truffle shuffle

DSCN7485

Some girls get diamonds. Some girls get furs. Some girls even get gift certificates to The Honey Baked Ham. But last week I got a way better gift: a truffle from Eataly's doorbuster sale.

It was promptly turned into Black Truffle Macaroni & Cheese. There is no photographic evidence of this event because it was promptly eaten and loved. Find the recipe I used (more or less) here.

My boss' mom always sends her a HB Ham. And I always tease her for it. It's such a strange thing to get in the mail!
I missed out on the truffle thing. Lucky for me, since they cost a pretty penny! They remind me of mushrooms, which I can't abide. All the more for you tasteful people, I guess ;)
Also, plz email me your address so I can send you a super-happy fun time holiday thing! rhea dot kappa at gmail dot com.
