Love Me some Crème Brûlée

Yay for Creme Brulee

Photo-A-Day #539

Tonight Allison and I went to dinner at Andy and Rondi’s place. They are back from their honeymoon and have broken out many of the great wedding gifts that they received (you got a jump on us by about a year on that one). The photo above is Andy’s new toy. A Butane torch (Affiliate Link) for Crème Brûlée. But I am getting ahead of myself.

On my way home from work I stopped by the Big Apple (because I was avoiding the giant cluster that is 495 between exits 17 and 14) and picked up some fresh baked donuts for Andy. He was excited to get some of the tasty treats. I was excited because Andy not only made Burritos for dinner but scallops wrapped in bacon for an appetizer. My favorite appetizer ever.

Dinner was delicious. We had a “Burritotastic!!” meal. Yep, Andy made a fine spread of Burrito fixings and we made our own Burritos while at the table. It was a fun and relaxed meal. After dinner and before Crème Brûlée we played some trivia games on DVD that I got from Target for $2.48 each on clearance. Gotta love Target’s clearances they are insane. One game was called Gender Wars – Girls vs. Guys (Affiliate Link) and the other one was Pop Culture Trivia (Affiliate Link). Both games were set up exactly the same except in the Girls vs. Guys one the two teams were Girls and Guys instead of Team 1 and Team 2. The game was entertaining and deemed worth the $2.48 but not $3.00.

Then it was time for Crème Brûlée (Affiliate Link). Andy has been practicing making Crème Brûlée since he and Rondi have been home from their honeymoon (we got to see some nice underwater pictures from their scuba adventures too). And that practice paid off. I think it was a fantastic and creamy Crème Brûlée that I have not tasted the equal of yet. Derek will have to stop saying that I make a fantastic Crème Brûlée and give that honor to Andy. I got Crème Brûlée Butane Torch envy too (And I know I had a whole set and returned it for some work shirt, it is my own fault, but I do have cool gadget envy.). After the awesome Crème Brûlée (And the sugar on top made that perfect ‘snap’ or ‘crack’ when you put the spoon through it, Alton would be proud. Anyway after that we played Catch Phrase (Affiliate Link) and were stunned at each other’s descriptions of their given words. We played three rounds. Rondi and I vs. Andy and Allison, Andy and I vs. Rondi and Allison, and Allison and I vs. Rondi and Andy. Good time and a fun game.

We had a great time and so much fun. Once we can get out wedding stuff out of the front hall and have some room we will have to do up a fun meal and game night. Bring the Butane Torch.
