So I've been a bit nostalgic about my summer and the good times we had. Maybe because the weather was actually very summer-like (for once) and now the chillier air is quite a contrast. Allow me to indulge in some summer memories.

Last Sunday we got out and did something to beat the blues- a little visit to the port city of Boulogne and its historic walled town center.
We also ate at what had to be the worst restaurant in Boulogne in terms of service (s-l-ooooo-wwwww) and which boasted a very mediocre menu. And one of the funniest menu translations I've ever seen!
Google translate at work, people. Pavé is a piece of meat but they translated it as "paved", as there is also the verb paver (to pave). Emincé should again be pieces of meat which are sliced thinly not simply "sliced thinly", and filet is the same word in English, but in French it can also mean a net, as in the net when you play tennis. I should have seen it coming that this restaurant wasn't up to snuff by its menu alone!
This weekend I'm just cleaning a bit (as Juliette's school friend and next-building neighbor has come to play) and tomorrow will be in-law visiting. We're settling into our school and work routine and trying to go with the flow.
Here's wishing you a cozy and productive fall, y'all!
