A dear friend of mine surprised me by dropping by in the morning, and brought me with a sweet treat! Completely unexpected.
It's a giant truffle; the kind of truffle that fairytales are filled with. I'm thinking Alice in Wonderland, minus the creepiness.
(I've never been keen on that story, although I convinced myself to watch Tim Burton's adaption last year and didn't mind it. I just can't recover after being scarred for life during my early childhood by a frighteningly bad made-for-television version!)
Fresh berries in abundance. I am blessed to live in an area where they are grown locally!
(Comment: Did you happen to notice how these are missing the tops? I've seen them sold at stores this way, as well (and it just seems a shame to lose practically half of the berry!). Anyway, my little sister has henceforth been banned from slicing strawberries until she can properly cut them without taking off a quarter of the berry. My brothers and I thought this was pretty funny, and we'll be happy to help her until she can get it right!)
Now, the Tiramisu... It will get its own special post, because I need your advice!
