Lovely Present.

I got a Christmas present in the mail today. It was from my best friend. (She always runs a bit late getting her gifts out. I actually like gives me something to look forward to. :-)
It was so much fun to open
I got a box of German chocolate. Everything on the box is written in German! It's so cool. I love trying to figure out what it says. :-) And it's wonderful chocolate to boot! Rich and smooth and creamy...I should start a 'chocolate review' section on my blog. I've been sampling quite a lot of awesome chocolate lately. :-)
Aren't you jealous? Don't they look delicious? Each of those little packages have six squares of chocolate. And I love the box, too. It looks like an old cigar box. For some reason, it reminds me of Hogan's Heroes. Or it could just be the mood I'm in.

I am really excited about this little book. "The Miniature Book Of Coffee"...what's not to love? It's a book of recipes. The really awesome part is, none of the recipes call for really unusual/expensive ingredients. It's stuff you'd normally have in your house. I'm planning on working my way through the recipes, one at a time, and share it with you. Recipe and all! Of course, with Lent looming up, it might be a while before I start but it's something to look forward to, right?

That's all for now. Wasn't that fun?

And because I am currently a little obsessed with learning how to play my piccolo, I'm going to share this video. This fellow is really good. And I so want to play that well!

God Bless!
