We travelled to Montreal for the weekend to visit the Boy Child and his Fiance. The guys took in a hockey game and my future DIL and I scarfed down the most delicious take away curries that I always like to get when we there there. We ate nann bread and looked though wedding books, while I gave my 2 cents on what she should wear. She asked how I was going to wear my hair......wild and wooley is how I usually go....
Montreal to me is about the architecture and the food. We stayed in the Old Port at Hotel Place D'armes. which had reclaimed brick walls and gorgeous bath products and excellent service. I inisted on breakfast at Le Cartet because I love boiled eggs for breakfast and my latte in a bowl. They also have the most amazing array of French products to purchase. I bought this can of choclolate sardines because they were just so lovely....I just don't really want to eat them.
Thay also have the largest assortment of chocolate bars I have ever seen. I bought these pink and white mini bars because of the wrappers alone.
And because I miss a real market in my own town, we went to the Atwater Market.
The French know food alright....everything was so beautifully laid out and garnished. I love market food.
Lovely seeing the kids.........................................................I've missed them.
