Saint Michael's Mount & Mont Saint Michel

These are great little tartlets that I buy at Trader Joe's, from France.

The picture of Mont Saint Michel on the package brings back memories. Mont Saint Michel is in Brittany, the corresponding one to that is Saint Michael's Mount in Cornwall; which I visited as a child. It's an island when the tide is in and when the tide is out you can walk across a stone causeway to it. Originally it was a monastic abbey, but after the time of Henry VIII, became privately owned.

I have never had the opportunity to visit the one in Brittany, but hope to see it some day.

  1. Saw the one in Cornwall across the water from the village. It was perfect weather...rainy and windy. :)
