It was a beautiful morning, ahhh! I went outside a while, and just smiled. Greeted my loco neighbor cats with my shiny smiley teeth. Ain’t no sunshine when them felines are around.
Just take in some clean fresh ashen air girls & boys. Ain’t no sense stayin’ inside. Then, head toward the cafe to find seats to read the last issue of the L.A. Times as we know it. I could foresee this happening to the LAT when KB abandoned them. Yet, I could understand is was a no-brainer for her to work serving a couple of canines instead. Her income she could supplement from purse holding.
Butt, I digest….
Before I left the dog mansion, I mustered a quickie profile in courage to tackle a difficult and controversial topic.
These “mac” cookies are a surprisingly popular issue on the world wide internet. From discussions by well known chefs to websites holding a Macaroon/Macaron(?) Week! When locals get into it with brief mentions suddenly popping up in blog comments now and then…well, you know it’s become big time news.
I’ve also noticed a frequent by-product of all this is confusion backed by a short supply of knowledge on macaroon’s or macaron’s. For example, lack of knowing how to spell this particular cookie. Confusion over which is a macaroon and which one is the macaron. Others have gone so far as to claim they’ve never had one! I hear some of you: “That’s an outrage!”
That each cookie can be tweaked to come out in a variety of flavors doesn’t aid the decision. Chocolate, sea salt, pistachio, cherry, coconut, lime, blueberry, etc.
Unfortunately, my knowledge on these cookies is limited: I know that I like one, and I know I love the other!
Well, before we can even EAT the cookie, we should know what we want, what to ask for, and thus what we are actually biting into! Am I being clear & concise, if not understandable?
As a consequence, we’re gonna embark on a controversial butt short journey that may lead to a tasty ending. We begin in genesis to identify what is what. This article will be a Test…kitchen :
Below are 2(two) set of fotos. Macaron’s and macaroon’s. Which set of photos is which? That is, which are de macaroon’s, and which photo are the macaron’s?
Examine these specimens closely. A simple case of identification by sight. Still, you are allowed to cheat on this test if you pull out your friends big long microscope for an up close & personal inspection. Nevertheless, the learning curve outta be short & sweet – no sweat, I assume…
Ok, you’ve closely examined the two sets of three fotos above: The top set, and, the bottom set. Please do your patriotic duty, now, by going to the polls to enter your votes in the ballot boxes below. One vote for the foto set you believe are the Macaroon’s, and another vote for the set which you think are the Macaron’s.
I’ve gotta be on my way now. So long. Ain’t no fun just hangin’ around. I’ve gotta cover more ground. Stay Thirsty My Friends…
