Da Paolo Gastro's Crunchy Hazelnut

It took a lot of will and effort to leave the White Chocolate Yogurt Crumble on the shelf - I'm not sure if it will ever forgive me - and we ended up getting the Crunchy Hazelnut slice at Da Paolo Gastronomia.

It reminded me of a Ferrero Rocher sans chocolate… Mille layers, nutty nibs and wafer slivers but without chocolate. So it did feel like it was missing something, perhaps a handsome drizzle of chocolate fudge or a dollop of fine gelato.

But we had robust coffee. Coffee? Wimp! Come on folks, I'm approaching quarter of a century, can't eat ice cream and hot fudge just beause I feel like it... Anyway, the coffee really helped so all’s swell in the end.

Wouldn't it be neat to have a Tupperware party where we all have to dress up like Mad Men's Betty Draper? Mmmm

YES! Betty Draper style pouffy dresses. Oh, love the nipped in waist and flouffy skirts! Sigh. Now, now, where to find them cheap is my only question.....
