They’re the reason people had to start making up words like “awesomest.” They read The Chocolate Kiss & invited me to come for their meeting in exchange for chocolate. (Yes, I do work for chocolate. What? Don’t judge! It improves my quality of life enormously, let me tell you.) Anyway, check it out!
“Chocolate macarons with lavender white chocolate ganache and honey caramel filling.” You get the reference, right? Right? (All right, who gets it?) That may be one of the funnest things I’ve ever eaten, one of the pastries in the story brought to life.
Spiced tea cupcakes with orange buttercream frosting and handmade molded witch chocolates with handmade orange peel broomsticks. (So…you got all the references to The Chocolate Kiss in that one, right? Too, too fun.)
Here we are at the end of the evening, or most of us, witch hats mostly retired. (Don’t worry, the little one did not read the book and was off in another room playing for discussion of certain scenes. Ahem. )
A huge THANK YOU to these wonderful women for their invitation and for all the work they put into this meeting, and for including me in all the laughter and fun.
All neighborhoods should have a book club like this. Really, they should. I predict a 100% increase in quality of life for those that do!
