I had a lovely weekend! On Friday night, I went to a bbq with my French friends. The highlight of the evening for me was the grilled Camembert and brie with shallots! OMG. I LOVE FRANCE.
On Saturday, my friend Phoebe and I picnic-ed in Parc Monceau. The sun was out, and we spent hours chatting and trying to turn our ghost-white legs back to a normal color. After, we went to my newest obsession, MyBerry, for nonfat froyo. It’s like PinkBerry in the US!
I must have eaten something bad, because I spent all of Monday lying in bed unable to move, except to run to the toilet and toss my cookies (trying not to be graphic so I will use that food-related euphemism!). I am just happy I had such a good weekend because yesterday was anything but. Even sips of water made my stomach freak out. 😦
This morning I woke up feeling better, although still not 100%. I refuse to leave my apartment until I have work later because the idea of walking up the seven flights makes me want to hurl again – definitely don’t have the energy for that! Luckily, I had an apple on hand, so I made some homemade “applesauce” that was actually pretty good! I would even make it again to serve over vanilla ice cream. So, I guess something good came out of my sickness. Here you go:
Peel and chop one apple, any variety, into bite-sized pieces. Place in a microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 tbsp sugar, a dash of cinnamon, and 1 tbsp of water on the apples and stir together. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 1 more minute. Serve, and hope some color comes back into your zombie face.
