des macarons


Oh ya know, just some macaroons from Strasbourg.  It was my first time every having them.  Delish.

I've been oh so busy recently--classes started at the university this week (oh yes, I've taken to saying university now. so classy.) and let's just say I can already tell I'll be kept on my toes.  But along with some of the necessary drudgery classes, I'm also taking a photography course (which I'm already super excited for), and a theatre class (in which my professor looks like Hugh Jackman and in which today we focused on relaxation which basically meant we laid on the floor for half the class. I ain't complaining.).  So that's fun.

Speaking of theatre, I have an audition tonight!  For my precious little community theatre again--it's for their fall play.  I'm so so excited--I'm auditioning with a friend with a piece from The Importance of Being Earnest.  If you could pray for it going smoothly, that would be beyond fantastic!  Have a loverly weekend, my friends.

  9. I've yet to try a macaroon... ever. Yep. That's right. I feel ashamed.

    But they do make pretty photograph subjects, though -- as you have just proved with this post! x

  10. I really need to have a macaroon! Send me one, pretty please? Preferably from Strasbourg. ;D

    Yep, I've started school too. Ugh. But my art class is super amazing, and my teacher is such a dear. I already love her, and I've only had two classes. :D

  13. Macarons! Oh my goodness! I have been yearning to make these!. They seem really complicated to bake, but I'm up for the challenge. -someday

    Oh, and did you know that there is a distinct difference between macarons and macaroons? Do a bit of research. I had no idea that they were totally different desserts when I tried to make these for my mom's birthday. Who knew?

    Good luck with the audition + the university,

    1. yeah I actually did know that! because everyone calls macarons...macaroons, incorrectly. I didn't ever realize it till I learned the word in french, haha.

  19. Ohmeohmy....those look delicious! Now I really want one. And the play...!!! "Importance of Being Earnest" is amazing! Hope you do well. :)

  20. Well, good luck with the play. Is this "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow?" If so, I'll be curious to find out who plays Ichabod Crane. Going to take an unusual chap.

    1. Yes sir, it is! Well, "The Legends of Sleepy Hollow"--legends being plural because it's a mash-up of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle. Ichabod was actually pre-cast, and he's an actor I know. He's going to be perfect.

  21. Macaroons look so cute and fun with all the different colours they come in and the mini size. Though I don't really like them that much. Anyways, nice photos of them! :) And I'll pray that your audition goes well!

  25. Macarons are so. darn. cute. I don't even like the way they taste but I'm dying to make some just because they are so incredibly adorably CUTE! Which probably makes me some sorta psychological case but I am a-ok with that :)

Sweet comments are the best thing since sliced bread. Unkind comments are the worst thing since hamsters.

But really. Comments make me happy.
