Bastille Day . . .

T'was a gloomy, rainy, stormy day in Tauranga.

This is what I ate.

This magnificent Almond Croissant was from The Yellow Place French Cafe
Fresh out of the oven when I picked it up on my way into work. 
Managed to resist demolishing til lunchtime . . . but it was not easy!  

Classic French Steamed Mussels

I used this recipe - Mussels steamed in:
1 T Butter
1 Spring Onion
1 Clove Garlic
1 Cup White Wine

Served with Wholemeal French Bread - Amazing.

Think the French well and truly put us to shame with their National Day . . .

Waitangi Day needs better food.
