It’s been 4 days (I think?) since I last posted here and I’ve been itching to do so. I still find that it’s a little tricky to write on a weekday because of my busy work schedule, family duties, and going to gym. That last one is about 2 months old and miraculously I am not tired of it yet. I guess my body knows that I’m not getting any younger and I’ve been carrying these extra kilos for damn too loooonnnnng!Anyways, today is Friday, but it’s also a public holiday. We are celebrating the French national day or Bastille day as what my American friends say. I forgot to watch the grand military parade this morning on television and I can’t help but think of my late father. This was his thing – spending the 14th of July glued to the television. I think I mentioned to the husband that someday I would like to see it live in Paris, however I don’t see that happening any time soon. We are, however, going to watch the Fireworks display in Metz tonight. I’m a big kid at heart and I love fireworks. Sometimes I cry.Ssshhh …that will be our secret! I thought the husband and I could go to the Plan d’Eau in Metz, but I have a trainee who suggested watching the fireworks from Mont Saint-Quentin. The husband and I are still going back and forth on where we want to go. I can’t wait to tell you all about it in tomorrow’s post. In the meantime, let me tell you about a really simple recipe I like to prepare during the summer. This Potato and Smoked Salmon Salad is great especially when I’m sick and tired of eating grilled food, which happens a lot around here in the summer. I originally posted this recipe in my previous website, Dinner at Six Thirty, so maybe you already know it. This might happen a lot here – me posting recipes and posts from my old website.
