Countdown to Valentine's Day: 11 Days

Confiture, Je t'aime and a crêpe for the Chandeleur.  

My husband came home with a large stack of crêpes last night to celebrate the Chandeleur, a French holiday welcoming the first signs of Spring (so far absent this year).  Needless to say, my kids were in heaven.  My husband vaguely explained some of the rituals behind the holiday, which involved flipping a crêpe and a coin at the same time.  You can find a much more detailed history of the holiday and a nice recipe for crêpes over at the wonderful blog Chocolate and Zucchini.

Confiture Je t'aime available at La Grande Epicerie, Le Bon Marché
