A Jewish Chidhood - Shopping for Sardines and the Happy Days diner on St. Michel
Saturday, 20 July 2013 14:25

I sit waiting for my Badoit and frites avec Heinz and Herbes de Provence. Something new to try after shopping for French sardines I hope will suit the taste of my friend, along, of course, with some Herbes de Provence.

Just the scent of the herbes sprinkled on the frites is wonderful and my first Badoit, 1778, a great year for mineral water.

So how did I get here? Well, pas mal, not bad on the frites and it's hard to dispute the mineral water.  Click here: HD Diner

The day starts out around nine with some writing, checking emails and then the decision. Should I go to Musee Marmottan Monet exhibit today or tomorrow? After posting another Blog, I decide on tomorrow. But for today...

Right now it is dessert. You see, it is a day of decadence where dessert always comes after frites. So it's a vanilla with chocolate sauce and whipping cream, a classic one you would find in a diner, no matter what country.

After all of that, another afternoon in the Gardens, Another Woody Allen Paris day a la Midnight in Paris, but no rain. I rather enjoy these days. I don't have to wear one of the Aloha shirts I am so fond of and which I brought 4 different silk ones.

I see a cross between a Cairn and Westie, one Jack Russell terrier, a small Yorkie, a ginger colored Mini Poodle. Earlier I saw a Yellow Lab, a Golden Lab, and one Black Paris dog, a combination of je ne sais quoi.

This is a taste of the day. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed eating the food and taking the snaps.

Thanks for keeping up with me in Paris and reading A Jewish Childhood Blog.
