Le Deux Moulins

For my "history of feminism" class we have to read the Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir, which is kind of like running uphill both ways in galeforce winds. To try and motivate ourselves, my friend Laura and I went to the Cafe des Deux Moulins (which you all know as the cafe where amelie worked in the movie) to eat good things and read. It's a fabulous little art deco explosion of a cafe and despite being a tourist destination, the prices are fairly spot-on. Happy hour starts at 7:00 and the drinks (even drinks whith champagne) €3.50! Unfortunately, no reading was accomplished, but we did make an important discovery: fondant au chocolat. It's like chocolate souffle and yummy. And then we had frites.

Tonight my host parents are going out so I'm eating a french microwave dinner. Which are actually really good. I'm going to have raviolis.

I think rabbit is in the near future, but there was pumpkin soup last night and that was yummy.

I love pumpkin soup! Was it served in the pumpkins?

Not served in the pumpkins.... but in cute little bowls with sculpted faces on each side.
