Word to the wise: If any of you are thinking about going to buy a non-chocolate pastry... consult me first. I know them all.
I went a little crazy in Paris. I just couldn't help myself. In order to laugh at myself, and the ridiculous amount of pastries I ate, I wrote them all down:
2 crepes (sugar, banana, whip cream)
1 coffee eclair
1 coffee/maple religieuse
1 strawberry tart
3 ice cream trips
Yes, I was only there for 5 days. Yes, I am a little embarrassed. And yes, most of my pictures from Paris have something to do with food. But hey, I walked more on Wednesday alone than I think I did all summer! Pastries are part of the Paris experience, and I took full advantage.
This is one of my favorite pictures of the trip... the whip cream smear on the cheek captures just how eagerly we ate our treats. In Natalie's defense, I had the exact same whip cream smear while taking this picture.
I have to give a shout out to ham and cheese. It is one of my favorite combinations and no one does it like Parisians do! love my croque monsieurs and cheesy baguettes!
More to come!
