During the school holidays our neighbour and his son decided to make a replica of the Eiffel Tower.
The neighbourhood kids had fun joining in and adding a piece in here and there....
July 14th , Bastille Day, came around and our wonderful neighbourhood decided to have a celebration and enjoy some French cuisine together....
French loaves and various cheeses with French Onion soup were the order of the day.
I made the soup using a simple recipe that was delicious. The soup should be served with toast and melted cheese on top, but we enjoyed it with fresh French loaf and cheese instead.
We took the opportunity to learn more about Bastille Day and the French Revolution, and enjoyed watching a spectacular on-line clip of the Bastille Day Fireworks.
My youngest enjoyed cooking us a delicious French chicken and sausage cassoulet.
It was great to learn a little more about France and enjoy their fabulous food!
