Tau macaroon, nggak? Ini sebenarnya mirip-mirip merengue yang terbuat dari putih telur yang dikocok sampai kaku. Biasanya dicampur gula, biar manis, terus dipanggang. Karena terbuat dari putih telur aja, dan nggak pakai tepung, adonannya ringan, dan begitu ditaruh di atas lidah… langsung meleleh, deh! Biasanya merengue nggak ada filling/isinya, jadi katakanlah macaroon itu semacam merengue yang pakai macam-macam filling ๐Ÿ˜€

Karena di Le Codefin, Kemang, ada yang jualan macaroon, saya dan Nena nggak tahan untuk nggak beli. Lihat saja, bentuk dan warnanya imut-imut begitu!

Ini macaroon yang brand-nya Maca Express; harganya 10ribu sekeping. Cih. Lumayan mahal, mengingat betapa kecil ukurannya, dan betapa cepat dia akan meleleh di dalam mulut. Tapi, sudahlah, akhirnya kami tergoda membeli 5 keping: rasa green tea, peach, strawberry, blueberry, dan passion fruit.

Buat yang masih penasaran soal macaroon, penjelasan panjang tentang macaroon bisa dibaca di artikel Wikipedia ini:

The word macaroon is applied to a variety of light, baked confections, described as either small cakes or meringue-like cookies depending on their consistency. The original macaroon was a “small sweet cake consisting largely of ground almonds”[1] similar to Italian amaretti. Today, other common varieties include the coconut macaroon and the French macaroon or macaron, which can have various flavourings and is typically cream-filled.

The English word macaroon and French macaron come from the Italian maccarone or maccherone. This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat,[2] used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient.

Most recipes call for egg whites (usually whipped to stiff peaks), with ground or powdered nuts, generally almond or coconut. Almost all call for sugar. Macaroons are commonly baked on edible rice paper placed on a baking tray.

Beradadisini Love Letter to Self
I took up a personal journaling project this week: writing a love letter to myself before bed. I work on a thin A6-size handmade paper journal I got from a paper artist, Els. The journal is thin and small enough, so it doesn't overwhelm me. It feels like I am only going to work on a small project.

Standing up for yourself does not have to look aggressive. It does not have to feel like a fight. It's not always about convincing others or explaining yourself and your decisions with the hope that everyone else understands or accepts your choice.
