Date night #3 - France

Imagine that we have left Italy, the place of romantic water ways and rolling Tuscan hills and we are now traveling by train through the country of France. We stop off in Paris for dinner and a movie.

"What shall we have?" You ask your husband.

"No clue," He replies.

You find the first restaurant you see that has a great view of the Eiffel Tower and take a seat. Nothing on the menu looks familiar, cause its all in French but you have Google translator :). You manage to decipher some kind of tuna fish sandwich. You think, why not.

 The sandwich is like nothing you have ever had before. Its covered in olives, cucumbers, red onion and Brie cheese. It's drizzled in a vinaigrette with a little hint of red wine. It's finger licking good.

As you sit and watch the sun set behind the Eiffel Tower you wish you could never leave. So why not take this experience home and have a great date night while the kids are tucked soundly in their own beds?

My husband and I had a nice relaxing night of wonderful food and a fun movie. It had been a long frustrating day with the kids. I think they might be deaf. It's either that or their ears don't work anymore. After this long day of yelling till my throat was raw, I was glad to just sit down, put my feet up and do nothing for the next two hours. I didn't have to worry about little hands putting things in little mouths that didn't belong there. I didn't have to tell anyone to stop running in the house. All I had to do was... Nothing. :)

After we had the best tuna sandwich I had ever tasted (Didn't know tuna could be sooo good, you can get the recipe here) We sat down with a glass of mango hard cider and watched a movie set in France, The Three Musketeers. Love this movie. It had been several years since I last saw it, so it was like a whole new adventure to me. Too bad they didn't make a sequel.

So, the next time you need a date night and don't want to find a baby sitter. Sit down to a little night in Paris and enjoy yourselves.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
