Foodie Trip by Cupcakes and Ribbons!

Just spent 3 amazing weeks in France.

3 nights with the kids in Disneyland Paris, fab. They loved every second and even we thought it wasn t all that bad depite previous misgivings!

Expensive though so take you own food where possible as quality poor for the money.

Fill up your water bottles too when you are there, look  out for the water fountains as drinks were 3euros each!

Guess what didn t even see a cupcake in site, could have made a bomb with a wee stall LOL!

Then on down to The Limousin neighbour to The Dordogne and Loire, to our house for a week, where we had total relaxation except for the occasional Moo and Cock a doodle do ( my wee boy does a great impression)!

There we ate delicious freshly laid eggs. My fave meal was some cooked to perfection limousin beef, pan fried and served with the most delicious fine green beans done in herb, garlic and lemon, amazing! If you are in Le Dorat be sure to visit  La Promanade, never a disappointing meal. Had delish Comte cheers and some St Paulin too which are my faves on a cheese board to die for.

In The Dordogne we had a most scrumtious meal at the L’Orangerie in Sarlat. My foie gras melted in my mouth and the toasted melba bread and walnuts gave it a perfect finish.

We sampled the most scumptious and colourful macarons too there from Limoine which had hand made chocloate, ice cream and lollipops. The macaron cabinet  has me gazing in wonderment at the amazing array of colours and flavours. A large box of 16 cost 18 euros which was great value and a lovely birthday present.

Spent a flying 2 hours in Brugges on the way back and did a chocolate shop and cupcake tour. Plenty of chocolate shop and a couple of lovely tea rooms one had lots of delicious cupcakes, they like snow meringue toppings over there. Its got me thinking!!

Love France and anything French and had the best hol! Back to cake xx
