I write about food a lot in this blog. I can't help it, I love to eat. So now the holiday goodies are starting to trickle in at the shop and I'm finding it harder and harder to resist them. A sampling of some of the stuff we're now carrying over the holiday season:
cranberries cooked in Pays D'oc wine (yum, so good!)
fig and balsamic confit (spread on brie, wrap in pastry crust, bake, yum! or just put on ice cream! or foie gras! or, um. eat with a spoon!)
shallot confit (caramelized shallots, y'all!)
chestnuts from France
are already in the store! And these are coming soon!
apple, pear, butterscotch jam
lavender or rosemary honey from Provence
honey drops (hard honey "shell" outside, soft honey center)
sea salt caramels
herb and fruit tisanes
and SO MUCH MORE.
Every time I get to work there's more good stuff that we didn't have before. Plus we got all these fabulous new olive oils. It is INSANE. So. Much. Good. Food. And me, with an employee discount. I'm never gonna keep my girlish figure at this rate.
It's the weekend, so I'm mostly working and not knitting. Yarn later. Food porn now. Don't forget, we fall back an hour tonight. Set your clocks!
