Notre Dame & lots of food!

The Notre Dame Cathedral

These two were photos were taken at a restaurant
that we had drinks and an appetizer at.
It's around the corner from the Notre Dame.
It was built in the 1500's and has it's original wine cellar.
We walked down to the cellar and picked out our wine.
This is where we had my birthday dinner- Boullion Racine.
It was built in the early 1900s.
When we arrived it was quite empty,
but soon filled up completely.
I loved the floor!
I had the duck confit with homemade mashed potatoes.
It was absolutely delicious!
J had the steak with pomme frites and loved every bite.
The real star of the meal was the appetizer- Asparagus Soup.
We INHALED it so fast that I couldn't take a picture.
It was one of the top three best things that I've ever eaten.
In. my. life.
Yes, it was that good.
J had the very authenticly French creme brulee while I had the
dark chocolate praline cake. It was divine. Rich, chocolately,
and creamy.
Mimosas and presents in bed on my birthday!
I LOVE my Stella & Dot starfish necklace!
We had brunch at a well known restaurant called Angelina.
They are famous for their hot chocolate and sweets.
The food was very tasty and the hot chocolate was sinful.
It tasted like a melted Hershey's chocolate bar with whipped cream.
So rich that I could only have one cup.
