French Christmas Fair

Last Saturday, some friends and I checked out the French Christmas Fair at Sorae Maeul, the French village. It was a bit smaller than I expected, but it was still a good time with some interesting sights. Just being around so many French people and hearing people talking in French reminded me of my fabulous vacation in Paris earlier this year. Sigh... I miss the Raspail Organic Market! good times.

There was even a stall making buckwheat crepes! I was about to order a plain one, but then i saw the man rub butter on the crepe pan before pouring on the batter, so I opted out.

It was soooo cold outside that we couldn't enjoy the fair for too long and headed to a nearby cozy cafe to hangout~ Overall, it was a great day! Perhaps next year, I'll get my own table at the fair and sell some French-inspired vegan treats. :P

And here are some sweet things I've baked and eaten lately:

I also made some ginger-coconut muffins. I've had these Christmas muffin cups for several years, so I finally put some of them to good use.
