I think we found a car! Okey, we’re going this morning to Pittsburg to check and try it but I really hope, everything is fine! I don’t want bad surprise or “already sold”. Pleas, not that!! We just want a car. I want to go to Walmart without any trouble.
Yesterday, I came in bus to Walmart to pick up ID photos and then, went to UPS Store. I did all that for my EAD, Employment Authorization Document, I will finally be able to work in U.S.!! Well, I hope my file will be accepted. Anyway, the problem was, there is no place to walk. Actually some sidewalk but difficult to access and not very nice, you have to make detours and it’s really not simple. I can’t wait for this car. I just want to go shopping without trouble.
This problem aside, today I share with you a very frenchy recipe! Chouquettes are very famous in France, everyone loves them. It’s a super easy chou with some sugar on the top. It’s perfect for the afternoon snack with a tea for example. Some people prefers them for breakfast. We find them on every French Boulangerie.
It’s not a big deal to make chouquettes, I sure you will like to do them but love to eat them!!
Tell me if you like the recipe!
