Café au lait!

 

Anthropologie has these cute café au lait bowls in different sizes and different colors.

But not for the great price I found the mini ones at Homegoods for, or the great price I found the larger ones at Bed, Bath and Beyond for…especially with the $5 off coupon that comes in their mailer.

I plan to use them for ice cream bowls…the mini ones will be perfect for one scoop…

the larger ones are big enough for a cup of soup or a small salad or two or three scoops of ice cream!

But on a recent Friday, which is usually the Hubs day off and our date day, he had a meeting. 

So, home alone, I suddenly thought, why not?

Café au lait! 

Then I went online and priced how much a trip to France really costs.

(Hey, a girl can dream can’t she?)

That is my simple pleasure this week…café au lait, (and dreaming).

  1. I still remember my cafe au lait with croissants in Paris so fondly. I wish I could live that morning over on demand. Do it do it do it. It is Soooo worth it.

  10. There is a French restaurant here that serves their cafe au laits in just the same manner ... a bowl rather than a cup with a handle. My husband has been to France on business several times but I haven't made it there yet. One day ... Best wishes to you, Tammy

  13. Love this! I would love a trip to Paris, but not sure I could ever get The Man to travel that far. In the meantime, we have our substitutes, huh?
