Bon Appétit - Day One

I swear this isn't going to be solely a french food blog, but here are some photos of my first few meals. A Parisenne tartine for lunch and pan seared tuna with mashed potatoes and duck ham for dinner.

Airplane food

My first flight to Paris included a quick stop over in Dublin courtesy of the fact that I was flying Aer Lingus. A fairly quick five hour flight that started 5:45pm Eastern Standard Time and ended in Dublin at precisely 5:00am in the morning Irish Standard Time. Within that time frame I had managed to watch Ratatouille, The Watchmen(with blurred blue bits all about), and more than half of Benjamin Button which was about at the point where Brad Pitt didn't look like a creepy short old midget. For dinner I had ordered the Chicken with rice and vegetables. Looking now at the photo, it's looks less appetizing than it appears, but I assure you it was delicious and molten hot. I suppose hunger can make anything taste fantastic especially after watching Ratatouille on an empty stomach. The block of tofu in the top middle was actually cheesecake and the apple sauce foil cup was really just water...

And of course after landing in Dublin, I had breakfast at the Irish Pub in the airport. Miriam I hope you're proud...

Hi! bonjour! Ca va? So tomorrow evening I'll be off on my way to Paris with a few stops afterwards to Germany, Greece and Italy and London thrown in there somewhere for good measure. I have a few events lined up while I'm in Paris(seeing Regina Spektor, partying it up for Bastille Day and going to Euro Disney). But on Sunday July 19th, I'll be going to this:


I can't wait...for now it's off to finish packing.
