A Big Birthday Adventure

To celebrate Dave’s big milestone birthday, we’re going on an adventure to Paris and Reykjavik! I’m taking an actual, no-internet vacation, so you won’t see me back here until the end of March. Instead, you can imagine us here…


And here…


We’re going on a bike tour in Paris, shopping on the Rue Cler then having a picnic by the Eiffel Tower, visiting the Orangerie Museum to see Monet’s Water Lilies, and, of course, eating all the things! I’m really looking forward to steak frites at Bistro Paul Bert and whatever they come up with at L’Ami Jean. And it looks like the temperatures are going to be in the 60s, so I will finally wear something other than fur-lined boots and a down-filled parka.

That is until we get to Reykjavik, where I’ll be donning my silkies, coat, hat, gloves, and boots because we’re going an on epic adventure to explore Snaefellsnes — we’ve been promised a troll sighting! We’re also planning a meander around the cemetery at Hólavallagarður, a shopping excursion for handmade sweaters, and a soak for our weary bones at the Blue Lagoon.

I’m sorry to abandon you but travel always gives me new ideas for recipes, so I’m sure I’ll celebrate my return with new meal ideas for you. Take good care of yourselves while I’m gone!
