In typical holiday fashion, last night was all about good food and great people.
Tate’s brother and our sister-in-law had us and a few others over for Sunday night dinner. They, very conveniently, live less than a 10 minute walk away from my mom’s house! Gotta love small towns.
The baby was scrumptious as can be…
The cheese was delish…(a goat Gouda, mmmmm)
The gluten-free crackers were quite tasty…
The coleslaw was tasty and tangy…
Our hosts gorgeous and gracious…
But the truffles…the TRUFFLES were A-MA-ZING!!!
Rich ganache dusted with high-quality cocoa from Venezuela. This cocoa was a beautiful deep, rich red and perfectly balanced between sweet and bitter.
This man knows his way around the sugar bowl.
He is The Crazy Baker! Hal Hitzig is a truly talented baker. Lucky for me, he lives in my hometown! Lucky for you, he ships! Seriously, if you are looking for a special treat-look no further. His granola is the best I’ve had. He takes great pride in his products and it shows. His eggs are local, his flour high-quality, and his vanilla 100% real.
He made our wedding cake and it was GORGEOUS, I don’t have time right now to comb through and find the picture but I’ll get you one later.
Speaking of sugar, I am heading out to the farm to make ginger bread cookies! It’s another tasty tradition!
I’ve got a question for you, last week when I started comment commit I planned to do it for a week and see how it went. I’ve really enjoyed the last week and all the support and accountability. How about you? Should we keep going until New Year’s?
Today I am going to take a walk and do some strength training.
