Fromage et Le Vin

Reading books about cheese making and wine making can inspire you.

Start with a couple of loaves of fresh, crusty bread.

Bring home Kroger's best French (ish) cheese selections.

Sadly, Kroger has no French (ish) wine.
A box of California chardonnay will have to suffice.

And...voilĂ ! Croque Monsieur (ish)!

  8. Looks delicious. We definitely got hooked on wine, bread, and cheese in France and now we're scrambling to figure out how to replicate the experience in St. Louis.

  24. I had a croque madam last week (with egg on top) when it was cool in Paris, hopefully from now on it will be a bit too warm for them this visit, but they certainly are delicious. I must take time to read that cheese book soon too.

  25. Bet the cheese you are eating is French versus mine merely French-ish.
