Food Lately

Eating and drinking my way around Paris. No, not really. In truth, I rarely eat big meals. I'm much more of a "little and often" kind of person. Paris was very expensive this visit. And very, very hot. Which meant we had many stop-offs for small meals of iced drinks and sweet treats. We did eat in restaurants but I ended up not photographing those. Here is a small selection of the food and drink I consumed...

The best breakfast of the trip - Cafe Au Lait, Pressed Orange Juice and Crepes with Salted Caramel Butter

Unisex, Champs Élysées - Small dish of nuts; Vodka, ginger, pineapple cocktail; Cosmopolitan cocktail; Iced Cappuccino (THE BEST iced cappuccino I have ever tasted!)

I love this post, I rarely eat big meals too but I'm always snacking, especially if I'm on holiday! Those crepes look amazing, and cafe au lait's are my favourite coffee drink. Whenever I'm in France I always get cans of ice tea - they just remind me of holidays! x

Rachel said...

Those pancakes look SO good! And cold fruit tea in a carton? Amazing!

Becky said...

Dashfield Vintage said...

Oh no! Why do I always look at your blog before breakfast?? Now I can't for the life of me decide what I want to eat first today, it all looks amazing. I love your food posts! I was in Paris too recently and found eating pretty expensive... luckily I was staying with a friend so could have Breakfast and dinner at her place but the rest of the time I I pretty much lived off baguette and cakes!

Maria said...

I am literally drooling at my screen, gorgeous!

Mat said...

just posted a big long comment and it got wiped! damn it. i was saying that i really love your outlook on life, taking precious time to enjoy the very little things i life which make up your life as a whole. appreciating the small things is something i can get right on board with, it really is the small details that does it for me. taking the time to enjoy them is just excellent and I'm guilty of rushing them every now and again. I'm going to make the effort to thing more about the moment and nothing else.

glad you enjoyed my creation, again, the small details. and yeah, 60 is an amazing feat

Harriet said...

Oh wow, looks amazing! So much delicious food - and I like your little and often approach too!

Jen said...

Oh... yum yum and yum! Everything looks so tasty, but especially that last pot of ice cream. The biscuit! Lovely.

Winnie said...

Oh I'm craving a lovely hot drink and a plate of salty fries and ketchup right now. An odd combination but hey, that's what your post does to me!

Please may I? said...

It all looks so yummy, I can feel my waist expanding just looking at it!
