Scenes From My Week

We decided to get out of the city for a bit, and headed to a restaurant tucked away in the mountains. Great food–even better scenery!photo(51) photo(52)

Then I got a hankering to make almond chocolate pear muffins. Best muffins ever–I think because they’re made with almond flour instead of regular flour. They were so moist, crumbly, and delicious, I think I’ll use this recipe in future as a base for any muffins I make.

Scenes From My Week

We went shopping the other day and stumbled across a display of dishes that immediately begged to be taken home with me. I’m pretty sure they were actually calling my name. Of course, I obliged because how can one say no to such inducement?_1060528

So I baked little kale and goat cheese tarts for the sole purpose of wanting to photograph the dishes._1060532

Well, that and I needed breakfast. But mostly for the plates._1060535

Scenes From My Week

This weekend, friends of ours introduced us to a fantastic French bakery hidden away in the woods, amidst pond and palm fronds. It’s only open on Saturdays and the key to this place is to show up at 9 a.m. prompt because by 9:20 everything is gone._1060462

There were almond croissants, and chocolate croissants, and plain ones, if that’s your cup of tea. Danishes and tarts, and artisan breads of all kinds.

I would share a picture of the almond chocolate danish I ate devoured, but I gobbled it up far too quickly to snap a shot. I may or may not have had chocolate smeared on my cheek in my haste._1060467 _1060468_1060471

Needless to say, we’ll be going back for more!

My boy is 6 months old! He makes good friends with the waitstaff and chef.

This week, we discovered a new breakfast joint called The Larder Cafe. It would be an understatement to say we plan to go there again.

My breakfast started with a latte, and muesli topped with yogurt, passion fruit, kiwi, figs, strawberries, dragon fruit, and watermelon.

Then it finished with this:

Oh. My. God. I wanted to order three.

It was one of those meals that you think about long after it’s over.

Scenes From My Week

We took a trip to Chiang Dao this weekend. It’s a pretty little mountain side town, where we went last year for Toby’s birthday when I was 7 months pregnant. It was fun to go back with our (almost) 6 month old boy!
