Aside from going to French class, at which we played a game where we had to generate sentences using passé composé, my focus was on catching up with some blogging. I also made the family a small carrot cake, something which they had never had before. Thierry remains dubious -- all this combining of vegetables with sugar unnerves him. I only made a small size because some of them remain lukewarm towards Canadian baking; however, this cake went in a flash. I was determined to try cream cheese icing as well but Myriam said it would only be for myself as everyone else preferred cake without icing. They don't know what they're missing. In the evening, after she made "Hannah's salmon recipe" (a holdover from your stay, Hannah), Myriam and I watched Les Choristes, a 2004 French movie that was popular with the public, if not with the critics.
