One of the really, really nice things about having the newest baby on the block is that people bring food. And, even now, more than six weeks in, we're still getting showered with kindness from family and friends.
Mari was born, our neighbor casually asked, out of the blue, "Do you like almond croissants?" Do I like almond croissants? Um, yes please. And so, not once, but twice, he's brought us these delicious, most perfect almond croissants from a little place called The French Gourmet in San Diego.
Croissants are my guiltiest pleasure. When I was young, my mom and I would strategically plan our mall trips around a stop-in at Vie de France, usually for an apple or cherry croissant. Now that my tastes have grown up, I am loving anything almond-filled.
My neighbor told us that these croissants are actually twice-baked, and let me tell you: they are by far the best croissants - chocolate, apple, raspberry with cream cheese - or otherwise - that I have ever tasted. In my life. So much for attempting to not eat like I'm still pregnant.
San Dieg'ites: do tell if you know what I'm talking about. For the rest of us: must plan visit soon.
