Happy holidays

Here's a photo of the croquembouche that Jessica of Feed and Supply served at her Christmas party last night. It was stunning, and nothing's more fun than pulling your very own creampuff off a sugary tower.

Jessica is the
most relaxed host I know. Where I'm always racing around at the last second ("Plates! We need plates to eat on!"), Jessica comes to the door smiling and serene, even when she has a little bit of cooking to do. I always leave her house feeling contented and cared for. Isn't that a nice gift?

Here's a photo of J's tree, just to give this place some sparkle...

I don't know what those things are, I've never heard of them nor do I think I could spell them here in the comment section but they look awesome! What a mountain of treats that must have been!!

How do you pronounce croquembouche? It sounds like some kind of a russian food or something!

It's kind of like "CROW-cam-boosh." According to J, it means "crunch in the mouth," because of the way the choux pastry crubles when you bite into it.
