Mmmmmm!! …. Mmmmmm!!

Didn’t want to open this gorgeous box but I had to … just had to try one … after I was given very explicit instructions on firstly .. how to open it … then .. open the package … ‘slowly and carefully’ .. put my nose at the package opening .. and s-l-o-w-l-y whiff … that gorgeous chocolatie aroma ….
A ‘little belated birthday gift’ from our Colombian friend who came for dinner last night.
Now, how can anyone resist not having one, after all that … so my explicit instructions were to pop one in the mouth and … don’t chew … let it melt .. s-l-o-w-l-y and enjoy the deliciously indulgent flavours … yu!! Oooh! Ahh!! “Nice?” ..need he ask! “Mmm .. deeelishish!” still savouring the soft creamy insides having enjoyed the soft dark chocolatie outer layer while it melted s-l-o-w-l-y ! .. “and then comes the after-taste” he said .. mmm – yep .. got that too !
To have/eat/melt-in-mouth one of these delicacies is “best with a glass of a good chilled champagne”!! I was told. We didn’t have the chilled ‘champers’ but had this excellent red Bordeaux wine …

Have just looked up this on the website – 2004 bottle was awarded the Decanter South Africa Bordeaux Varietals Trophy for 2008 and the Caylon Trophy for the best Bordeaux blend for 2008. Its a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc matured in French Nevers barrels for 25 months. Yum!

This is the friend – not the bottle .. but the person – who couldn’t make it to our braai/bbq on Friday evening and actually spent the weekend sampling one of our hospitals! Thought he would like to compare it to a hotel room, he said! He has recovered and I knew he would love a dinner of lamb roast with roast potatoes and veggies. I was right! He did enjoy it and for his pud’ – I made his favourite – chocolate eclairs, filled with fresh organic whipped cream (thought I would get the organic as it’s healthier!!!) and topped with chocolatie chocolate !!!

Pssst !! … have a whiff ….

Look .. but don’t touch !!

Mr T …. I will be waiting in anticipation for my ‘red dot’ on South America! I have been amazed, truly amazed, ever since starting my blog a few months ago, at how many ‘hits’ I have got from different corners of the globe! It has been overwhelming and encouraging! Thanks to all of you!! But I now need/would love a ‘red dot’ on South America on my little teeny tiny map! I have told him about my blog so I will be waiting ……. patiently!
