Happy Wednesday foodie friends! Welcome to another edition of me eating my way through France – or at least through my university’s cafeteria, since I am basically living there (here actually – guess where I am right now) this week. Also being busy doing brain work all the time with the only exercise of heading to the vending machine to get more coffee I surely noticed a decrease in appetite. It’s fine, I’ll make up for it starting Saturday, when my mom, Jay and – surprisingly – also my favorite aunt will come! Remember the aunt I have been to Istanbul with and who I did visit last September? She spontaneously decided to join my mom for a few days. So we surely will take a few day trips and enjoy delicious French food.
But let’s talk about What I Ate
Wednesday Tuesday, first – and I hope you forgive me, that I’ll keep it short today, with due date being on Friday and having a surprise ok, I knew it 2 weeks ago French exam later today, I am kind of astound that I even made it to the party!
I was so busy that I didn’t even bring any food with me yesterday and had to make do with what the cafeteria offers. This resulted in croissant (sorry, I was so hungry at that point, that I started eating before I remembered to take a picture) and petit creme for breakfast, plus the banana I threw in my purse.
Because I forgot to keep the soup spoon for it. I had soup out of a cup with free baguette – the amazing thing about a French cafeteria, you can take as much baguette as you like with your lunch. The soup was carrot coriander and I really liked it. Sadly a small cup is never enough.
Yesterday was the first day in a while that I left school and managed to still catch a few sun rays. I headed home to Skype with Jay while cooking dinner and booking his return tickets (who wants to think about that before he’s even here?). I barely managed to eat a few spoonfuls before I headed over to the girls next door for French exam preparation – and don’t even ask, I don’t feel prepared whatsoever.
Making it back home around 10 pm, I finally managed to fill myself a bowl with my recent go-to-dinner: orecchiette pasta (my favorite type) with ratatouille and salmon patty chunks. Might sound weird, but it’s so easy to make and tastes divine – especially if I get the perfect ratio of pasta to ratatouille – didn’t do well yesterday, too much pasta, I prefer it on the soupy side. I ended my day by mindlessly passing out in front of the Bachelor. By the way, is it only me or is Juan Pablo slightly cross-eyed?
I’ll send you over with this important question in mind to our amazing host Jenn where you can probably see a lot more exciting, vibrant and delicious What I Ate Wednesday eats, than I had to offer today:
