~dîner dehors~

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 =)


me


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

It looks like a spectacular evening. You look lovely in that dress. How nice of Kathleen to share. Good for you stretching like that to eat both shrimp and duck. I'm sure it was an evening memories are made of. Thanks for sharing a bit of it with us.
