Dreaming of France -- Reversed
Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.

Nicolas is the son of our good friends Michel and Danuta who live in Nantes. I met Michel and Danuta when I visited France as an au pair and Danuta was pregnant with Nicolas at the time. Whenever anyone in our family visits France, Michel and Danuta are the best tour guides ever and they serve us magnificent meals paired with fabulous wines.
I want to return the favor for Nicolas. He will be here in Columbus for two days, and I have some ideas about sights to see, but I'm really stumped about what American meal to serve our French friend.
Whether you're American or Australian or Canadian or any other nationality, what homemade meal would a French person like to eat in the United States?
