French word of the day: pilons

Def: drumsticks

This we learned after dad ordered une salade poulet that came was delivered with chunky drumsticks. It was the one word in the description that we didn’t know until we looked up after dinner.

Another French word: Sablé

Def: sand

But when it comes to divine French cooking, it’s a crispy, crumbly cookie. Either of the savory variety, like in the goat cheese, cherry tomato and argula tart Lo and I both had as an appetizer at Café Panique, or a sweet sablé, like the chocolate mousse deliciousness that dad had for dessert.

Tonight, new vocab through food, I’m sure!
