Le Tour Eiffel
And so another Bastille Day was celebrated with my fellow francophile friend, Pat, at BRASSERIE by Niche in St. Louis. Pat traditionally awards me with a Bastille Day gift; this year it was a Gourmet cookbook featuring the flavors of Paris. I love to cook, but truth be told, I prefer going to a good restaurant and being waited upon! After a nice little cocktail of tequila, cassis, lime and bitters, I craved the mussels and frites. Hearty portions necessitated un sac de chien at the end of the meal when I could eat no more. The serveur should have attached a leash to the sac because I immediately forgot it until halfway home and had to loop around, half-looped, to retrieve it. Never mind, it was worth the effort. I always enjoy leftovers to recall a memorable evening!

Happy Bastille Day tout le monde! Perhaps next year we can all be in Paris together!
