Darling Things


new plates, originally uploaded by sweetmondaygirl.

I had a friend in town last weekend and we ate at two of my favorite French restaurants in town. They are most likely NOT two of the best in town, but I have personal attachments to them, their food is tasty, and they are inexpensive enough that I can frequent them without feeling guilty.

At both meals, our food was served on lovely white plates with blue around the rims. While I have no idea if there is anything French about this type of plate, eating off of them made me feel more appreciate and captivated by my food, made me savor it more, and I KNOW that is a French thing.

I was thrilled, later in the weekend, to find some similar plates at Target for only $3.99 each. I scooped up two in blue and two in yellow. Last night I had my first meal on one of them, and it was divine.

Savor your life, Kid. It's a good one.

I'm not sure if this makes the plates more 'french' but during a weekend in Lille, France last year I ate in a restaurant which served the food on white plates with blue rims...
