Gourmandises

Après 10 mois d’abstinence totale en sucre, j’ai décidé de m’accorder une douceur hier... Mais quitte à manger du sucre, je ne voulais pas avaler n’importe quoi. J’ai donc entraîné Solal dans le Marais et je suis entré dans cette pâtisserie devant laquelle je m’étais déjà arrêté souvent: le pain de sucre. La vitrine est une merveille. J’avais très très très envie de goûter à leur tarte pistache framboises: un pur délice. J’ai pris une tartelette aux figues pour David et des macarons pour Solal. Un goûter de rois!
Il y a une photo aussi bien sûr.

I have been sugarless for more than 10 months. So when I decided to treat myself with some pastry yesterday, I wanted a really good one. I went to that place in the Marais: le pain de sucre. Their window is already a poem. I tried their pistachio-raspberry tart: amazing! I also took a fig tart for David and macaroons for Solal. What a wonderful snack!
Oh... And there is another picture here of course.

Beautiful.

I like the idea of going sugarless, and I don't crave sweets anyway. But, I don't go a day with no sugar, let alone 10 months. Congratulations.

It looks like you chose some great looking desserts to splurge on.

(Thanks for posting the English translation. I tried to get through the French for the first couple of sentences before I saw the English. I was not doing so well. I got "After 10 months of total abstinece from sugar, I decided... yesterday... but... to eat of sugar... I didn't want..." and I was done.)
