*Saturday - Flank Steak Sandwiches (on crusty baguette with a bit of sweet potato mash spread on the bread. So, so good. Don't knock it until you try it!!)
*Sunday - oh, how we ate! Waffles for breakfast! Chocolates at lunch! Sugar cookies all afternoon! And Croque Monsieur for dinner. And to top it all off? Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream for dessert. My stomach still hurts.... ;)
Favorite? Croque Monsieur. Salty, smoky ham, smooth gruyere cheese, and a dash of dijon piled high on crusty Italian bread and baked until bubbly and golden brown.
There is most definitely not a worst this week.
We had such a lovely weekend. It was quite quiet, actually, for we didn't have any plans. But it was perfect in that the days seemed endless, and each moment unfolded exactly how I might have liked to have planned it, if I had tried. On Saturday we made and decorated sugar cookies (which we've been noshing on ever since!) and we took a trip to the French Market to pick up the ingredients for our Sunday Valentine's dinner. (And of course, nibbled on chocolates while there!)
Sunday began with some fabulous homemade waffles by dear Hubby (I'd say it's his signature dish!) and included a family walk in the bright sunshine around the neighborhood that afternoon. We dined on Croque Monsieur over candlelight and then had to.die.for chocolate mousse for dessert. Each bite a melt-in-your-mouth cloud of rich chocolate.
To me, it really was the perfect weekend.
And I hope that your's was quite the same.
*I know I usually don't post what we ate on the weekends, but this time I just had to give our whole week some screen time!
