thursday night treat

TGIAF – Thank God It’s Almost Friday.

I’ve been very busy at work this week and I’m glad I have a relaxing evening ahead of me before heading back to work tomorrow. In my mind, Friday lunchtime is the start of the weekend and therefore Thursday night it’s time to start thinking about enjoying myself.

To start the night I spent a relaxing half hour sitting on the balcony perusing my latest book purchase from Paumes – Patisseries of Paris. Any moment now my dessert craving will kick in – tonight I am going to make a nice big bowl of vanilla ice cream and lace it with shaved Green & Blacks orange chocolate and some ginger in stem syrup. I love that I never need to share this dessert – S doesn’t quite understand my ginger and dark chocolate obsession.

What are you planning to enjoy as a sweet treat tonight? Even if you haven’t thought of something yet I am sure these pictures from my new book purchase will get you in the mood. There are pastries, macarons and tarts from Stohrer, Pierre Herme, Laduree, Angelina’s and more….

I’m really excited about returning to Paris and London for a holiday next year. Here are some of my favourite memories from last year’s trip…
