Macaron Wednesday...

The farmers markets in Brisbane Square every Wednesday is probably one of my most favourite days. The vibe is terrific; so many stalls and so many people, fresh flowers and most importantly - food. So much food. My favourite of these are the macarons at 'Monsieur Macaron'.

Actual frenchmen and actual macarons that are, simply put, divinity. The macarons melt in your mouth and are the perfect size for a guilt-free treat... Unless you're like me and have at least 2 or 3...
Sometimes I get lucky and don't even have to venture outside; Lewis frequently sees a perfect opportunity to add to his 'most amazing fiance ever' status and brings a selection into work. This being said, I do love the atmosphere of the markets and love meeting him there, seeing as he works in the building right beside it.

I took these snaps at work on a lunch break after braving the wind and cold to acquire my coveted macarons. The purple is my all time favourite - lavender. White chocolate ganache and actual lavender flavouring ("Heaven... I'm in heaven...."). The green is ginger - seriously terrific yet subtle, and the pink is raspberry jam - you can't go wrong with this one.

You can find them at Monsieur Macaron, or meet me at the Farmers Markets on Wednesday!
