French Macarons

I don't remember when I started craving for them, but did spend a while searching for good recipes for French macarons. First of all, American 'macaroons" are quite different besides the extra 'o'; do not mistake the two. I haven't tasted [coconut] macaroons before but people who have had the real deal swear by macarons.

Several months ago, I was out on a search for Go Go Curry (as recommended by Leena) and due to a lack of navigational skill, got lost. While I was running down 36th st, I saw a nice big sign: MacarOn.

(insert epic macro)

My brains exploded

I walked inside and lo and behold, a big big BIG array of macarons awaited me. They're heavenly and I do recommed you to RUN to this place right now. Of course, if you can spare $1.75 for a cookie, go for it. There are some pretty long lines sometimes but I haven't ever come across anything longer than 3 people. Being a pretty cheap and jobless student, It's kinda *cough*hard for me to shell out $2.50 or even $5 for one of those macarons at La Maison du Chocolat plus what better than to grab a big juicy macaron(s) after a day's worth of shopping at Herald Square. (Their sandwiches have good reviews too :D)

Nevertheless, it's a convenient location tucked away safely away from tourists (haw haw haw) and if anything, try a macaron. There are samples on plate sometimes so if you're lucky you get to try a piece before you buy any.

Oh sh*t I'm older now

That's right people, I'm 15 years old :D
For now it feels *ahem* good to turn older but I'll probably be thinking a little differently in a few years or so. (oh wait I'm not that old right now anyways)

For people who gave me birthday wishes and presents and whatnot, why THANK YOU
It was the best birthday I've ever spent even though I had to hold my party the day before school started.

For those who have known me before HS... I've changed a lot haven't I? :D
I'm truly proud of myself.

*must work harder in school now!*
