Belgian Treats

About three years ago, My Beloved and I spent two weeks in Belgium enjoying every minute, every sight, and every taste. Belgium is heaven for food lovers, with more four-star restaurants within its small borders than in the whole of France. One of its treats that we revisited recently is the chocolate.

My Beloved's younger daughter K had the good sense to recognize a delightful young man the first time she met A - they have been inseparable ever since. We all love A, even when he's not bringing us boxes of truffles to remind us of those delightful Belgian adventures.

A was in Brussels last week on business and flew back with the real deal, Neuhaus Belgian Truffles.
You can find Neuhaus chocolates in the US, and they are delicious - but they are not the same as you get in Belgium. These are good-sized dots of dark chocolate filled with even richer chocolate mousse and dusted, as if the two-chocolate theme was not sufficient, with almost-bitter cocoa. Even serious chocolate lovers can only eat one at a sitting. We have been savoring this gift one by one ever since. As K knew from the moment she met him, A is a keeper!

Zoomie & I will be at town council meeting this evening. The reward for being so civic minded is ... thanks to A .... there will be the last two truffles awaiting our return!

BuzzB, it was great, wasn't it? Not the meeting, but the reward!
