Who Cut The Fromage?


Leave it to the French to "cut the cheese" using their most recognized landmark - the Eiffel Tower. I saw these cheese graters at the Galeries Lafayette over the weekend. I think they'd make fun gifts for my friends back home. Does anybody want La Mom to send you one?

============================================
Dear Bloggy Friends,

La Mom would like to thank those who take the time out of their busy schedules to read my blog, comment, and send me emails (I wish I could do the same for you all, but Big Cheese is un petit peu annoyed that my evenings are spent blogging and not with him.)

A big merci to one reader, Mike D., who requested more Paris pictures on the blog. La Mom agrees that pictures of beautiful Paris are always a good thing. I'm sure you agree that a picture of moi, the French Fries, my apartment, my neighborhood, or my friends is a bad thing. Why? Because it'll give away who I am and once my cover is blown who's gonna give you the Paris dish?

So, more Paris pictures to come! Any other requests out there?

Kisses on both cheeks,
La Mom

That grater is so cute I could squeal, if I allowed myself such undignified behavior. Are they expensive?

I'm always happy to look at pictures of Paris, but my main request is that you don't change anything else. This blog is one of my favorite treats.

Bisous!

Those cheese graters are simply too cute! I love your reader request for more photos of the real Paris. Some of us can only dream you know!

I love the idea of more Paris pics AND I love the Eiffel Tower cheese grater! I'll take one, but only if you can Be-Dazzle the shit out of it!

I definitely would have bought one of those cheese graters if they had had them when I was in Paris!

love these. I've seen them before and forget what cool gifts they make.

Oh La Mom, they are so fab! I'd die to have one of those!!! If it's not too much hassle for you would you be so kind to send me your email address (my email address is agramolasands6@hotmail.com) and let me know how much it cost and the postage to the UK so I can send you some funds through paypal? I know you're ever so busy so if it's too much for you, pls just tell me so. Thanks. Ciao. Antonella

I think when they made those graters, they had us Americans in mind! Of course we would love those things!

SuZ said...

Ooooohhhh.

See, I'm a boring American that has never been to Paris. So I see anything with the Eiffel Tower and just sigh wistfully while thinking "ONE DAY!"

:)

Is that too much?

And of course I'd love to see pictures!! Bring them on!!

Anytime you can take us to Paris with your pics is a welcome diversion. Can't say I blame the big cheese for wanting you all to himself at night! Mine too! Hopefully there's time to do it all cause we love you too!

My hubby says the same thing but he has his own addictions (games).

I visited Paris for the first time in November, and I also spied these cheese graters. I considered gifting a couple...but thought they might be tacky and I stuck with the traditional scarf. Now that I know you approve, next time I will get some!

You're great just the way you are! Cheese graters and dog poo galore.

Kelli said...

I absolutely must have one of these graters! TOO cute and plus I have an Eiffel Tower collection.
Do you remember the price?
I can pick it up from you next month while in Paris! :)
Bisous
