Because everything tastes better over there.................I thought I'd show you what we used to grab for a quick lunch ( along with almost every one of the 30,000 attendee's ) at the fabric shows we went to.
Every now and then I'll make them here at home
Parisian Hotdogs ( & frites of course )
I thought I'd surprise John with them !
A hot dog in a baguette !
( the thought just occurred to me that although I don't post a lot about food - when I do it's always something extremely fattening and unhealthy )
John's on a ciabatta kick ( normally we buy baguettes ) so I used that instead.
You warm the bread in the oven - just enough so that the outside is slightly crispy -
And then you dig a hole through the center
When you buy these in Paris they're on a long baguette - I made small ones.
You can either squirt your mustard inside the bread - or spread it on the weiner itself - and insert it into the
hole ! ( of course it's dijon mustard in Paris - I was out so used French's which I prefer anyway )
Simple, n'est pas?
You can even cheat and add some of that tres gauche North American red stuff on your frites !
And that little difference between a hotdog bun and a baguette? Magnifique mes amis !
John came home with these ( because 10,000 calories wasn't enough for dinner ! )
Bad Monkey Mais Souffle ( popcorn ) -
They are to die !
The company started here in Montreal - by 2 brothers who used to be called " bad monkeys " by they're Mom..................Gourmet popcorn never tasted so good.
Popcorn after a Parisian hotdog you may ask?
Well it's perfectly acceptable if the popcorn is CREME BRULEE flavored !
We sat outside on the deck eating our dinner -
But we may as well have been sitting outside the Notre Dame Cathedral - or that's what I pretended anyway
I think Bad Monkey ships to the States if you'd like to try them ( this is not a sponsored post - just someone who loves popcorn ) they're link is HERE
Last night was the first time I tried it - incroyable ! ( incredible ! )
Here are some of the flavors
Bonne journee everyone !!!
