Manic for Macarons!!!!!!!!!!!!
Macarons.... NOT macaroons. Totally different.
A coworker of mine just got back from France where she fell in love with a little cake like pastry called a macaron. She has raved about them constantly since getting back in early January.
Well about a week ago she found a little store in Beverly Hills and picked up a few for herself (ya thanks for thinking of me). During that visit she saw a sign that stated they were "naturally gluten free". She told me this and I immediately commenced research for a macaron store in Riverside county. Of course, I did not find one. I did, however, find a store by the name of Napoleon's Macarons (http://www.napoleonsmacarons.com/) that overnights a package of 24,36 or 48. My other coworker (my secretary) and I were licking our chops looking at all the tasty flavor options and planning when we would purchase our first box.
Today a box came by delivery addressed to me. My secretary had purchased a box for me!!!! Yes I realize I have the best secretary in the whole wide world.
I am glad I remembered to take a photo before I gobbled them all up. Its a box of 24 with 4 each of 6 different flavors. I have eaten 5 so far. It's hard to hold back. They are little tasty bites of heaven!
I highly recommend this product (and Napoleon's in particular) to anyone interested. I shall immediately be forwarding a link to Tim and inform him he may surprise me with a box any time his little heart desires (hehe).
Excuse me, I have 19 more to go. Okay, fine, I'll share with my coworkers.
