My friend and her beau came to visit from The Netherlands. I haven't seen her since November. We had a nice visit before she heads off to other parts of the West Coast. We sat and told stories (mostly mine) and ate the surprise I made.
Last night I made Clementine Pots de Crème. It turned out fabulous. Nice and creamy. It was not as sweet as I thought it would be but quite good. I could not find clementines so I used regular oranges. Next time I might try lemons! I bought some cute red ramekins to put the chocolate in.
My friend brought me the most fabulous thing from Europe. She brought me Ritter Sport bars in my favorite flavor Peppermint. It is made with dark chocolate, yum! Someone told me the Ritter bars directly from Europe are made from a better chocolate than the American ones. I will eat these slowly and savor each square.
It was so great to see her and meet her beau. She s so happy. I wish we had more time but I know it is hard to fit everything in when you only have a few days. I will just have to be content until the next visit.
