Rain out

What a weekend. I thought the rain would stop long enough for me to get in a quick walk yesterday, but no. With the way I eat, I need my exercise and I need it daily. I don’t have indoor exercise equipment nor do I belong to a gym so I rely heavily on sidewalks. I’m going to brave the outdoors today rain or shine. What’s a little rain? My waistline will thank me for it.

Did I mention that I’ve been nibbling on palmiers for a day and a half? I have always wanted to recreate La Madeleine’s version and I did so yesterday morning at 5:00AM!! I found an all butter puff pastry at Central Market and did my due diligence to replicate one of my favorite breakfast pastries. Voila! All you need is a good quality puff pastry (all butter), granulated sugar, salt and parchment paper. In addition to the sweet style I also made a savory version with Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. I couldn’t believe how easy this was to make. All this time I thought I was at the mercy of a French bakery.

My sweet tooth is in full effect this weekend. I’m hankering for rich dark chocolate cupcakes smothered in chocolate ganache. Off to the grocery.

  1. This rain is crazy. Hope it calms down enough today for your walk! Chloe refuses to potty outside in the rain, so it’s getting a little old.

  2. Duff loves water in all forms. The rain seems to make the outdoors all that more appealing.
