We had fish & chips with a front row view of the action!
And Kate was so sweet to stop by after, especially on her wedding day. First celebrity sighting in Paris.
Speaking of celebrity sightings, Maygan & Kyle actually DID see Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Phillippe, & Amanda Seyfried at dinner last month at one of our favorite spots, Cafe Constant:
And Kyle's FACE is on the tabloid websites!! Kyle is wearing the green shirt on the right!
Actually, I was supposed to go with them to dinner that night but decided I'd wait and join them the next night, ugh!! I'm sure Ryan will call any day now, so no big deal.
We always laugh because one of the tabloid photos taken from this exact angle shows Kyle's whole face and he's mid-chew, so he has this big lump in his cheek like a chipmunk. It's amazing.
We frequently talk about how hard it is for us to be in public since we're all celebrities now. What with me and Maygan on House Hunters and Kyle in the tabloids...It's just great to be with people who understand the hardships of fame.
Ok real life...After the Royal Wedding lunch, I took a baking class (Yay!!!), where I learned to make croissants...
pain au chocolat...
pastry cream & pain aux raisins (a breakfast pastry wrapped up cinnamon roll style w/ pastry cream & raisins)...
focaccia bread w/ cheese & olives...
and some other kind of amazing dessert that I don't know the name of, a sugared pastry crust filled with Cognac-flambeed buttered apples & walnuts. Sh-yah.
It was super fun, I learned so much, went into a pastry coma, took two full bags home of pastries & pastry dough, AND the class was complimentary!!
When House Hunters was here filming, they wanted to show me doing other things in Paris, so they set it up for me to be in this cooking class. But then I had to leave early to finish shooting (hardships of fame!), so I was--naturally--devastated. And the owner said I could come back another day so I could take a full class, how nice is that?? It was so much fun, and we made so many delicious things!
If you're planning a trip to Paris at any point, I highly recommend it. They're #1 on TripAdvisor right now. http://cooknwithclass.com/
So now I know how much butter goes into these babies. You would think that would deter me. Huh.
Not in the slightest.
