Santa stopped by the Marais on his french motorbike before heading out on his run this morning. He probably just needed a café au lait and some pain au chocolat for the reindeer - at least that is what I told my son. We will be heading out also, but by train if the weather is permitting. I hate to think of all of those who got stranded this year. Tonight we will all sit down for a traditional French Christmas dinner. Here is what we will be eating.
Foie Gras poêlé aux figues Seared Foie Gras with Figues
Chapon aux marrons
Capon with Chestnuts
(I just read the wiki article on the Capon and it seems that he is the Farinelli of French roosters.)
Brie aux truffes
La bûche Yulelog
Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight!
Joyeux fêtes !
