As it wasn't pouring down rain this morning, we thought it would be a good day to visit some more Christmas markets. We made a list of area markets and planned our Metro routes.
David had a goat cheese, mushroom and caramelized apple crepe:
I chose a very traditional cheese, bacon and egg crepe--pretty tasty!
We were very near my favorite church in Paris, so we walked around the block to do a quick visit. We think it's been partially restored since our last visit--it looks much brighter than we remember.
Finally, mission accomplished, we headed back out to the market. We did a pretty quick cruise through about half of it--mostly Made in China goods, and lots of "As Seen on TV" type of merchandise. Kind of a disappointment--but oh, well!
There were some nice Christmas decorations, though:
We also ordered a traditional French winter dish--cassoulet. It's one of the dished I'd wanted to try this trip, and we weren't disappointed. It was delicious! White beans, lardons and onions cooked with sausage and lamb. We were surprised at the size of it--it was huge! We only ate about a third of it, and I actually asked to take the rest of it home. Leftovers tomorrow!
Tomorrow in Paris? The forecast is for rain, rain, rain and wind--so we'll try to pick some indoor activities.
