It is the last day of the 2008 Tour de France, and yes I am already in my Post Tour Depression. What am I suppose to do with myself every morning at 5am? I was up very early today to finish the wedding cake I was making, more on that tomorrow. So I was able to see the very start of the race live and awake. You know like way back when before we had DVR's, three years ago. As they ride into Paris through the Alma tunnel where Princess Diana died and then onto the Champs Elysee and then around the streets 8 more times with the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe in the background. What's not to love!
So tonight was a classic Bistro meal. Steak with a Cognac, peppercorn cream sauce, Pommes Frites and Haricot Vert with Garlic. A meal John really got on board with, what man doesn't love steak and potatoes.
So now the Tour is over and so is my Tour de French Cuisine. I can't go back to eating just any old food now. But don't worry I won't start making meatloaf. (I know there are lots of people that love meatloaf, so I mean no disrespect)
Viva la tour!
