Lunch: The Late Springtime Pick-Me-Up

Something about this combination reminds me of what Springtime is supposed to be about, which is all things fresh and pretty. (At least in the world of greeting cards.)

I guess they are all sort of fresh and pretty:

sprouts = By definition, newly sprouted
fiocchi = The puckering, dainty, pocket-like shape is pretty dang cute
arugula = A vibrant and zesty leafy green, with a slim-yet-curvy shape, if I ever saw one


Breakfast: Un Croissant Pour la Mademoiselle

photo(2)Croissants are quite possibly my favorite pastry, and from the looks of the case at Dean & Deluca in the New York Times building, it appears I’m not the only one! By 9:30 a.m. the entire row of plain croissants was nearly wiped out.
