FOOD FINDS!

I went out today right after lunch to go get some chocolate for a Yummy shoot tomorrow. I tried a recipe of a chocolate croissant pudding. I wasn't so happy with it. I wanted more chocolate in the pudding...so I had to go out to get some more dark chocolate. While at the store, I saw some items that I found interesting so I grabbed them as well. Here's what I got...


Caramel Fudge and Chocolate Fudge...something to top your ice cream with or make other great desserts with. I have to buy some vanilla ice cream and try it out tomorrow.

Then I saw this pack of Cocoa Tablea... not bad for the price. I wonder if it's any good. I'll actually try some after I write this...
Then I saw these vanilla sticks. It's 3 in a pack. I intend to use one stick to dunk in my bowl of sugar. I'm thinking, it would smell so good to use that sugar for my coffee or tea... I'll have to wait for about a week for the vanilla scent to infuse in the sugar...I'll let you know if it's any good.
Here's the label for the vanilla sticks...it's organically grown in Papua New Guinea...

I headed to Terry's in Podium to get other stuff... here's what I found... cheese with cranberries, and Manchego marinated in red wine...perfect for after dinner get togethers.
This brand of truffle oil, I encountered when I went to Italy years ago. We actually went to see the factory where it was made. I had to get a bottle. This time, I got the white truffle oil instead of the black. Now I have to plan to make the pasta with truffle cream sauce to try the oil out. The price was a bit reasonable considering the size of the bottle but comparing it to say like the price of a gallon of olive oil, this one becomes very expensive...oh but as they say...life is short so the food you eat should have some quality also... for you only eat three times a day. Every meal should be memorable...
Lastly, I had them slice me some chorizo pamplona. They were out of stock the last time. I'll probably make a panini sandwich with it tomorrow. Ok, that's all for now. Got to head back in the kitchen to make another batch of chocolate croissant pudding...You should smell my kitchen now...it smells heavenly!!!
