Saturday Sweet Day



I spent part of the morning in Hayes Valley. We had lunch at Frjtz's and then had dessert at miette and paulette. We got some great caramels at meitte's and some malt balls of course. 
We also bought a couple macarons at miette so we could compare them to paulette's macarons. 

The larger lumpier brown (chocolate ones) are from miette. They were way too chewy. The beautiful smooth ones are from Paulette. They were much tastier. Although as much as I love the aesthetic of macarons they always seem like they would taste better than they actually do. They are tasty, but I just always expect more. 
I also got a new pair of shoes in Hayes Valley but I will post about those later.

I always do the same thing when it comes to things like that. I always expect them to taste so good only to remember that they aren't that great lol
Glad to hear you had a good day. :)

I can just imagine the fantastic shoes! And, I am dying to try those adorable French macaroons. They almost look too pretty to eat...

Andrea said...

I agree... those macaroons are so pretty, but to eat them? Meh...

I've never seen a macaroon like that before. The ones I'm used to are coconut, sometimes dipped in chocolate.

Also, I must say this post is incredibly tempting, as I've sworn off candy for 30 days so I can get back into shape faster. =P
