CSJ Lunch

Yesterday the English speaking mothers from my school got together for lunch. There were seven of us who met after dropping our kids off at school. I think there might be one or two other English speakers, but really there aren't many more.... and that's probably out of 150 families at a "bilngual" school.

We met outside of the school and walked to Le Kiosque for good company and a delicious meal. Of course, you have to work to find a bad meal in Paris -- at least outside the tourist areas. We talked about the sales, the spouses, must-go to restaurants, and anything else that came to mind. It was great since we don't usually hang out together as a group.

Everyone enjoyed the meal, and we were all extremely impressed with the presentation of the Coquilles St. Jacques (CSJ). Don't you agree?

Of course, what I found really funny -- and the point of this boring post -- was how they managed to keep it that way...

I'm having a wonderful laugh right now. You certainly have an eye for things - keep clicking that camera!

What kind of camera do you use?

I'm really surprised they made it to the table like that - isn't presentation 50% of the meal here?

BM, It's so funny to see clothespins on your meal, although they looked clean.
Terry, Thanks. I'm having fun with my camera!
Scubs, Thank you for asking. I use a HP R707. I just bought it a couple of months ago. It got a good rating on amazon. It's a nice camera, and very portable.
Vivi, Well we didn't know what to do with the clothespins, but then the waiters came over to declip them. Very strange!

Miam.... compared to the tuna sandwish I had for lunch... this looks delicious...
