Memories of my 'Hood

My favorite blogger - David Lebovitz - just wrote a post about my neighborhood market, Barbes.  I have to iron my uniform and get ready for work, but please read it, and think of me hunting down the cheapest fingerling potatoes and munching on a hot 'brique' after my shopping is done.  I miss Paris.

David Lebovitz's Blog

His recipes are great, I have been making the salted caramels lately, and they are highly appreciated by everyone at Meadow Lane.  His Paris memoir is worth a read, especially before a trip to France.

Mon nouveau chapeau. (my new hat)

Of course i got chocolate on my new work hat before i even put it on my head. also i forget i have it on and bump into shelves with it. i think it is very sexy. especially with my sweaty head inside. dont be jealous -- I just made chocolate covered grapes.
