Micaela in Paris - Part 3

a much needed break playing south park tower defense on xbox

got this cider from the market by my house for 3 euros

got these parsnips from the market also because i've never made parsnips before and i see them everywhere here.

the cards i got at that art and design high school.

butte aux cailles on sunday

hahahah it says "Likez moi on facebook".  if you know french its funny because they just threw a z on the end of like so it's like a french word.

some kind of thyme chicken with cream sauce and those awesome thing sliced fried potatoes.

some kind of pork and ham thing with cheese and this sauce on top with mushrooms and those thin sliced fried potatoes.

looks like you can charge your own electric car at these charging stations

Catharina, the girl i photographed and drew at cafe le progres's fiance is the manager at this place, Fish la Boisonnerie so we ate there and it was delish.

Pasta with pesto and parsnips and ricotta and duck?? And blood sausage

Some kind of white fish over amazing cabbage cooked with butter, alsoserved with bulgur (right?) and bread crumb crunchy things

mike hittin' the french onion soup with a blowtorch

french onion soup is pretty easy to make actually.

our "Basque" salad, because it seems like basque stuff just has thin sliced fried potatoes thrown at it.

Saffron something something rice.  did you know saffron is the world's most expensive spice because the saffron crocus bears up to 4 flowers each with 3 stigmas and the stigmas can only be picked by hand and it takes 250,000 stigmas tomake just half a kilo of saffron, hence its high price. Fortunately, alittle saffron goes a long way. (partly from wikipedia and BBC food).

post office next to Parc de la Villette
