Mango Fried Rice and Lemon Ganache

What was supposed to be a overcast dreary day turned out to be sunny and toasty instead. Erika got her cubicle tour, saw my townhouse and got acquainted with Concord. We had really good Thai food and did some shopping. I stopped in a jewelry store to talk about having something new designed with my wedding rings. We found lots of fun shops to poke around and places to go back to again later.
After we were loaded down with stuff we returned to the car. The original plan was to get a treat. But then I decided it wasn't worth walking back downtown. Just as we were ready to start the car I saw it. The three most beautiful words. "Fine French Pastries." We hopped right back out of the car and into the store we parked in front of. Good golly was it delicious. The friendly owner/pastry chef took his time describing each of the choices. Erika and I split a mini citron cake and a concoction of raspberry jelly filled cake rolls wrapped around a coconut cream center. They had some fancy french names for all of the ingredients but I can't remember them. I have a peach filled brioche for tomorrow night and Jay is getting a little something special tonight too. Erika and I declared Concord to be a city worthy of Keegan and I living in.
