The Moose is Dead

| | Comments (0)

Most certainly a common sign of an uncommon economy, small business and large are closing their doors. It seems to be happening every where you look, tune in, or converse. I am now a victim. The Chocolate Moose has closed it's doors, ergo I am unemployed. All of the candy has been bought at a discount, the furnishings are almost all sold off at rock-bottom prices, and the kitchen will be "on the market" this weekend for a steal. Dismantling it was the most bittersweet task of all. Pun intended. Shelves of nuts, jars of confectioners sugar, drawers of dipping tools. The tubs of garnishes for chocolates are coming to my home to roost. I made them a new nest last night in my fancy kitchen. Probably the most satisfying part of "cooking" for me is the final garnishing and plating. We eat with our eyes first, other senses second. I love to spend a few extra minutes making what I have prepared look interesting. I don't worry as much about how it tastes (good recipes & technique remove that doubt) but I do take the time to make sure food looks good. Since winters' snows are still upon us, I'll be making some special sweets at home for a while longer.
