry and tired, so thought "self, if you want dinner tonight ( it as now about 3:30 PM) I think you need a snack". I was near Angelina and no trip to Paris is complete without a gulp of chocolate pudding so off I went! On the way I caught my first glimpse of her!
The Chocolate chaude was as good as usual, & served with plenty of whipped cream to mix in.
While I was there, I was knitting, near where I was sitting is a play ground and a little girl was not happy to be going home, the lady with her told her to look at my knitting. I had just finished up a dish rag I meant to use here. After we chatted a while I gave it to her and told her to help her momma with dishes. She was too cute, but her name is Sixteen, can you image in?
I came back, put on my prissy dress and went back to the Concorde station and walked to the restaurant. I had had my eye on this place for a while and never made it.
For starter a Tommatoe Soufflee, Green Salad with a green and yellow tomatoe and burrata salad.
Then a chicken and mushroom Soufflee for my main.
I am thinking that Soufflee is not really my bag. Pretty rich! We will see how the cooking class goes in a couple of days. On the way back I got another glimpse of my girlfriend!
This was both were accompanied by the house white which was perfect!
For dessert a cold caramel Soufflee.
