Is it just me, or are you the longest month ever?
This year, you seemed to be especially blustery & cold.
I don't want to hurt your feelings,
but I'm so glad I can change the calendar to February tomorrow.
See you next year!

as seen from our chalet's kitchen window!)

|Posh apéritif, provided by us? Check.|
The next morning, we went for a walk by the lake...
|Yes, I know it's confusing. But this place is in Geneva... trust me!|
Like all restaurants in these parts, there's a menu posted outside.
But the le menu du Café de Paris is pretty darn simple,
because they only serve one thing!
Ok, ok... three things. Steak + home-made French fries + green salad. That's it, folks!
The steak came covered with a sauce made with
(are you ready for it?)
butter + herbs.
Which is obviously a fantastic combination.
Of course the recipe for this amazing butter, which dates back to 1930, is a secret.
You can read more about it on the restaurant's website here.
Y U M.
So, so, so delicious.
And so, so, so artery-clogging.
Or if you prefer, "enfin bref".
(That's an expression French people use when they don't want to spend any more time
thinking about gloomy things like clogged arteries.)
Lunch was delicious.
