Quick !!

My friend and I planned this tea time for a while. We, both, have busy husbands and the only common date was today. As I was so disorganized the whole week, it just slipped through my mind.
In 40 minutes, I made 2 tartes Tatin. It's an upside-down pastry with caramelized apple and butter on a pâte feuilletée + with a vanilla ice scream scoop. So quick, so yummy!

Quality time with DH

My DH and I went shopping and sightseeing around Paris. We decided to stop and tried Café Pouchkine on Haussman in 9e. 
Nice decor with a few chairs, if you want to sit down and enjoy a quiet moment, I suggest you try the other one on 3e or 6e where for the latter, you can have lunch. I advise you to make a reservation though. It is always crowded. 
As the price is concerned, it is average for this type of patisserie (from 6-8euros a piece)
I usually don't like mass production but I must admit it is nicely done and the staff is really client-orientated. In one word, cafe Pouchkine = worth the try.

We had a Diadema (crumble, lemon/jasmin cream) and a classic mille feuille (very "gourmand" but the biscuit was to caramelized to my taste overpowered the vanilla cream).
