The Start of the Olympics

I love the Olympics.  I got my DVR the first year that I was working during the Olympics because I didn’t want to miss a moment.  I’m always nervous for my favorites, I’m excited when I see them win and I cry along with all of the stories.  My favorite sports to watch in the summer Olympics are swimming, gymnastics and diving.

Two friends came over to watch the opening ceremony this year.  Iloye and I toasted with a homemade Chocolate Egg Cream before the ceremony.
I love the Parade of Nations.  I love seeing all of the countries dressed up and cheering for countries that stand out to me because I’ve visited them or I know people from them.  Towards the end of the PON, we pulled out some cheesecake.

I know one of the Canadian swimmers from three semesters of French at college.  It was a lot of fun to watch her swim and cheer her on this weekend!

I made Blueberry Clafoutis this weekend.  I made it once a few years ago for French class, but haven’t made it since.  This time I used a recipe that called for less sugar and it was so much better.  I’ll definitely make this again.
