Offal Day

I'm in Paris at the moment.

We arrived on Monday night and I had a big block of fois gras for supper.

Yesterday I had a day of risky food choices. First came the Plat du jour at the local restaurant for lunch, it was a burito or boudin noir - blood sausage. I opted for the boudin noir which was deliscious. In the evening Thomas and I went to a very nice little restaurant that we found on trip adviser. I started with pan fried fois gras on brioche with raspberry sauce followed by veal kidneys which were also delicious.

All in all, a good day with great food.

J has been promoted to the Dolphin team in the swimming club which means that he now trains twice a week and will be taking part in competitions. He is really excited about it all and it's great to see him so enthusiastic about a sport as he didn't really seem to be into floorball or gymnastics too much recently.
He celebrated by buying a new pair of swimming trunks with a voucher that he got for his birthday but I'm not posting a picture since I remember how many hits there were on the shot of him in pink tights...
