Mellow Yellow Monday

I think you could call these Paris pastries too much of a good thing.   
So I turned away and saved my calories for some lovely little 
macarons.  Oh, and a fabulous tarte tatin with crème fraiche.  
Wait—there was also ice cream from Berthillon. 
Hmmm . . . suddenly I'm not feeling so virtuous anymore.

To see more Mellow Yellow, go here:


  1. Hmmm, I would call it: - Just fighting the diminishing light of autumn :-)
    And thanks a lot for sharing your Meryl story. How I would have loved that!

  2. It's fine, Alexa ~ I skipped reading from 'macarons' and resumed at 'virtuous' so your tarte tatin, crème fraiche and Berthillon did not count. {This scene is at least a few rosettes of cream away from too much.}

  3. It looks like someone has been eating one of those cakes without a bib.

    Don’t worry about the extra calories. There is an easy way to burn them off.

  4. I don't know if I can resist these food. They all look so good I am even craving it now hehe.
