It happens at least once a year, that big snow fall that keeps you inside and home from school or work. I used to love them as a kid! It is a bit harder when you are an adult and I think a majority of us are still working from home so we don’t get snow days like we used to. If you get the opportunity of this year’s snow or in the future, here are some fun ways to Frenchify your snow day. From movies, to shows, to recipes to cook that will transport you to France.

This is a perfect time to have Angelina Hot Chocolate. You can also make Chocolat chaud on your stovetop.

Watch Lupin

If you haven’t watched Lupin, it is a fun thing to watch on Netflix while you are keeping warm inside. It is 5 episodes so a good afternoon snuggled under a warm blanket. If you have watched Lupin, try Call My Agent!

Read a Book to Transport you to France

Read a good book that transports you to Paris. Here are a few ideas.

Self Care with a Bath and Candle

Roll out your yoga mat for an online class. Peloton has 2 months free on their app and you can do so many on-demand classes.

French Onion Soup

One of my favorite things to make on a cold winter day. You probably have most of the things you need in your pantry and fridge. It is so easy and delicious. This recipe uses chicken stock instead of beef which I prefer.

Mont d’Or

I have not tried Mont d’Or personally, but I have always wanted to. David Lebovitz describes it here. You can buy it at Murray’s cheese here.

Dress Warm

Don’t forget to dress warmly in a hat, gloves, and scarf.

Most importantly, enjoy your day!
