Always something to celebrate

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

Since I found out about the National Day Calendar, I've had loads of fun making graphics.  Did you know that today is National Croissant Day? I've been talking about it for days, because I had a bunch of different croissant pictures that I bought and wanted to play with to celebrate the day for each of my different series. (The graphic at the right is for my Victoria Square Mystery series; I also did one for Lotus Bay and Booktown).

What an even bigger surprise to find that Mr. L had gone to the store to buy a bunch of croissants for our breakfast. OMG -- I love croissants. I love them for breakfast, but even better--stuffed with chicken salad.

My Dad made the best chicken salad in the world, made with lots of crunchie bits. (Onions and celery.) I've tried making it for years, and have never been able to make it the same as he did, probably because he made it with love.

So, what would you like with/on/in your croissant?
