When desires to venture beyond the local neighbourhoods overlapped with an opportunity to schedule my (supposed) first of many double dates, I fervently began planning the day's itinerary. In keeping with the theme of efficiency, I took to re-purposing previously donned work attire in a casual ensemble, prior to tossing into the wash.

A white, very upright polar bear was gifted to the sleepy polar bear.
The sapin sapin retained stronger coconut-ty aromas than previously, but its texture less velvety and more rigid. Each piece resulted in starchy residue on the fingertips. Instead of latik, which is often seen as being asymmetric in shape, the spread was topped with a spoonful of toasted, shredded coconut bearing slight savoury notes.
Alas, until that day arrives, I may very well settle for recreating these treats in the comfort of my own home.
