Paris In a Cup, 11/22/2009

Soup may not be everyone's cup of tea, but at our bi-monthly tea outing with the girls featured a welcome surprise... At Paris In a Cup in the historic downtown Orange, the soup's the thing, a perfectly satisfying demitasse of the stuff served with the miniature sandwiches...

The signature potion is baked potato soup with the classic bacon, green onion and cheddar cheese garnish... I would have gone for that, but the soup du jour, butternut squash with apple, just sounded too festive to pass up...

Hanging out with old friends is like putting on a favorite denim jacket... You feel comfortable, yet capable of almost anything... As part of the restaurant's first seating that day, we were the loudest, most raucous group - for a while... But then other groups of ladies began to rival our hilarity, fueled by the joie de vivre that comes from tea and sugar... But most of all, the energy that comes from being with friends who have seen you through some of the most awkward, significant, painful, and just fall-down funny moments of you life - and who still love you anyway.
