My Idea of Saturday morning Perfection

Every Saturday morning, I opt out of a home-made breakfast and instead visited the local patisserie for a pastry and cup of coffee. It is something I've done for the past two years and I always look forward to it because it gives me a chance to relax after the hectic week.

One morning a short while back, I was on my way to what I call my Heaven on Earth when I spotted an adorable girl not a day over 5 nibbling on a delicate pink macaroon with an orange pastry cream filling as she was being led out of the store by her mother. I had never seen a macaroon look so pretty & mouthwatering in my entire life! So I went into the shop, took my usual seat and made sure to order for myself one of those rose and orange-blossom macaroons sitting behind the glass cabinet. It was undeniably the most delicious treat I had ever tasted in my entire life and also the moment my adoration of French pastries began.

On my best friend's trip to Paris last year, she was lucky enough to visit the French patisserie Laduree at the Champs Elysees and taste a selection of their famous creations. I was so envious! But to my delight she brought this home for me!! I can't wait to go there myself one day :) For now, I order 3 macaroons as a treat to start my weekend off beautifully. Today, I picked the rose & orange-blossom (as always!), coconut and hazelnut praline. It was yummy! xx
