I do like to kick off airline travel with a drink from Starbucks. It makes it feel like vacation!
I felt obligated to try escargot while we were in Paris. As you can see, we ordered six. We each ate one. Then the kids liked them so much, they each ate one more! So, I have tried snails... but only one.
At the same restaurant, we decided if we were trying new things, we should order the bone marrow on country toast. Yes, bone marrow.
Crepes from a street side stand. Spectacular.
Macaroons are so trendy right now. They were everywhere. Too sweet for me.
This is the wonderful salad I had at a little cafe on Ile St Louis.
Benjamin and Claire enjoyed hot chocolate many times throughout our trip.
One night we picked up cheese and bread to bring back to our apartment for dinner. Check out this cheese shop.
I was a bit overwhelmed. I don't know cheese that well -- in English. So, reading the signs and ordering in French was tricky.
I did recognize cheve coated in pistachios.
Here is our meal from that evening. We also picked up a roast chicken. Perfection.
We also enjoyed a fondue restaurant. Here is the cheese course. Are you sensing a cheese theme, here?
Each morning, we picked up breakfast from the bakery across the street and brought it back to our apartment. This is pan chocolat and quiche, plus a cappuccino.
This is my favorite sweet treat from the entire trip! It's an ice cream cone shaped like a flower. I chose raspberry, banana and chocolate.
Here is the shop that creates the beautiful petaled cones. You can have as many flavors as you like and the girls behind the counter use a flat paddle scoop to build up the flower shape.
Actually, I'll confess... we went twice in one day! The above shop was an afternoon treat. We found an additional shop of the same chain after dinner. It was our last day in Paris, so we splurged!
She even gathered tiny bits of speculoos cookies to sprinkle on the top of Claire's cone.
