OK, so this morning I wrote a post over on another of my blogs about my favorite dessert. I wrote about crème brûlée, as many of you know would be my choice. You can read it here if you wish. Actually you can read it there if you don't wish, also. :p
Well, I had it on my mind (obsessively!), so while I was in Ruidoso on some errands, I stopped by for one. I was running close on time for meeting a friend, so I asked for it to go. She explained that it couldn't be to go because they make them in little restaurant dishes made specially for the crème brûlée. I told her I didn't care if it stayed in the nice shape, I just wanted it for later. She was doubtful, but she went to the back and returned with a takeout box, and as I thanked her, she opened the box and showed me the crème brûlée in the little dish with a strawberry in each corner of the box and kiwi syrup squirted very artistically around the dish! She had even fired the sugar on top, as it should be!
I said, "Oh, thank you! We can just slip the crème brûlée out in the box," and she said no. She told me to take it with me and just bring it back next time I'm in!! Wow! How cool is that?!?! Big city quality dessert and small town courtesy!
I came home and scarfed it all down!! Oh goodness, was it good! Only when I sat down to write this did I realize .... I should have taken a picture of it and how wonderfully presented it was!
Trust me, it was pretty and even better, it was scrumptious!!!
