Food Memory: Mousse and Cloth Napkins


My friend M and I tend to be willing to splurge on really wonderful food every once in a while, even if it’s not necessarily the smartest way to spend money. For my birthday, one year, she and I shared an evening at a tapas restaurant, trying many different small foods and then eating this amazing chocolate mousse for dessert. Dinner out doesn’t have to be this fancy to make a wonderful memory, but the fact that she wouldn’t hear of me paying and the comfort of knowing I would buy such a lovely meal for her someday made it such a lovely memory. Occasional splurges, when the money is there, can be sweet indeed.
