Not a bad weekend. Family visited and I rediscovered that red wine is very nice mixed into gravy.

I also sampled some of the special chocolates that I colleague got from Brussels. I had some spare Euros left and she had a stack of time after her meeting, so I gave her the addresses of some of the best choccy shops and she picked me up two boxes. I've opened the one from Wittamer and can report that they are verrrrrrry nice. The other one is from Galler and I'm saving those for the moment. Not sure how long I can hold onto them though as the cream in them means that they have to be eaten quite quickly.

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Also had blackcurrant meringue with chantilly cream and home made raisin cakes. :-)

Today I am mostly surrounded by chocolate.

One of my colleagues went to Brussels for a meeting yesterday and using instructions relayed from my Belgian penfriend, went to some of the best chocolate shops. She picked up stuff for herself and friends and a batch for me, using up a bunch of Euros that I'd been hanging on to for a couple of years. I now have to boxes of choccies, one from Wittamer and one from Galler.

I also made a chocolate fridge cake last night. This is a Konditer chocolate biscuit cake and is immensely rich with 200g of chocolate, butter, golden syrup, walnuts, biscuit, sultanas and cherries. I'm putting on pounds just thinking about it!

People seem to be taking a piece, biting into it, emitting several expletives and then wandering off with a glazed expression. I'm taking this as a good sign. :-)

That's with some Belgian biscuits that my colleague brought back and is currently being munched through by the office.

Hmmm... wonder if I could batter and deep fry it? :o)
