This is a picture from the first lunch I "made" in my new apartment. Even though summer's essentially over, the tomatoes here are still sweet and delicious.
When I was walking around in Vieux Nice, I stopped to get some gelato and was amazed at the variety of flavors they offered. What did I end up chosing? Salted Butter Caramel. SO heavenly.
After a meeting at the university one day, I stopped for a quick lunch of Quiche Florentine. The crust was so flaky and perfect and it was served piping hot.
This was a ridiculously ambitious sandwich I made for myself one night for dinner when I was starving. It consists of baguette (DUH!), tuna fish (in olive oil, of course), sauteed mushrooms and shallots, swiss cheese, sliced tomatoes, and slices of hard-boiled eggs. When I tried to combine these two halves it was the biggest (but most delicious) mess ever.
I've encountered this type of cookie a few times since I've been here. It has a yummy chocolate filling and I love how cookies like this are not RIDICULOUSLY sweet (so you don't feel bad eating more of them). At first I thought this guy was some sort of super hero but then I realized the cookies are called the Little Prince cookies, and now I love them even more.
As soon as I can, I'll post some pictures from a trip this past weekend into the French Alps and some wild fruits and herbs I encountered.
