Tonight the freshman reserved West of Paris, a fancy French restaurant that occupies a corner of the NSA school building. About 45 of the 60 1st year classmate attended. One of the girls who I have gotten to know offered to lend me one of her formal dresses for the night--and of course I jumped on the offer!
the dress =)
my handsom date
everyone had a personalized place card
the menu- I actually have a copy of this to scrapbook!
Salade de fromage de chévre frais aux croútons á l'ail (mixed greens topped with fresh goat cheese and garlic croutons)
Canard á la Marseillaise; flambé in Marseillais Pastis liquor (roasted duckling filet served with an orange reduction) -yes I went for something other than chicken, and I liked it! I also ate a WHOLE shrimp at the beginning of the meal.
a light raspberry mouse with whipped cream and a delicious mint leaf (the palate cleanser)
Chocolate Mint Créme Brúlée
lots of talking and laughing and picture taking between courses
most of the freshmen girls and me
