Vive la France! More like, vive la French Food Friday! (Note - the title is translated from Google Translator…so who knows if it’s right.)
I stayed, only because it was snowing out and it was already past my hanger point (hunger + anger = hanger…for me, it usually occurs ‘round about noon time or any other time I haven’t eaten in a timely fashion.) I perused the menu and decided on Quiche Lorraine. I’ve never had quiche and I used to work with a really nice lady named Lorraine so it seemed like my best bet. I also ordered an alpinette which is apparently French for “overpriced roll.” I also ordered the potato soupe which was thin and tasteless despite the extra “e.”
Major disappointment - there’s egg in quiche! I’m not a huge fan of eggs and I’m even less of a fan of eggs at lunch. It was pretty horrible. I only choked down about half of it before I gave up trying. Thankfully, I had my overpriced roll and vowel heavy soupe to quell my hanger. Now, 2010 Denise would’ve written off the whole quiche family on the basis of this one episode alone but I’m willing to admit that the quality of the food was a reflection of the restaurant. So, let’s call this French Food Friday a practice run before Actual Good French Food Friday.
I guess since I’m open to the prospect of eating a chili dog, I’ll consider being more open to going to France too. Who knows, maybe I’ll even eat a chili dog in France!
