French boulangerie diet fail!
With the wind in the right direction I am acutely aware of the boulangerie along my street.
I can usually manage to resist a pain au chocolat mid morning and I always have a proper lunch between 12.30 and 1.30 but it’s the gouter time from 4 p.m onwards that tests my will power.
So I devised a cunning plan.
The aforementioned palace of delights closes at 7 p.m.
Therefore I will not venture out until 6.30p.m (late for tea but who cares)
By this time most of the bread will be gone and only a few of the scrumptious cakes left.
So in I trot only to find a new rule. France has a new rule every day, somewhere, apparently.
After 6.30p.m. TWO cakes for the price of ONE!!
Nom ,nom, nom 😉
