Damn the French! (a love letter)


Friday, February 08, 2013

I'm shaking my fist at the French right now.

I tried brioche for the first time ever two days ago. Word to the wise: don't ever proclaim to start your diet and then try some delicious legendary French delicacy the very next day.

I was walking in Whole Foods and saw it. Actually, three of us spotted it at the same time and stood in front of it. One woman asked me, "Is it good?" I said, "I have absolutely no idea."

After fantasizing about it all day at work, I picked up a bag of the rolls on my walk back to the bus.

SIGH.

Well, I pretty much tore that package up, and then entered it all into my Spark journal. I covered 75% of my calories just from breakfast. (SO happy I didn't get the loaf!!!)

There's one roll left. I will eat it tomorrow and then say goodbye to brioche forever. Or until I go to Paris.

Haven't tried brioche? DON'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOL! I was going to suggest that. Only eat brioche in France; that way it will be too expensive to indulge in. And be forewarned; a trip to France (or Italy) will require getting back on track when you get home. Between the breads, cheeses, wines and pastries...... OMG!
