Theme Day - Nourriture à emporter!



Carry-out!

In Paris my favorite "carry-out" is not a single café or bistrot, but the whole row of shops at Place Maubert.  One can start at the wine shop with the friendly King Charles Spaniel; move next door to the fromagerie, to the market on the corner for some fruit, the Charcuterie for saucisson sec, and finally Eric Kayser for une baguette Monge and a pastry for dessert.


You always stop last at Eric Kayser so you can stand in the fast-moving line for baguettes, still warm from the oven.  While you are there grab a little something to have with your café in the morning.  
Eat one of the warm baguettes as you stand on the street outside.


Now I am hungry!

Thats one thing only in France. Need a holiday soon there if it's just for the food.

I don't believe there is anyplace better for carryout in the world than Paris. Wonderful bread and pastries, crepes, and let's get a little cheese to top it off! Nice photo, Genie!

Ah, French bread! Just what the doctor ordered!

That's my kind of food! Yummy, Genie.

J'ai l'eau à la bouche! This brings back great memories. Nice shot!

Yes, my favorite meal! (But I'll have a glass of Pineau des Charentes to top it off—carried away from the Nicolas store on the rue de Buci. Remember?)

Terrible as this may sound, I've gone off baguettes! I don't like the sharp crust ... Good theme photo though.

Looks just about perfect to me. Is that a Bandol you're drinking?

This is just about perfect, Genie.

I'm going to Paris for a week at the end of August. It has been so long... I can't wait!

This picture brings back memories to me. Picknicks when we were young and life in France and hapiness were synonymous. Thanks!
