Bastille Day 2017 – this is probably my utmost favorite of non-american holidays being that it’s an occasion to go full french on the menu (escargot!) and allows a moment to reflect on the memorable vacations we’ve had in the land of marvelous cheese and crusty baguettes. Today, however, is a spectacle with the U.S. President in ‘Paris-is-no-longer-Paris’ and I’ve been glued to the tv since 8 this morning.
The media (CNN, to be precise) was up and ready way before me. No need to repeat the same unfavorable views held by the press, but they had my ear when they mentioned Jim, the mysterious friend of Trump who no longer feels that France is France.
Dinner tonight: escargot, sea bream en papillote, banon cheese, baguette, apple tourtons for dessert, and a bottle of Brangelina’s, I mean ex-Brangelina’s MIRAVAL rosé. I hope it’s as good as the hype. Have a great weekend.
