This morning’s breakfast was handmade pecorino cheese (made by our friends Loris & Giovanni) with a few bites of figs “liberated” from an abandoned tree down the road. Truly local!
We managed to go over the top with breakfast at a really beautiful place near the Louvre: breads and pastries, eggs (poached and scrambled) with fixings, yogurt with homemade mueslix, fresh squeezed orange juice, piping hot coffee, more pastries… AMAZING. The place is Claus – La Table du Petit-Déjeuner. Not inexpensive but a real treat!
Then Sweet Baby G and I went strolling to find ourselves in a fancy pants chocolate shop. They also had those pretty cookies… oh, I mean macarons. Gorgeous!
One of our favorite “traditions” on the farm is Happy Hour: heavy appetizers and refreshments in lieu of a big meal. We picked up some yummy cheese at a French coop, a baguette, some chips (you can take the boy out of America but…), and a bottle of wine. That, with a sliced up apple, made for a pretty nice happy hour. The only things missing were Luna, Gidget and Buttercup! Can’t wait to see them!
