Paris Style Macaroons

There is this blog I have been following for years and years. Actually, when I first went on Ebay to start selling things, it was a dream of mine to take Stacey and go to Paris...so I was following this wonderful blog called Paris Breakfast http://parisbreakfasts.blogspot.com/. She is also a watercolor artist. She paints these beautiful yummy looking macaroons. She makes them look soooo good.
So...todays trip to Portland...lookie at what I found...so I had to purchase some...you know,
to take photos so I can try to paint them...yes, of course, thats why I had to purchase them (as I told my husband.lol)
Look how wonderful this set up is...ready to paint. yep...to paint, Oh, I've taken the photos, I guess I don't really need the macaroons any more....right?! So it was time to taste one...
oh! Which one do I choose??? The PINK one...Yellow? White...oh! CHOCOLATE!
So, my tea was still hot, so a little treat was in order. I pulled them apart like an Oreo ( I dont know how to eat them!!) The filling was good (you know how you always need to taste the filling!!) I sunk my teeth (being very carful of my sore tooth) into this morsel...hhemm...
another bit...yuck!! really! NOT GOOD LOL!! and they cost a small fortune. I guess I'll have to wait until I get to Paris to find a good one!!

I thought I would try a "brush" around the edge and I used my new Pen to write Tea Time
What would my blog be, without a little update about Peighton,
first let me say, this is like 3rd hand, and through texting, so it may not
be absolutely correct.
Her white blood cells are pretty much non existent
they are doing more blood work, if the red blood cells are high
she has an infection, if they count is really low she might be
bleeding internally. Shes had two surgeries to install a
feeding tube into her little tummy.
She turned 6 mo. on Jan. 1
I do want to send out a Thank you to all that
have sent your well wishes and prayers for the little sweetie.

Prayers continue for little Peighton...sweet little angel!

Gotta say..Macaroons are so pretty but I never enjoyed the taste myself! I guess that means zero calories?

There are macaroons and then there are M.a.c.a.r.o.o.n.s! Obviously these were just macaroons. Pretty to look at but good to know you don't want to spend more money just to eat them. Can't wait to see what you do with the concept of painting them! ~Adrienne~

Little Miss,

If her white count is elevated she might have an infection. If it's very low her immune system isn't working. Low red count means dehydration (low blood volume)or hemorrhaging
