One each

I was very happy to find out that Café 1771 has the Chateau Group's famous Coffee Pie. It is the only pastry that my husband and I do not share—we have to get one slice each. Any description I come up with will never be able to do it justice, but think creamy butter mixed with mocha ice cream, and you have an approximation of its melt-in-your-mouth texture and taste. Topped with caramel and more cream, on a chocolate and nut crust. Sinfully delicious.

And the reason for the treat: we're arriving home this afternoon! Whee! I'm sure we had a grand time in Toronto (this is still a scheduled post so I can only guess), but the saying is very true: there's no place like home. I will be glad to sleep in our lumpy ol' bed again.

That looks scrumptious! Thank goodness the cals are only virtual.
I am wishing you a welcome home and hope the jet lag is short lived. Hope you had a super time in Canada.

If I ate this, I'd not be able to eat anything else for a week. But, then, it might be worth it. Lovely shot, Hilda...love the way you worked that fork in there.
