Life has been particularly difficult these past months. Past demons have been resurfacing, car problems, having only 1 car following our accident, SO hurting herself, getting ill, missing deadline for my certification, changes at work.... Name it - I got it. I used to smile about it, joked about it even. How can I be so unlucky??? I used to say. But it's been 6-7 months and it's not funny anymore. I am in a vicious cycle and truthfully I don't know how to get out of it. I like to think of myself as a positive person, but this time it's hard. :'(
Anyways, enough of that. I can't give up. And most importantly, I won't give up.
Instead, let me talk to you about the French pastry shop, Maison Fresson. I think that anyone who lives in Metz knows Maison Fresson. It might not be everyone's favorite as I know there are other excellent pastry shops nearby. But I have noticed how long the queue is every time I pass by.
After our Korean meal in the restaurant Arita (click here for the post), my husband and I decided to drop by Maison Fresson to pick up desserts. Finally!!! It's been so long since I wanted to try one of their pastries. I've always told myself that I didn't need the extra calories, but with my husband with me, that little thought went out the window.
On our way to Maison Fresson from Arita, we passed by the restaurant, l'Aloyau. A family restaurant which I believe specializes in good meat. In fact, I think the same family owns a butchery nearby.
So after a couple of steps, we found ourselves in Maison Fresson and having to make the difficult choice of choosing one dessert each. It's tough when everything looks so damn good!
While paying we were behind an older woman whose total bill was 485 Euros. MR was persuaded that there was a mistake and it was really 48.50 Euros (which he thought was already pretty expensive). But no, there was no mistake. It really was 485 Euros. Unlike us, she must have bought everything. Lucky woman.
We finally settled on a Paris-Metz and a Paris-Brest.
Paris-Brest: French dessert made of Choux pastry and a praline flavored cream.
Paris-Metz: French dessert made of macaron, cream made from Arlequin candy, and fresh raspberries.
MR had to work in the afternoon, so we took some time in the car to enjoy our desserts together. That's how it is with us. Nothing fancy needed for us to have a good time. Just MR and I.
And yes, the desserts from Maison Fresson are as delicious as they look. Perhaps even more, if that's in any way possible! :)
