Everytime I go to LGO, I end up in the bathroom admiring this artwork,
trying to figure a way to smuggle it out in my bag.
They look like someone made them but when you look up close, they look
like prints…I’m perplexed! And my favorite one is too high on the
wall to reach, so perhaps I’ll inquire about them next time I’m in.
In the meantime, if you live in the area, stop by LGO for a Havana
Latte. Rarely do I like sweet coffee drinks, but this one is a perfect
La Grande Orange is located on 40th and Campbell (about two blocks
south of Camelback).
Any ideas about how to sneak off with one of the prints or about their
origin, let me know. 🙂
Song of the day: I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ by: Scissor Sister
It’s one of those odd days. Where it’s still cool and you can leave the front door open, yet it’s not too sunny or hot. It’s an East Coast springtime day. The type of day where you laze around the house, letting the breeze blow through. Have a glass of wine, sit on the porch and put on some great music. It’s a day where job worries, money worries, and my most current worry: guys, flutter away on the breeze.
It has been negligent of me to not introduce you to the
players in this world of mine sooner, so I apologize for the social misstep. As
you know, I am Croissant. I love coffee, fine French pastry, music, sitting in
the bookstore all day, going dancing with the girls, dinners with fabulous
conversation, and a glass of good wine or beer after a long day at work. Now,
my glam squad, who you will often encounter here:
Cutie McFrangipane is my bestest. She understands my every
thought and listens to me discussing every crazy item that speeds through my
mind. We are co-foodies; music nuts, cheese addicts and readying ourselves to
do our first try of absinthe. I would do anything for her and I know that those
feelings are mutual, which is why she is my bestest.
Mme Gateau au Chocolat is an amazingly feisty woman. A cake
diva, she is brains, beauty and no bullshit. Her ambition and determination
inspire me. A fellow work-a-holic, I admire the class and style she bring to
everything she tackles.
E. Clair Napoleon is my partner in crime. Find a crazy
situation, and we are probably the cause of it. She is the first person I would
call if I were in a bar brawl. The encouragement that she gives me everyday to
keep going and even to start this blog, makes me feel like my dream of
conquering the world, isn’t impossible. She’s a pistol if you make her mad, but
is one of the sweetest and most giving people I know. Her purse addiction is
worse than mine.
Pinky l’Oreo is one of the toughest broads I’ve ever met. She
is also one of the most adorable, with a pink-ed up kitchen and wardrobe. We
have pulled each other through some tough times and toasted with champagne at
the end. We’re both competitive and hate to lose.
Chef Krispie Kreme is dedicated to her job as a pastry chef. She’s smart, funny, a loyal friend, and an excellent dancer who knows every rap song known to man.
Mlle Vino is a soon-to-be sommelier and my fondue friend. She loves food, wine and adventure as much as I do, which is obviously why we are such great friends. We are currently prepping for some salsa lessons and general tomfoolery.
Other people will be introduced to you, but these are the
main players, the loves of my life, the people I want at my dinner table, at the end of the day.
More tasty tidbits tomorrow, friends. ;o)
Much Love, Croi

Ask me where it all began. There are so many defining moments in my journey where my love for food and travel could have budded. All I know is I’m here now, writing to you about my life in food and all the amazing and beautiful travels I get to experience.
