Brownie woes and joys
The second best are made by Catherine, the Brownie Lady, who sells her wares at the Argelès marché on Saturdays. She also bakes other goodies, minced pies, different fruit pies, savory tarts. In the winter her husband's homemade vin chaud is beyond yummy as guests at our Tree Decorating Open House attested.
We would buy four and ration them out during the week usually while watching a DVD. Ice cream, chocolate sauce was optional.
The last couple of weeks the weather had been too bad for Catherine to set up her stand.
We are going through serious brownie withdrawal.
Thank goodness Rick found a package of brownie mix bought at the American store in Collogny. It was Ghardilli. He will make them today.
Hopefully, they will be able to tide us over until Saturday's marché.
