After seeing numerous blogs about macaroons, I decided I needed to try some. They look so pretty and so delicious, but where to get them? I saw a posting about them on Facebook by a friend, so I asked her where to get them, “from me” she answered. Great. I’ll order a dozen. Today was the day I picked them up. Four flavours; chocolate, dulce de leche, raspberry and lemon, and lime and coconut.
I looked in the box. “That’s more than a dozen.” Apparently Becky and I were getting some special treatment, and ended up with 2 dozen. Many thanks, Jen. I happily gave away the extra macaroons to neighbours. Sharing the loot, so to speak.
It was a bit of a special occasion; we got the news yesterday that the condo bathroom renovation will be finished on Monday! Yeah, so I decided to make an afternoon tea to celebrate.
A mountain of sandwiches; different fillings and different breads.
Pickled gherkins, pickled onions, lots of tea, and
macaroons. The most scrumptious dessert invented. I have never eaten one before today, but I was hooked, with one bite. slightly crunchy, light as air, and taste-bud explosions. I only had two, but could eat a dozen of the lime coconuts by myself. Becky actually managed to eat eight of various flavours! It’s a good job we had extra.
I love afternoon tea; I love little bites of things, lots of flavours, slowly munching and talking with friends and family. Apparently, Becky likes macaroons. I’ll be putting another order in soon.
