A Matter Of Size

I have finally found a chocolate truffle that's the perfect size for the limits of my appetite. Amazingly, the chocolate is made by Lindt and, as you can see from the photo, one fits perfectly in the palm of my hand.

(Go ahead, size queens, click the images.)


While we're on the subject of size and quality, Meson Salvador re-opened after an 8-week renovation project that left nothing of the original restaurant except the amazing staff and food.

Elena's birthday was in November but we decided to extend the celebration, so we had another birthday dinner at Meson Salvador Thursday night. Our waiter, David, gave Elena the royal treatment. She ordered ribs and he made sure they were super-sized.


After dinner, Elena asked for a teensy bit of cinnamon ice cream for dessert. David got carried away but provided a size-appropriate spoon.


Did you know that cinnamon is considered (by some) to be an aphrodisiac? Elena happened to mention that. It was news to the rest of us. We all dipped our spoons in her ice cream.

      I'm not telling. But Tynan doesn't know it worked for Elena, so what's the use?!?

  2. I adore chocolate truffles. If I had 2 that size, perhaps I could share, but no guarantees! I wonder if you can get truffles with cinnamon?

      I can get and have gotten truffles with cinnamon, but not that size. (To be honest, I think that just looked like a Lindor truflle and was really hollow!)

  5. I have a weakness for chocolate truffles and the one in your photo might finally be big enough to satisfy me.

      I really don't know why I still speak to you! Well, maybe one reason is because it means more chocolate for me!

      By my (male) calculations that truffle was at least 40 feet in diameter.
