Bonjour from France!
Yes, my partner-in-crime and I decided to take a two week soujourn in sunny France as the gloomy and often wet Melbourne weather was getting us down. Twenty five or so hours later, we arrived a little worn around the edges and in desperate need of a shower. Luckily it wasn't long before we were settled into our quaint Parisian apartment with a leafy view of the Eiffel Tower. Despite feeling as though we had been hit in the head repeatedly with a sock full of soap bars, we ventured out to a local street market to purchase some fruit for tomorrow's breakfast.
Right now, my husband is taking a nap to recharge his batteries before we venture out tonight in search of a French meal.
In the meantime, here is a link to a recipe I made just before leaving. I loved the citrus twist, but unfortunately I had some bad luck with the texture of the custard. Custard and I really are like oil and water - we simply do not mix.
recipe: Orange, lemon & vanilla galaktoboureko
