we spend a lot of time at home
during the week.
most days i don't mind it.
i am a homebody.
but many days i feel guilty
for not getting out there
and seeing more of paris.
i've mentioned this before.
griffin is still having a difficult time
here and i just don't want to push him.
i know that there will be plenty of time
we did have a play date last week
and it went better than i thought.
i'm actually looking into the
bilingual montessori school that his
little friend attends.
i love to be in the kitchen.
i love researching recipes and making
out menus and grocery lists.
i love trying new foods.
last weekend at the market
i picked up this jar of confit d'oignons.
i love that it comes in a reusable weck jar!
it's so yummy! and i'm inspired to make my own.
so good on crostini or in pasta or add to soups.
and speaking of soups..
i've been making many lately.
maybe it's the cold weather..
maybe it's my new le creuset in teal!
last night i made ina's french lentil soup
hearty and good.
i've also made 3 of these in the past week.
turkey and rice soup/
chicken and rice soup.
after we ran out of turkey
i made a big batch of chicken stock.
homemade chicken stock in my freezer
makes me extremely happy.
i also use ina's recipe for chicken stock.
it makes the house smell amazing!
last night when the house was
i sat and did some of my christmas cards.
it's one of the things i love about this time of year.
sending and receiving cards.
we've lived in so many different places,
it's a nice way to stay in touch with our friends.
my weather app.
dimanche (sunday)..there are snowflakes!
snow in paris!
