Michael brought home a little box of treats yesterday. One of his coworkers passed them out (thanks Gina!). I was immediately entranced by the lovely packaging and the beautiful chocolates.
I can safely vouch that the burnt caramel and peppermint marshmallow are fantastic. But I think my favorite has to be the pistachio cocoa nib buttercrunch. Unlike toffee or brittle which are hard, potentially deadly to teeth, and get stuck everywhere in my mouth, the buttercrunch is almost crumbly. Delicious!
What a lovely gift.

I can’t believe it’s already the third Thanksgiving I’ve spent in Indiana with Michael’s father’s family. These awesome people who already feel like family will actually (legally) be family in six short months after our wedding.
All I really need to know is that there are some terrific pie-makers in the family (my future sisters-in-law), a great cook who whips up fettucine al vongole in 20 minutes flat (Verne), and the best maker-of-mashed-potatoes in the world (Carmen).
If nothing else, I will be well-fed and able to look forward to many more sessions of Michael dancing Gangnam Style on the Wii.
