It seems like we are at the peak moment where the colors are so vibrant. Little dots of fire are speckled across the hillsides. We took a stroll to Chamonix and had an amazing lunch on the Brasserie de l'M terrace. Even the vulgar service couldn't detract from the deliciousness of our meal, the Salade de l'M essentially a salade de gésiers, served with the biggest slab of foie gras and a sprinkling of rose salt. The presentation was beautiful. And for dessert, since Clover was a little to antsy to stay on the terrace, we walked around Cham and stopped in for macarons. A caramel au beurre salé marcaron was a perfect ending to a divine meal. I love days like this - blissful family time, amazing food and ideal fall weather.
