After our morning coffee and pastries, Darcy headed off to work. Craig, Mathieu, and I had decided to do some shopping to find a gift to celebrate Darcy's second Master's degree. I convinced the men that she would really appreciate some kitchen cabinets to add to what little she had. That would give her additional storage and prep space, which was desperately needed in her tiny kitchen.

of the variety of breads at our nearby bakery.
We broke for lunch before tackling the assembly of the new cabinets. At a little cafe on Rue Jeanne D'arc, sitting in the open air, we enjoyed delicious crocque monsieur sandwiches and crisp fries along with a lovely view of the cathedral. Then, back we went to assemble the cabinets, while Darcy returned to the university. It was a much more lengthy and difficult task than we had anticipated, but we managed to put together everything except the spice rack before Darcy returned home again.

|I could have made a meal from just the appetizer!|
