I was excited to see that the event catered by La Boulange, even though I haven't loved many of their offerings, because I love baked goods, and I always want to like them more than I do. Plus, discovering their yogurt and granola is still one of my fondest food memories.
I am glad I got to try even more of their goods, but I can't say I have any interest in getting any of it again, which is basically how I feel about everything I've ever tried from there (except the granola of course!)
|Mini French Hot Dog. $2.|
Available in full size at the bakery for $4.25, minis are $2 each for catering. My favorite of the savory items.
|Petite Quiche: Vegetable. $2.33.|
They also sell larger versions of these at the bakeries, which they'll warm up for you, for $4.25.
|Petite Quiche: Salmon and Dill. $2.33.|

Goat Cheese and Butternut Squash Crostini
I really did not like this. The bread was soggy. I don't like goat cheese. The little cubes of butternut squash were ok, but not remarkable. Least favorite of the savory items.
|Choux Choux. $0.75.|
The choux pastry was decent, fairly light and airy, although a little more eggy than I'd like. The fillings were all very creamy, and squirted out all over the place when you bit into them, no matter how careful you were.
The vanilla filling was my favorite. It had a really strong vanilla bean flavor. I'd happily consume a bowl full of that as pudding! The mixed berry was my second pick. It again had a strong flavor, this time of assorted berries, and it had some seeds in it too, leading me to believe it was made with real fruit. My last pick was the chocolate, which was also good, but not quite as flavorful as the others.
Of all the items offerred, these were certainly my favorites, but I don't think I'd ever go buy them. $0.75 was a very good price.
