I was just thinking of making some Madeleines… maybe some savory ones.
Oooh, they are so delicious!
I have the baking pan…just have to get myself into the kitchen and slap on my apron!
Madeleines…the cookie that I have to be so careful of NOT over baking…
I check the oven every minute!
Looks like it will be a great year for the participants!
Love this challenge so much!
Plenty of books ready….but I really should get back into the “French Kitchen”
Groceries have gotten SO expensive here (The Netherlands)…so I must choose dishes I can make and freeze for future meals! But, boy those Breton Biscuits with Lemon Curd (see my 2018 archive list…) do look good! Thanks for you comment and I’ll be visiting all your posts!
I too love your Paris in July image, as it conjures up so many thoughts, ideas and questions. What is on this woman’s mind? where did she come from? and what is her story? This represents an ordinary moment in every women’s day – when we day dream… but is le femme Parisienne un peut different?
We are all
…”belle femme tenant un verre de vin rouge.” 😉
I look forward to seeing where you go this month, and I’m delighted that I can accompany you.
Love this challenge…it gets me back into French books!
