During our Franco-Belgo-Dutch travels, His Lordship and I took a day trip out to Versailles.
While there, I told him of a small crêperie located near the palace that boasted some of my dad and I’s favorite crêpes as well as my mom’s favorite salad. (Seriously, ask her about it. She’ll tell you.)
Completely famished (and borderline hangry), we hit up Le Carré aux Crêpes. Chris was pleasantly surprised that the menu offered a vast variety of savory crêpes.
And they were delicious.
So on this #SandwichSunday, let’s celebrate as the French do.
