Adventures in Pastries


Sarah took me on a little adventure this morning. Really, it was more of a quest. Last week we discussed the need in our life for some delicious pastries. Nate and Sarah made some excellent eclairs a couple of weeks ago, probably the best I've ever had. Since then I've been wanting some other delicious French thing to come into my life.

We went to a bakery in Creve Cour, complete with an actual French baker. The most difficult decision was which of the many fine and beautiful things they offer would come home with me. I selected the raspberry tart (pictured) and a chocolate eclair. Nick and I shared them after dinner tonight. The tart tasted as good as it looked (quite a feat) and the eclair, while not topping Nate's creation, was very delicious.

We'll have to go to the French bakery when I come to visit you in May. I think I'll have the raspberry tart. Love, Toots

I had half of the chocolate Napolean and (I'm sure I spelled it incorrectly) it was an amazing delight. I'm so glad I only had half, because there's another half waiting for me!

oh, sounds like just what every pregnant, and not pregnant, lady needs. and that's quite a compliment to nate's creation!

Funny, I have an idea for a short story that's been dancing around in my brain for years: The Quest for the Perfect Pastry. great minds think alike, i guess.
