French Food Haul
Mind you I am watching that Directioners documentary right now, so crazy is feeling very subjective. I really want to give them all a hug, & maybe a little bit of a slap...
Anyway. This is my french food haul, & french drinks haul. If you'd seen my brother's haul you'd be awed by the amount that fits in my mum's tiny little Honda Jazz - those things are Tardis equivalent. Back to the point I am trying to make which is all about my haul. French food is iconic & really really good. I watch a lot of food network with being really really ill & having not that much to do with my life.... Food TV is insanely soothing. ANYWAY! Watching a lot of food network means I have seen a lot of barefoot contessa & so french food/ingredients subliminally become this big deal.
So when I got to France, french food was as exciting as french skincare which as a beauty nut is saying something.
The first thing I got was the Orangina Rouge. I actually got my first bottle of this on the drive down to where we were staying. I love blood orange juice but for some reason my M.E./CFS means that I struggle with acid anything & it drives me nuts because my favourite desserts are lemon. I end up craving even standard orange juice which I don't even really like that much. I never really liked it that much. But I crave it like crazy & I found that orangina is something I can actually cope with drinking. So when I found that France has blood orange juice I was so excited & it was perfect. It didn't hurt & it still tasted just as amazing as blood orange juice. Or at least as good as I remember it.
The French also have blood orange squash. Unfortunately it's really really really acid. I am hoping if I use it with lemonade it'll cut some of the acid but mixed with just water....lets just say I tried it 4 days ago & I am still hurting...
Anyway that's the last of what I bought in France. My next blog post should be the M.E. on holiday post, fingers crossed anyway :)
