I meant to post this yesterday but time got a bit away from me. All 24 hours of it. It's Spring. Spring in Charleston is something else. Everyone is everywhere, all at once, all together, all the time. Buzz, buzz, buzz! Let's just say that I can't wait to get a fill of colors and good people today at the farmers' market and grab a pain au chocolat for him and a cafe au lait, double milk, for me.
Yes, this week's word is milk. "Lait" (click on link for pronunciation) (and if you were in France in the 1990s, remember this?)
If you ever go or have been to France you will notice that we take our morning cup of coffee with milk rather seriously. We take the entire dairy world just as seriously actually. No kidding. The first picture in this post by David Lebovitz pretty much sums it up. Plain, fruity, creamy, chunky, organic, artisan... you name it - we have it.
And I do have a slight collective penchant for milk bottles of all shapes and sizes.
When I feel my energy level dip or my brain getting more fogged up than usual, I know I need a little boost of milk. A tad more than the few drops I pour in my morning coffee. Which is why I love our farmers market, I can get fresh from the farm raw milk all throughout the summer the way we used to back home.
So...What do you do to get that extra jolt to make it through the week? Please share! Food related or not.
Have a great weekend!
