A Sneak Peek of Paris Treats

My computer has been in the shop for a while now, so my Point du Hoc post will be coming later. I have access to the photos on another computer so I will start working on it shortly. In other news, I can hardly contain my excitement!

I picked up my parents at the airport yesterday. They were back from a vacation in France: 1 week in Alsace, 1 week on the Riviera, and a few days in Paris.

Before they left they asked if there was anything I really wanted. I told them two things: soap from Marseille and Pierre HermΓ© macarons.

There is now a box of gorgeous macarons waiting to be savored on the kitchen counter. I will definitely be taking pictures and doing a post about them. For now, here are a couple of pictures of the flavor guide.

 

I think I saw one Huile d'Olive & Vanille (olive oil and vanilla) in the box. Strangely (or maybe not so strangely), I'm looking forward to tasting that one the most.

As a side note, doing this post got me thinking. It always takes me forever to get my longer posts publish, so I think I need to figure out how to do some of these smaller ones more often between the longer ones.
