thank you

at some point i introduced my friend, marg, and she in turn her daughter, megan, to a delightful site called parisbreakfasts (you're welcome to visit, too.) carol gillot does an amazing job of capturing small moments from daily life in paris in which macarons play a big part.
megan (bless her heart) was recently in las vegas when she ran across a bakery with a display of macarons!! and she (very thoughtfully) brought some back for us to enjoy.
when delivered to my house did I immediately think of my camera and the amazing photo op i'd just been handed???
mais, non!! i simply ate it.

it wasn't until the last bite was 1/2 way to my mouth that i thought i should chronicle the

appearance of a real live macaron in my humble abode, giving megan credit for her thoughtful generosity. sad but true.
it was delish!! thanks, megan!!

Confession: I have never had a macaroon. And these look so, so very sweet and lovely that for the first time I really, really feel like I've been missing out!

What a sweet, thoughtful gift (in an adorable box)!

i'd never had one either - just seen the pictures on parisbreakfasts and waited my turn in line!!
i have been looking for recipes and found one at martha stewart that looks do-able. i'll post about the attempt (one of these days)
