I'm drinking a great Belgian style ale and munching on some pistachios and thinking about chocolates. The result is that I'm totally wired right now. I want to go to bed, but I'm geeked about spending the whole day tomorrow in the kitchen. Thank God for avocations! I feel like I'm 13 again and tomorrow I'm heading to Cedar Point.
I think I'm changing my plans. I'll finish up the two chocolates I started tonight, and then tomorrow I'm making the peppermint bark along with some chocolate covered raspberry truffles. I'm going to whip up some raspberry ganache for making some regular truffles, plus I'm planning on making rochers, which are almond candies robed with milk chocolate.
Should be fun, and I don't think I'll be able to sleep for a few hours since I'm so pumped for tomorrow. Giddy up!
I hope I have nights like this when I'm 90.
Pictures will be forthcoming.
