It´s the start of gift giving season ...
Its an easy peasy occassion when it comes to giving gifts where I came from. In most cases, the default gift can be in form of cash and all is well. In Germany, it is a different ballgame altogether. Thoughts go into it, hence challenging yourself constantly how well you know the person you´re giving the gift too. Tomorrow, we will be visiting a couple friend in another part of Germany. Prior to this, we would defaultly bring a bouquet of flower, some chocolates and sometimes a nice tin of gourmet biscuit. But I was told the madame of the house is on diet so, no chocolate and no biscuit please! lol. During their last visit to our place, I noticed something. They both loveeee red wine. So off I went this morning to go pick up our favourite type of red. The famous Barolo which the Italians loves drinking above anything else but it is something that can´t be drink regularly because a bottle of good Barolo can set you back quite a bit of $$$. I paired them with Truffle laced hard cheese, also from Pietmont area in Italy. Festive air is here so I´ve packed a white Amarylis along.
Its weekend so have a lovely weekend everyone!
