#WIAW - Dinan

It is WIAW over at Peas and Crayons and I am taking advantage by posting a whole bunch of yumminess from my French Vacation. If you are here looking for tips about how to eat clean on your vacation, then unfortunately you came to wrong place. That is not what this vacation was about.

I said before I left that my goal was to put on 5 Happiness lbs.

What are happiness lbs?
Happiness lbs are pounds that are gained during a state of complete happiness and generally result from eating generous quantities of bread, cheese, and French pastries. They may also be gained by drinking many glasses of wine, and perhaps even some champagne for good measure.

I gave my 5 lbs goal a good shot, but alas did not quite succeed. I blame all the walking we did while we were sightseeing. I did eat some amazing, epic, delicious meals. So I am going to chronicle a few of my favourites over the next few weeks.

We had a couple delicious meals while we were in Dinan. And we also utilized the farmer's market for some lighter lunches as well. This was our last meal in Dinan

We ate at Chez la Mere Pourcel. It was located right in one of Dinan's main squares. The views were perfect and service was fantastic. I started with Escargot and Kir Royale. I opted for Moule Frites as my main paired with a local chardonnay. And had these delicious hybrid creme puff/ice cream balls for dessert.

Restaurant Recommendations...
L'Atelier Gourmand - Great food, Great Service, and a really nice screened in patio right on the water.
Creperie du Roy - Best Crepes
Creperie Le Connetable - Best Cider

Are you drooling yet?! I am!
