I came across a new expression today, la der des ders (lah dare day dare), which means literally, “the very last one,” as in “Tu veux ce morceau de tarte aux framboises? C’est la der des ders.” What a useful expression! Where has it been all my life?
And I’ll share another recent discovery with you. If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, I highly recommend their Raspberry Tarte in the freezer case. Imported from France, it’s really quite remarkably good. I’ll help myself to la der des ders, unless you beat me to it.
