The Beurre Le Bordier will be the last thing to go in the suit case, 6 250g package which I may add I got on Sale: BOOM! In addition to Le Bordier we purchased and taster 5 other butter this month in Paris. We used to eat exclusively President’s butter in France and now we pass it up, don’t get me wrong it’s still the #1 butter in France but there are so many more choices, becuuse there are so many choices why not try them all.

This afternoon we when for a walk through Passy for the last time on this trip and we walked over to the Jardin du Ranelagh and sat in the sun for a while and then moved to a shady part to continue our people watching and enjoying the spring colors of the park in Paris, what’s not to like about that?
We made reservations at La Table Lauriston for dinner, because we cook in so many time we figured we should sample a few more eateries to add to our list and people probably get tired of seeing my food on Pat’s Facebook page.
