cupcakes for the after-dad’s-memorial-service family dinner—some were even
gluten-free and vegan for Alison—and
when I picked them up I grabbed a bag of macaroons, which the baker comped me
because she’d gotten our order wrong, and I love them so much more than
cupcakes and ate almost all of them myself.
Good for you! I hope they go well with your blood type.ReplyDelete
I love macaroons too. Probably my favorite sweet.ReplyDelete
Okay. I'm going to ask. Were they coconut-y macaroons, or meringue-ish macarons?ReplyDelete
And if there was ever a day you deserved to eat a whole bag of anything, it would have been the day of your dad's memorial service.
Oh, and I love a really good macaron, too, although I didn't realize it until I was in Paris. They don't look like they'd taste good (and I've since had some that didn't). In Paris, they were sublime.Delete
I had to ask, because many people (perpetuated on ... shock, horror ... The Great British Bake Off) pronounce the meringuey ones as macaroon.Delete
Mali, have you seen the Macron/Macaron/Macaroon/Macaroni meme? (Some add Marconi, Mickey Rooney.)Delete
Macarons can be wonderful, but I'm a sucker for the heavier coconut macaroons. Especially if dipped in dark chocolate. (And I agree with Mali -- you deserved the treat.)ReplyDelete
