Happy 15 years!
How lucky are we to spend out 15th anniversary of marriage in Paris. Our tenth was in Antibes. We love France! To celebrate our day, we (among other things) lunched at the Bistro du 17eme. They have a prix fixe menu only for lunch and dinner, and the choices are all mouthwatering. I had an entree of carpaccio de boeuf on a bed of paper thin tomato rounds, all tender and tasty. For the plat principal, I chose sole with a pot of mashed potatoes which was very satisfying. My husband enjoyed a more exotic dish of ostrich of which he ate every bite. We finished off the meal with a mousse-like gateau au chocolat and the ever sweet and delicious millefeuille. I'm not sure what the traditional gift for the 15th anniversary is, but treating each other to a delectable French meal is always a great idea.
