A day trip to France

We started our day at the Paris Street Market that is held six months per year in our neighborhood. It is a outdoor market where vendors sell antiques, food, jewelry, fresh vegetables and fruits, flowers, and their treasures. It draws huge crowds of people from all over to celebrate this beautiful time of year in Colorado.  
From the Paris Street Market, we traveled to our friend Josette’s home for an authentic French luncheon. Josette was born in Lure, France where her family owned a lace factory.


Josette married an American, Herbert. They made their way to Colorado where she became friends with Joy, who is my good friend.

Josette is an excellent cook and has given cooking lessons to several of us over the years. 

Bienvenue, mon ami!

On the menu today is Endive with cream cheese and smoked salmon,French onion soup, French deviled Eggs with homemade mayonnaise and crab, fresh beets, fresh Romaine lettuce with Josette’s salad dressing AND of course wine!

 The French onion soup was fabulous. The Swiss cheese was not stringy, very smooth and it melted in my mouth.  Cheers to you Josette for sharing your home and culinary talents with the Fearless Cook on the Inaugural Club event. We shall all come together again in July for our next cooking club event.

À votre santé

Maybe we will make it to Lure, France someday. In the meantime we can gaze upon this picture and dream of longer trips to come.
