While over in the 7th arrondissement today I headed to one of my favorite boulangerie's in Paris, Poujauran. It has many delicious things to offer, including their well-known and well-loved canelé cakes. However, my favorite item to order is the sable a l'orange et raisin -- these absolutely simple and delicious flat cookies. If you go to the store, sacs of these wonderful cookies are always located right next to register. If you are walking around rue Cler, you most definitely need to head over to this bakery.
My husband and daughter were both home sick today. Although my husband is on the mend, my daughter was complaining that her ear hurt. She had a number of ear infections before the age of two, but it's been a while since she's had one. I hope she doesn't have a new infection, but if it hurts in the morning, we'll head over to the doctor.

Thanks for posting about your favorite bakery! Every time we visit Paris we stay on rue Cler. Hopefully we will be making it to Paris next summer and will definitely check out your suggestions!

I can't think of where rue Cler is. What metro?

Oz, I didn't know they see vitamin c fortified here. If I were going to look for it someplace, I'd check out one of the Naturalia health stores.
Terry, I've been to rue Cler a couple of times. It's a nice place to walk around and there is a lot to do in the area.
RB, You sound like a professional expat. Maybe you didn't need Bloom!
Jason, I love this upgrade on blogger. It's a lot nicer to work with, I agree.

Paris was tough! Message was invaluable to me when I was pregnant.
I tried WICE for a while, but I could never know ahead of time if I was going to be able to break away from translating. So taking scheduled classes was not easy.
Hope your daughter feels better already!

L'oiseau, Yes there are some amazing food stores on rue Cler. It would be hard to move away from there!
Andrea, L'atelier De Joel Robuchon is supposed to be wonderful, but I haven't saved up enough money to try it yet. It's definitely a special occasion type thing.
Daniel, Everyone seems to be sick right now. My daughter's birthday party is tomorrow so I hope she recovers quickly!
Magabe, I, um, may have eaten them all. They don't look anywhere as impressive as they taste. I'll try to get back over there to buy more... just for you :)
Oz, Good to know. Thanks.
RB, She's been to the doctor. She does have one of those awful ear infections. The medicine hasn't started working and she's screaming in pain about every 20 minutes.
