In a previous post I told you about my Downton Abbey Page-A-Day calendar. Since then I’ve been thoroughly enjoying all the Downton photos, quotes and 1920s trivia.
My favorites are quotes from the Dowager Countess. I particularly like this one from the new season (not the calendar) “A lack of compassion can be as vulgar as an excess of tears”. Mary really deserved that piece of advice. ☺
After seeing todays photo of the lovely pink macarons, I’m more determined than ever to find a baker in my area that makes these delicious treats.
The calendar page today stated “Traditional French macarons are made from almond flour and whipped egg whites—plus an array of delicious flavorings like rose and coconut. The delicate treats were created in the town of Nancy.”
