Finally, Darcy had a day off! She was finished with work and school except for a couple of times when she would need to be present for makeup tests with certain students. We slept late and after Darcy finished work on a paper she was writing, we headed out the door to go shopping. I was looking for baby clothes to take home to some of my nieces and nephews. There seems to a baby boom going on in our extended family. It was so nice to wander the shops with my daughter, talking and laughing, savoring every moment together.
Darcy had some business to attend to at the prefecture which would take a while, so I walked over to a cafe across from the cathedral, where I enjoyed a cafe creme while doing a bit of people-watching. I was quite content. After Darcy returned, we strolled over to a wonderful bakery on Rue de Bourgogne where we picked up some sandwiches for lunch. Darcy chose the duck breast with herbed cheese and fig jam. My sandwich was pate and onion jam. Both were on crusty baguettes and were quite good.
We shopped a bit longer and then headed home to prepare the crepes for our evening meal. We made buckwheat crepes for the savory gallettes and some wheat flour crepes to be filled for dessert. It was fun taking turns swirling the thin batter around on the pan and watching the stack of finished pancakes grow higher.
When the patio set was unwrapped and placed in the courtyard, we went upstairs for drinks and chips before dinner. The savory ham and cheese gallettes were wonderful! We enjoyed dessert crepes of strawberries and whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate. My, they were tasty! Darcy also made one of chestnut paste and chocolate and Mathieu concocted a Margarita crepe. That was a fun meal.
