Couldn’t decide what to have for lunch. Too many choices now. So we had a little of everything:) Half a croissant with country pâté, Comte, Dijon, and greens. Chips, cornichon, French icicle radishes, apples, and a green salad with a red wine vinaigrette.
We made these simple but delicious salami sandwiches for our picnic in the beautiful gardens of the Palais de Verseille. The bread was a nice baguette from the little corner bakery by Jessie’s apartment. Baked fresh daily, these baguettes are simply amazing. The salami, butter and emmental were nothing special, but on the baguette it made for a great sandwich. Not pictured, but also consumed were lots of salty green olives and a few bags of Lays Nature flavor potato chips. It was a nice little picnic in a beautiful garden.
Our amazingly kind host Cyrille made us savory crepes for dinner. He used his mother’s recipe, the very same crepes recipe that he used to make us crepes two years ago in our very own DeKalb kitchen! They were delicious. We filled them with grated emmental cheese, which tastes a lot like a mild cheddar. We had potato chips and nectarines on the side, and we finished the meal with chunks of delicious Roquefort.
I’ve wanted to try Atomic Burger since my first week in Oxford, and I finally did! We used some coupons we found in a magazine to get free milkshakes and chips with our burgers. What a deal! We ate with our Oxford friend Stu and our DeKalb friend Eric. It was a pretty good meal. I ordered the “Breakfast at Tiffany’s burger” which was cleverly named as it included a fried egg (breakfast) and onion rings (Tiffany’s). It was very tasty. The meat was juicy, the egg was fried to perfection with a runny yoke. The bun was crispy with a thin layer of flour, (I love it when they do that). The onion rings were perfectly crisp and slightly sweet. The chips had a generous dusting of some type of spicy concoction that gave them just enough kick to not be forgotten. The milkshake was smooth and creamy, and cold.
Charity had the bacon barbeque cheeseburger with carmelized onions. The burger was greasy and delicious. I enjoyed the real bacon after only getting English bacon for the last week. It was really good but I couldn’t finish it, I only ate half. The chips were nice and spicy, and the milkshake was sweet and refreshingly cold.
That’s right. But this time with baked beans! Don’t judge me.
Always a good choice at 3am. Chips and cheese, and all the usual stuff, ect ect.
