Les Legumes, Les Fruits, La Patisserie!

Shopping for food is one of the most enjoyable parts of my day. There is such a variety to choose from, and they’re always fresh and in keeping with the season. Many of the pesticides and preservatives we use in our food in America are illegal in the EU. Though I think a lot of the cheese in France is illegal in the US… expiration dates and what not.  For lunch most days, I’ve been packing a few slices of bread, some canned fish, an apple, and I buy a carrot or cucumber or whatever looks good if I’m feeling extra hungry. It’s fig season right now.  I had a fig for the first time a week ago. I’ve been buying baskets of figs for lunch, too. I’m in heaven. Also, nutella. Every season is nutella season.

Let me just say that pistachio is a highly under-appreciated flavor in America. Nougat pistache!
