French is such a classic cuisine, it’s surprising we haven’t tried it already. This weekend was filled with simple, elegant ingredients cooked low and slow. It would have been nice to have a glass of red wine and some camembert or brie, but these are the sacrifices I make for my baby! We had one day in between the entree and main and the dessert – we visited some friends for dinner and they just happened to serve French macarons afterwards, keeping with the theme even when we weren’t cooking!
I’m joining today with Anne at In Residence for a few thoughts on what I’ve been up to this month.
This time, we were basing our cuisine night on whatever country won Eurovision. I thought that meant we’d be doing a European cuisine, but the winning country just happened to be Israel! It’s a weird song, but it’s on the right side of Eurovision weird and a powerful statement against bullying. We did an Egyptian cuisine night last time, so I think this marks the first time we’ve done two bordering countries one after the other.
