WIAW – Summer weekend version

It has been a while since a WIAW post. Thanks to Jenn at Peas and crayons for letting me link up.


We have had beautiful weather here in Paris this weekend. Summer is here ! Bright blue skies, sun, heat, nice breeze…. my ideal summer day. When we get nice weather like this, my tastes change. I crave fruits and veggies.

Here was how today went down :

Breakfast : Multigrain toast with butter and a hard boiled egg. I felt like a change from pancakes which I eat almost everyday.

Lunch : As an appetizer we had melon (to die for !) and for lunch pork tenderloin that my husband cooked with carrots, prunes, bacon and cider. So flavorful. I had some quinoa and a salad with homemade balsamic dressing.

Mid afternoon snack : half a banana, yogurt and some flax seeds.

Dinner : I was in the mood for salad again, so I had it with some tomatoes, ham and a slice of multigrain bread with homemade guacamole. Cherries for dessert.

As I got back from New York a couple days ago and am still a bit jet lagged, I slept until 9 a.m. which is very late for me. By the time I got around to going out for my run it was 10:45 a.m. and it was getting very hot. I only did 6 km as I wanted to test out my new sneakers without over doing it.

I can not believe summer is officially here. I always get a bit sad, because the days start to get SHORTER….even though we won’t be able to tell for a few weeks, I KNOW it.

What meal did you love this weekend ? Any plans for the upcoming week ?

    We love Paris so much! Looks like a good day of eating! We’re going to one of our favorite restaurants in Chicago this week where we can get our favorite pizza before a movie.
