Almond Rose Financiers Using Almond Flour

Taking the ordinary to extra ordinary, I made almond rose financiers. These were inspired by a coffee date at Schoon, where we met James shortly before our trip overseas.

My toothbrush continues to conspire. After having endless issues with the charging of our holiday toothbrush I have now made sure to charge it the day before I pack. This means that it should work on the plane, and for the first few days of our holiday. When we were on the barge the battery went flat. This was to be expected so I plugged the charger in, and it did not work. I do not like using the electric toothbrush without the vibration. So the next day I went looking for a new one. The shops in Auxerre had the Oral B Children’s brushes, but not one for adults. Settling for second best, I purchased two ordinary, cheap toothbrushes for Dave and I to use. None of the shops I went into had stock of the adult toothbrushes.

I did a Google search and discovered that FNAC sold them, but at €99 I was not going to buy one. And then, in a large supermarket, I found it for €29! I didn’t have to think twice about buying it. Not only was it cheaper than in South Africa, it is lighter and smaller than the one we are currently using. As soon as we got back to the apartment I put our toothbrush on charge. I must say I was quite pleased to use it again after 1 week of brushing the old fashioned way. I have put the toothbrush into the bottom drawer for when Dave’s finally stops working. And the charger is with our holiday electronic things. I have also put the two cheapies into our carry-on luggage for in case (no pun intended). This should ensure the electronic one does not fail again.

  1. I used to have an electric toothbrush but I didn’t like it so I changed back to a manual one. I also use a water cleaner instead of dental floss. I had braces put on about 3 weeks ago and that makes oral hygiene both more important and more challenging.

  2. Hehe I love my electric toothbrush too but have never thought to bring it overseas. I think there’s a new brand that I’ve heard of with a really long charge although I haven’t tried it yet as we’ve bought lots of heads for our current one.

  3. Sorry about your toothbrush traveling drama! 🙂 I’ve got leftover almond flour from a granola recipe. Must make these!

  4. Oh don’t your Financiers look good! I wouldn’t mind having one right now, along with a good cup of coffee. I would love to give your recipe a try. Thank you for sharing.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will only be visible once I reply)
