Church ? Opera house ? This is Dôme de la Grave, public hospital in Toulouse. Tower at right side is l'Eglise St. Nicolas (St Nicolas Church)

The Prairie des Filtres, originally a marshy island of little interest which had sanded up over the years ; was used as a natural filter for the water pumped from Garonne up to Château d'Eau Laganne / Laganne Water Tower . This little park near Garonne River is a nice place to go for nice walk or just get relax.

Pièce Montée of 07/07/07

Sunday, July 08, 2007 | with 4 comments »

From my 07/07/07 party last night, I present to you this typical french dessert. This Pièce Montée we usually have for special celebration such as weddings, baptisms and special birthdays. For his special birthday (the 50th), Thierry has Pièce Montée with the form of Aeroplane ! I think Thierry has good choice of Pièce Montée in the form of aeroplane. Why? On the 07/07/07, many couples got married and I think many has Pièce Montée but with traditional form (conical shape). Thierry's one is different and of course make it special. Some more info for you, the term pièce montée is sometimes used to refer to the dessert also known as croquembouche, an assemblage of cream puffs (or occasionally other kinds of candy or pastry) stuck together with caramel or spun sugar into a tall, usually conical shape.
PS : Don't you think it is triple 7 of Boeing (Boeing 777) ? :))
