September is set to be a fun month. First up, a little weekend trip to Paris to celebrate 5 years of marriage to the German. The past 5 years hasn’t all been mini-breaks and sunshine. In fact, there are many disadvantages to living so far away from my family. But I have to admit that ability to utter the statement, “we’re taking a weekend trip to Paris” has to be pretty high up on the list of advantages. What can I say, you take the good with the bad.
Which is why I’m posting a bit early this week since I will be blissfully offline for the next few days. Looking forward to catching up with everyone next week and finding out what Cher substituted for the dreaded bell pepper in this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Curried Chicken, Peppers and Peas en Papillote. In full disclosure, I actually substituted a thinly sliced chili pepper myself because I knew my husband would just push the bell pepper to side and it would have been wasted.
For me, this week’s recipe fell squarely into the never-would-have-made-it-without-FFwD category. Really, it didn’t sound bad, just not really exciting either. And it wasn’t exciting. But it was really easy and really good and (for probably the hundredth time!) I’m so happy that I am participating in this group because it is forcing me to make so many recipes that I would have otherwise missed.
And now that’s done, I’m off to the train station. A bientot!
