Sydney Road is always a surprise. Nifty shops. Good food. Terrible traffic and never any parking. Luckily today the Parking Gods favoured the Volvo and we managed a park close to our destination. Choukette.
The real reason for the foray over to Brunswick was yet another visit to yet another senior school. This time a tour through Brunswick Secondary College. Not too bad, possibly a front runner (they had a great arts /drama/dance program). We are still debating the merits of public versus private but Brunswick seems to have a lot on offer, the buildings aren't falling down (or portable horrors), the kids didn't look like juvenile delinquents and the teaching staff all seemed very enthusiastic.
As a reward for spending the morning school hunting, we headed over to Sydney Road and ducked into Choukette for a quick coffee and pastry. Ben had a particularly delicious Almond Croissant and I settled for the slightly less fattening looking Choukette. Very, very good.
Mostly because I love the colours, I bought a box of assorted French Macarons for the journey home. Last time I had Macarons, I made them myself, and although they were beautiful, I am too lazy to make more than one flavour at any given time. My recipe made about two dozen filled macarons, of which all were eaten. That can't be good.
