Dreaming of Paris

Winter in Toronto is bearable because we have clear blue skies but today is grey and overcast, very Parisian weather. So to keep up the theme I went for lunch at Union, a Toronto restaurant that models itself on Parisian bistro. To complete the theme  Kim Sunee joined me for lunch. Kim has spent a lot of time in Paris and in Provence. We had fun reminiscing about favourite haunts, life and bemoaning how little money authors make.


Last week my husband and I watched the film Paris not the greatest movie,  but for anyone who loves Paris it showed the city is at its best. And revealed its residents often at their worst - the boulanger's wife for example. So Paris has been haunting me this week, enough for me to wish I could pop to my local traveling market, pick up some oysters, good butter, a baguette and on the way home pick up a bottle of wine from my favorite wine store, then and spend the evening enjoying my bounty.
