I just spend two whirlwind days in Paris.  We jumped on the high-speed train and bulleted into France to see the wonders of the City of Love.  We walked the Champs D’Elysées, we climbed the Arc de Triomphe, we saw the Eifel Tower by night and climbed Montmartre to see Sacré Coeur.  Oh yeah, and we spend hours with thousands of other people in the L’ouvre Musée.  Hours.  But, what I can tell you, on this here blog, is that I ate.

I ate fresh-baked croissants for breakfast (still will forever remind me of the Van der Valk in Wolvega), crusty baguette from a boulangerie, crudités, “french” fries and pizza.  Ok, italian style pizza does not count as a French delicacy, but I just can’t resist a stone oven baked pizza.


We also stepped into a chocolaterie for les bonbons chocolat and into this candy shop.

An old fashioned homemade candy and cookie shop.  I felt like I was in Charlie and the Chocolate factory.  Which, just happens to be one of my wildest dreams.  Yes, you guessed it, I have a sweet-tooth, especially when it comes to life-sized gummy bears and chocolate rivers.

This dream store provided me with homemade lollipops and Mr. Foodlova and Mama Foodlova delved into the cookies.  We bulleted back to the Netherlands with full tummies.  Ahh, Paris!
