Photo of the Day: My sister has been upset that I don’t take enough food pictures... though I didn’t get to eat these, they were too pretty not to photograph! A woman was hand-making these gorgeous tartelettes and selling them out of her ornament-shop window... my mouth is watering just looking at this shot! 🍰🇫🇷

Tip of the Day: In stark contrast to these fresh, homemade goodies... Picard. Picard is a frozen food/meal store in France. And though I do cook for myself quite a lot, it is a lifesaver. Sometimes weeks are crazy busy and stressful, and when you’re in a new country, your go-to quick dishes are no longer go-to dishes (re: me going to 5 stores in search of black beans). I equate Picard to Trader Joe’s in terms of frozen food quality, and while I try not to rely on frozen meals, as someone who likes structure and reliability (and counts calories), Picard has made my life a lot easier quite a few times. On top of a huge variety of frozen meals (including diet, gluten free, and vegan), Picard also has frozen produce and meats, as well as huge assortments of appetizer and entertainment foods. It’s the perfect place to go if you’re hosting a soirée and don’t have time to cook mini quiches or canapés in your own, or if you’re just exhausted thinking about your week and you want to avoid spending a bunch of money on meals out! Picard has a carte de fidélité (loyalty card) program, and is very, very affordable! So if you’re moving to France and trying to figure out what to cook (or HOW to cook on your new micro-sized kitchen appliances) is making you hyperventilate, pop by a Picard (they’re literally everywhere), and take a load off. There’s no shame in feeding yourself and getting peace of mind at the same time.
