June 5th, 2013 | Good Morning Sunshine & Lunch In Paris

I really love simple breakfasts like this on bright, sunny mornings. It just makes life seem that much more amazing.. it’s true what they say, it really is about the simple things. This is one of my favourite morning meals, cheesy scrambled eggs. Easy & delicious.

I recently picked upLunch In Paris again. I originally bought it for a friend’s birthday back in February, ended up peaking at it and then couldn’t put it down. So I had to buy her another copy hah! Life got busy, and I kinda forgot about it for a little while. For some reason I always find it just so hard to find time to just sit down and read a book. I have a number of books that I’ve started but never actually finished. (Does anyone else do this?)

Anyways, it really is a tremendously good book. I rarely recomend a book before I finish.. but it really is worth picking up. It’s really witty and actually has me snickering out loud. Each chapter ends with 2 or 3 french recipes which just makes the book extra special. It’s the author’s memoir about falling in love with both Paris & a boy, which sounds a little cheesy (like my eggs) so I feel the need to clarify that it’s not a fluffy romance story. The book starts off with “I slept with my French husband halfway through our first date. I say halfway because we had finished lunch, but not yet had our coffee.” I died a little when I read that haha! The recipe section for the first chapter is titled “recipes for seduction” and one of the serving guides says “serves 4 or 2 if you’ve worked up an appetite.”

Still not sure about it? You can read the first chapter online here.

    I totally do that. I have about 5 books right now that I am in the middle of. ha! You’re not the only one, don’t worry. Reading is one of those things where I really wish I could get into more but I just lack the attention span or something.

    By the way I am so impressed with the way that you find a way to make even ketchup look good! Seriously though, this looks amazing.

      I managed to almost finish one this week on my 3.5 hour journey (one way) to visit a friend for a few days. Progress!!!

      And thank you! I’m a total weirdo and seriously think that food tastes better if it looks pretty.

    Mmm I could totally go for those eggs right now.

    I totally thought about Paris, Ontario when I read your title. Haha. But hey, you were in Brantford today, so that’s pretty close! Ahaha.

    I might have to check out that book! Keith said he’s taking me to Chapter’s tomorrow… so woo!

      I could spend a lifetimmmme at Chapters. I was really mad that Limeridge mall didn’t actually have a chapters and it was down the street ’cause I wanted to go look at some things I’ve wanted for a while.

      Have you ever been to the Antique market in Waterford by the way?! It’s kinda super amazing. I try to go there at least once a year since it’s so far for me but if I lived like an hour away I’d go all the time!

        Yeah Limeridge sucks because of the no Chapter’s. But hey, still better than Lynden Park Mall… AKA cell phone alley, ha!

        I haven’t been there! Surprisingly, haha. Next time you’re in the Dover area, check out the Crepe House! SO GOOD. YUM.
