Toulouse Revisited

Dear readers, do you remember my blog post from 2 years ago about Toulouse?  I quote, "Unfortunately this meant that I wouldn't have my nice camera for the second part of my European trip which was in France. :( This just means that I'll have to go back sometime soon with my nice camera to take better pictures, obviously. :)"

Well, guess what. I did just that! I took tons of photos to make up for not having my camera last time.

I took photos of the inside of my favorite church in Toulouse.
I took photos of my favorite street.
I took photos of my favorite boulangerie.
I also took photos while biking on the Canal du Midi. 
 
 
On the Canal du Midi, my Toulousienne friend and I ate a picnic we packed. Afterwards, we went to the nearby restaurant on the bike path for a glass of wine.  
When I was perusing the menu I just happened to inquire about dessert. Imagine that! And the most magical thing happened! I just happened to order the dessert sampler. 
And I just HAD to take photos of it for my blog. 
There was a nice blackberry cobbler, vanilla ice cream with the thinnest slivered candied almonds, custard, super chocolaty cake, an apple tart, and whip cream to put on whichever dessert I wanted to put it on. Oh, and a glass of muscat.
I was in heaven. 
The other heavenly thing about this dessert sampling? It was very reasonably priced!
 
After my nice, quick jaunt over to France, I'm ready to get back into my kitchen and bake. Fall's right around the corner which means heavier desserts will be made soon. Yay!
 
Oh, by the way, I was back in Toulouse for a coworker's wedding in the countryside nearby. I got to sing at her wedding. Isn't this one of the loveliest settings for a wedding?!
Bake well and prosper!

  5. Hi Erika,

    I like your not-working-camera excuse! :p
    Definitely a great reason to re-visit places that we like. I will try imagine that I forget to take photos in some places (especially NY) that I visited so that I can visit them again :D

    Dessert sampling? Sounds heavenly like how they look!
