Food! Finally!

Nina here....first blog post from me!

So we've definitely gotten off to a rough start in the food dept by my standards....it's very difficult to get away from the touristy places in France. For me the trip finally started today when we had some of the best food yet...this is the stuff I've been dreaming of! We spent the day in Nancy, a small town close to where we have been staying. We visited the local covered market, filled with many beautiful and amazing food stalls filled with charcuterie to cheese to fish and produce. We bought ourselves a baguette, some Brie du meaux, butter and prosciutto and had ourselves a regular French picnic in the park! Delish. Then coffees in the square....felt very French. And then we finished the day with a really amazing dinner in a beautiful Brasserie called Excelsior. The food was perfect and everything about it made me smile. Here are some photos from today and yesterday (driving the Rue Du Vin in Alsace)....
