Happy Bastille day! Now, the only French thing about me is my name (Marianne), but I am going to mark this day all the same. For dinner, we are having French onion soup, with some cheese, bread, and plenty of wine. Yum.
In keeping with this, I am wearing red white and blue:
Usually I am not really a fan of the shapeless trapeze dresses on me, as I don't have super-long-and-thin legs sticking out from the hem. After today, I plan to wear this dress with belts, to keep from looking like a little kite. However, seeing as I plan to eat especially well tonight, I think I will be grateful for the extra room in the dress – and the camouflage it will provide!
Speaking of tasty food, and cheese in particular, today I went to my local cheese shop. Yep, I love Melbs for that – we have local boutique-like shops for cheese and wine within 5 minutes walk from our front door. Our local cheeserie (no?) is the Milawa Cheese shop, and, inside this wonderful old shop, they sell locally made cheeses of many kinds.
I am off to a client meeting, and then will be cooking for tonight. I am trying terribly hard to resist 'bon appetite' as it is just too cheesy (pardon the pun) but I hope you all have a lovely Monday evening! Bisous!
