Valentine Macarons for Mactweets

My hubby canot understand when I tell him it is Mac time again.
H : You just made them.
M: That was last month.

I made these ones.
First day H: They taste good with the filling.
Daughter : Delicous Mac, May I have few more.
Second day with coffee i serve them : Hubby takes only one
Daughter: Eats few again

Third day I was planning to serve them again for coffee time.
While I was making coffee hubby come to the kitchen and tell me, you are not going to give me those Macs again are you. I close my box of Macarons in silent and when daughter comes from school we both enjoy them :-)

I am sure he is hopping I won't make them soon...........

This month was Valentine. And I was delighted as I could use the colours etc... sis send for me.
Not that I am to valentiene celebration. I just think the day is so comercial. Why should there be one day to celebrate. I never do anything for valentine. I just don't fall for all the phooha for this day.
I used this burgondy colour and decorated them with silver dotts and hearts, just to go with the theme.
Used the same Ottolenghi recipe like the last Mac attack.

Usha said...

Regarding your question on substitution for lima beans, I think something like black eyed peas also known as chawli/ cow peas would probably work well !

Beautiful! We also do not really celebrate Valentines, especially that our anniversary is on 14th of January, so we have had celebrated already ;) But I will probably do some cake or cupcakes having blog in mind.

I must admit I have never made macaroons yet... once of those classics from my "to do" list.

By the way, thank you for all those lovely comments on my lunchboxes :)
