After all the horrible salad misadentures let's all breath a collective sigh of relief...ouuuui, no more bizarre Parisian salads (ever again).
Anyway, today's lunch was such a pleasure... and therefore it is a pleasure for me to share it with you. Enjoy!
Two quiches and a lovely cake.
First up is the quiche Lorraine...
and next up is the quiche poireaux...these are traditional favorites.
Here we have a close up on the quiche poireaux...the crust is delightful and the filling is just heavenly.
And here is the quiche Lorraine...
The two delicious quiches were followed by this very interesting cake. At the boulangerie they call it "Caraibes" which means Caribbean..obviously, I was expecting some Caribbean fruits...and so, do grapes and strawberries come from the Caribbean? Perhaps I will do some research.
In any case, this was a very nice cake and since the whole lunch cost less than what I had paid for my various salad fiascos, I'm happy. It's also so much more fun to take photos of food that is good.
This weekend I am going to make a chicken machbous which require lots of spices, oh happy me! Please pray that I get out of bed early enough tomorrow morning to start the whole delightfully complicated process...I'll try to get the results in on Monday but since I also have plans to go and check out "Le Diable s'habille en Prada" Sunday afternoon...who knows? anyway, Tuesday at the latest and big biz de Paris!
Happy lunching toujours!
