Bastille Day

Tomorrow is Bastille Day and like any Francophile, I’m going to be celebrating by eating something French and listening to French music. It just so happens that French Onion Soup is on my bucket list this winter so that might be the ticket.

What French things do you think you’ll get up to tomorrow?

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. Oops, I was at a French restaurant last night, and I had steak tartare. I always wear a French Manicure on my nails and my toes! And my coffee will be a French Roast. Happy Bastille Day Genie.

    • Happy Bastille Day to you too Eva!

      I had french press coffee this morning ๐Ÿ™‚ Steak tartare is good! Not popular in general, but when done right. Mmmmm… I love the look of a french manicure but have never had it done. I bet they look elegant and classy Eva.

      • I love the French manicure and pedicure because I need not worry about clashing colours!
        Mmmmm, French press coffee; but be careful, as it contains the most caffeine of all the coffees! Apparently when coffee sits in water, the water molecules pick up more caffeine than when it’s steam going through espresso!

  2. I will be writing my dissertation in French literature! And when it is done, I want to eat only non-French food for a YEAR!

    French food is great, but I have been staring at this thing for so many years that I need a break!

    Bonne fรชte!!!!

  3. I’m going to a Bastille Day festival near where I live. I just hope the weather will be good. ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. Had a lovely morning @ Pine Harbour Fresh Market, practicing my now terribly rusty beginners’ French with the crepe lady. Dinner was linguine with a chicken liver & brandy sauce… maybe not so French but delicious anyway (Dad cooked too, bonus). Happy Bastille Day!

    • Mmmm…crepes sound delicious. I must visit a market soon. It’s been too long. I was thinking of having French toast for breakfast but since my husband was cooking, I let him cook whatever he wanted, so no French toast for us. We did have French Onion Soup though.
