This morning it’s in the 30’s here and the sun was late to come out. I guess that it’s going to be in the 50’s today. I was looking through some Pinterest boards that I have and I like to look at photos of Provence and Paris, France. Especially in the Spring photos. I think that it would be fun to have breakfast with fresh croissants.
People that are in Paris can get fresh croissants every morning. They are very time consuming to make and expensive to buy in the only place I know of around here that makes them from scratch fresh.
I think that it would be fun to have a French ham and cheese Croque Monsieur. Oui oui, how delightful. It’s easy to make one just like the one above to have right at home. I made one before from a recipe from Ina Garten’s Paris cook book and it was so filling that I could only eat about 1/4 of it.
Just imagine what it would be like to have an apartment in Paris and a balcony like the one above and enjoy coffee with that view.
I saw a blogger one time that lived part time in Paris and part time in California and actually had that view to work from in her home apartment. I can not hardly even imagine it in my wildest dreams.
I guess the only word for that kind of life would be delightful.
Fresh flowers from a Paris flower shop……..
Enjoy the treat of macarons made in Paris. OMG.
Shop at a real Paris Farmers Market for all they have to offer……
I am going to get the above book as it sounds interesting to me. I can’t even imagine a stroll through Paris.
Then a side trip to Provence…..
Seeing the lavender and sunflower fields……….
The beautiful villages……..
The gift shops and real French made soaps and sachets made from French lavender…….
I love a lavender wreath that is heart shape……..I gave my Mom one like that one time. She loved it.
French baguettes for sale everywhere………
I love how they have shutters on their windows and flower gardens…..
Tables outside and I like their french style doors to little patios…….
It’s just a style that I am attracted to……
Something about it just is beautiful….
Gruyere cheese is like $10.00 for a very thin portion in my local super market. I’ve never seen a huge round Gruyere cheese setting like the above. Awesome.
After enjoying a morning of thinking of what it would be like to visit France, I had to make myself a French style omelette. I had coffee in my Paris coffee mug and I used a Paris plate for the omelette. And that was my thoughts for today……..
