Almond croissants may save the world

As you age, you learn to manage your emotions more and more.  Us females, particularly so.

When you have kids’ demands to meet, job to hold down, a household to run, and a lot of giving to do, your emotions – at least those emotions that involve wanting to have a rant then a good cry – need to stay packed away in that old suitcase up above the wardrobe, thank you very much.

So how do we keep those slightly disturbing emotions under control?  There’s many ways we do: shoe shopping and attacking the bathroom with bleach are examples..

For me, there’s rarely a time that a bit of fresh air and exercise won’t clear the head.  Thirty minutes in, and that first world problem of mine has pretty much disappeared.

But occasionally, there’s a need to balance out our emotions with sweet, indulgent goodness.

Drown our sorrows in carbohydrate.

Today was one of those days.  And if it’s going to be one of those days, it has to be done properly, in the form of fresh, crunchy-yet-chewy almond croissant, with generous amounts of almond paste inside…

You want one now, don’t you?

  1. Oh stop – that is so mean! But just the other week I discovered how to make doughnuts at home, troublesome knowledge!

  2. I got an email notification for some reason when I haven’t for other posts you have made recently. And yes I would recommend not making doughnuts at home – they are too hard to resist fresh from the pan!
