I meant to prepare a lavish French dinner tonight in honor of Bastille Day, which celebrates the French Independence and storming of Bastille. But with writing articles and obsessing over my “touring Seattle” novella yesterday, I forgot all about it.
Yesterday, Josh and I went for a walk in Belltown. We wandered into Boulangerie Nantaise, an organic French Bakery on 4th Ave. I have no idea how I missed it all the other times. It’s cute, trendy, and smelling richly of yeast and bread. And the baker was so friendly.
Since it was the end of the day, the baker gave us some bread because she couldn’t keep all that bread in her freezer and can’t sell it the next day. So she sent us home with a giant focaccia, 3 crusty mini baguettes, and a delicious country French loaf topped with sesame seeds. Josh can’t eat any of it, but I thought I’d take some pictures of it anyway. Ah, crusty, chewy French bread. I miss it. I admit it.
Here is my lunch in honor of Bastille Day. Crusty French bread with an assortment of cheeses. And cherries for good measure.
