We Made It !

Thursday, December 21, 2006





Seems like we would never get to France but we finally made it, happy and safe!
The plane never left on Thursday so we left on Friday qnd got rerouted through Houston. We literally ran the whole airport to make our connecting flight for Paris where we late. We waited 2 hours at the luggage carousel to find out that one of our suitcases had not left Houston when we did.... The airline company tracked it down and the bag was finally delivered to us sunday night... we are extremely relieved because B. now has clothes to put on his back, we got shoes and all the presents we had gathered the last couple of months.
We have been touring the beaches of Normandy for the past 4 days and paying tribute to the men of D Day. Very emotional for the both of us.

We are back home, a few kilometers outside of Versailles, and we are now getting ready for Christmas. I have NO time to sit down at a computer and upload pics and blog, between visiting the family and friebds and helping my mom with all the upcoming festivities, so I think you won't see much of me until I come back.

To leave you on a culinary note, here are some of the things being cooked from scratch in our household: foie gras terrine and pate, smoked salmon, chestnut and apple stuffed capons, duck sausages, praline and Nutella Yule Log, Nougat and passion fruit ice crea, yule log, 120 petits fours, truffles,.... 2 days in a row and most likely again for New Years Eve. Insanity now prevails!!!

Everybody, have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

So glad you made it to your destination safe and sound. It must be wonderful to be home for the holidays with your family.
We're still enjoying the goodies you sent. I've had to hide the Belgian chocolates from my husband because he was eating so many of them!
Merry Christmas!
