Ruminating on things eaten in Paris last year

Maybe it's that my sister in-law is headed to Paris right now. Or that I've recently joined the fan club for those normal French pharmacy beauty products that just seem so much better every time I use them, like this dry shampoo and this really basic moisturizer. It's probably also that I was in Paris a year ago crazily enough, and being stuck inside during a snow day had me wistfully thinking about that late winter trip.  If you're looking for even more inspiration, Cup of Joe's recent city guide of Paris has me thinking France is always a good idea, whatever the weather. Of particular note to me, even a year later:

baguettes, always good, with butter even better gastro pub Les Deux Cigales , very delicious mint tea at the Grand Mosque of Paris worth the marauding pigeons  all pain au chocolat forever!
