He’s Crazy

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.
