No Pain, No Gain


These are beyond words when served warm and dunked in hot chocolate. They're called pain au chocolat, a.k.a.... chocolate bread. (Pain sounds nothing like our word in English... It sounds more like pahn, with the n barely pronounced.) They're a staple in France for breakfast and afternoon snacks. Before I came here, I didn't know I couldn't live without them. They're nice and flaky with two narrow strips of chocolate running down the inside... Just ten seconds in the microwave and voila, parfait! Perfect.
 
Okay, enough already... I need to go jog around the block ten times before I start trying to think about which of our town's four bakeries are open right now....
