  1. GORGEOUS photo! My gosh, good enough to eat!
    I'm afraid a truffle would be totally wasted on me...I'm going to stop by Whole Foods though for some of the wine infused REAL cheese spread, also a blue cheese one...did you try those at all? Really yummy...I'm not buying any since I'd eat the whole thing before reaching home.


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
