this is vendredi in paris


* a cloyingly sweet macaron au chocolat et aux noisettes from gerard malot. brace yourself for a shocking and heretical statement: i do not like macarons.

* good ole mona at the louvre

* beautiful french katrine, the 70-year-old version of me with whom i can only mime and gesture

* light earl grey for afternoon tea in the parlor room

this is my daily bread

* bread platter in Rome
