These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Crème brûlée

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!!!


  1. That's o.k. I didn't want to see a picture or else I would have wanted some myself! Now I really want to try it! Love Di ♥

  2. Creme brulee to go! I always think it has to be eaten in the restaurant because they light it on fire at the table in some places.

  3. yes, it is absolutely better that way, but in a pinch ....

  4. Creme Brulee is my #1 favorite dessert too!!!!!!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
