Lucky Morning with Dulce de Leche

One of my colleagues occasionally places a mass mail order with Zingerman's, and although it set me back $37, I had to get in on the action. This morning I've got some of their deliciously dense raisin bread and what may be the best cream cheese in the United States on tap. But the thing I'm looking forward to most is the La Salamandra dulce de leche.

I must confess, there's almost nothing I like more than dulce de leche. Along with toffee and buttered toast, dulce de leche is a thorn in my dietary side. I'm going to hide this bottle of La Salamandra dulce de leche in the back of my fridge, behind the organic kombucha no one in my family will touch, and eat it spoonful by spoonful, straight from the bottle.

I'm starting right now.

ah, but we all know where it is now! next time I come over I'm going to send you on a hunt for what I thought I saw on the way in... spoons scattered in the yard.

Too funny! If only spoon retrieval were so easy.

I am willing to share my dulce de leche with you. But only one bite!

I'm sure it's delicious but what is it? Caramel milk?

I'm going to get a catalog from Zingerman's because it all looks sooooo tempting.

I found the butter you like at The More Expensive Store and look forward to trying it when my supply of Land o'Lakes runs out.

La Salamandra dulce de leche sounds like something out of Cervantes. Love, Mom
