Jeudi 24 Janvier Mon Traiteur
The great thing about living in Paris is you have your own deli, boulangerie,poissoniere, patisserie, fromager, la poste etc. You're loyal to the purveyors in your quartier and if you're lucky they will remember you and give you the occasional smile...
Mon traiteur has the yummiest stuff...miam miam
Almost always a line out the door.
No matter how many times I pass their vitrine/windows...
I have to stop and leche-vitrine/window shop/drool. I'm especially crazy for coquilles Saint Jacques. There's a special fete this weekend in Montmartre for the coquille Saint Jacques - la fete de la Saint-Vincent, le patron saint des vignerons/wine growers. 'Toute la Butte Montmartre sera en Fete! I really want to go to this.
Twice a week I get 100 grs(3 ounces) of beet salad and red cabbage salad from mon traiteur for about 2.50 euros...
To make 'Detox salade'.
Anything to counter balance the tres riche goodies I ate over New Years and the daily impulsive indulgences ahem.
While Django's doggie dreams of the traiteur's saucisson I dream of coquille Saint-Jacques. Have you tasted this?
BONNE WEEK-END PBers!
