When you need a hand...

or any other body parts, go to the Paris Puces Saint Ouen!
 Hands, legs, heads and dolls are a big hit. I might use a helping hand from time to time.

Have a good weekend

A carousel ride is what I'd need to brighten up this gloomy Friday. But no despair, Can't rain all the time... (The Crow, 1994)
Right? RIGHT?

Paris, Le Pas Sage... the unwise

During my Parisian gateway, I found a lovely gem I'd like to share with you. The place is called Le Pas Sage, which means the unwise and is a pun on the word "passage couvert" (covered passage) as the restaurant is located in the famous Passage du Grand-Cerf (2nd arr.). The room is long and narrow with plenty of window seats for some people watching and offers a pretty interesting menu. I had a divine asparagus soup with poached eggs and surprise toppings, as well as a revisited version of a tart tatin. For extra entertainment I sat in front of the counter, with a colorful flower shop on the one side and a stunning fish in a cocktail bowl on the other side. If you're planning a trip to Paris, don't miss this place! 
PS the fish didn't have a name yet... if you find out, please tell me! :)

Brunch every day!

On Sunday a friend came by and brought homemade waffles*!
Can I eat brunch every day, pretty please? 

*since I didn't have syrup, I made a cream with ricotta and mixed berries and a sauce with honey and brandy. Not bad! ;)
