The candy kind I mean.  You may remember that I had complained back before Christmas about the Candy Kitchen.  They seemed in disarray and tired.  However,  last week I was out stretching my legs and stopped by.  Looking around I saw a lot of new candy and noticed that they had reworked their truffles.  There were lots of new flavors .  Immediately one caught my eye that I knew I had to have:  Dark chocolate with sea salt.  Now I have to confess:  I prefer milk chocolate.  (Please stifle the gasps) and I like it unsalted, but I knew I had to take these home to Mrs. F.  They combined two of her favorite food things.  I was not wrong.  She gobbled them down and professed them the most wonderful thing to come out of the Candy Kitchen ever.

I was going to insert a wonderful close up picture of the truffles, but they didn’t last long enough to be photographed.  Go get some.

Odds and Ends &The Candy Kitchen

With all that’s going on blogging is always a little light this time of year.  Busy planning the menus!

Just noticed that the Frederick Wine House is having the Willm Cremant d’Alsace available for tasting tomorrow (12/24) from 4pm -7 pm along with some other wines.  Its free!  If you happen to taste it let me know what you think.

When eating and drinking I usually feel that quality is preferred over quantity.  That’s why in the Fred household we usually give the kids a nice piece of chocolate in their stockings from the Candy Kitchen.  Mrs. F usually gets an all dark chocolate box of truffles from there as well.  Last week I stopped by to get the goods and the place was in utter disarray and had little or no stock.  Now I know that this is their busy season, and it is always chaotic when you go this time of year, but it seemed worse then usual:  no chocolate Santas at all and little or no truffles.  This was first thing in the morning as well, so it wasn’t like they were hit hard before I got there.  Anyone else experience this?  Anyone know what’s going on?  It made me sad, but I had to get the stuff elsewhere.  First time in 13 years no Candy Kitchen in Mrs F’s stocking.

Careful opening that bubbly.  A recent study found that Champagne corks come out at over 24 mph!
