A few weeks ago, a wonderful patron gave me a present. It was a basket. Inside there was a mysterious box.
I opened the box and I came face to face with these lovely macaroons. It was one of the most rewarding presents I have ever received.
That box was a treasure chest full of edible jewels. I ate one. It was caramel with sea salt and it was unbelievably delicious.
I saved the rest to share with my daughter. After work, I picked up my daughter and showed her the box.
" Macaroooooooons." she screamed.
So, while driving home, we ooohed and aahed and we ate one macaroon after the other.
We ate the entire box in just a few minutes with the exception of one macaroon with red topping.
We thought it was red velvet and my daughter wanted to save it for last.
Then my daughter bit into it. " Oh, mom, it is hot."
The last macaroon was covered with chili powder. We laughed and giggled about it all the way home.
By the way, those macaroons were from a local shop called Bon Mange in Stockton at 2819 W. March Lane, Suite A8. Tel 209-910-0505.
