It was another fabulous Saturday night surprise, when sis and bro-in-law dropped in late this evening. And as much as I love love LOVE their company, there was a little, tiny itty-bitty, (actually not really that small) icing on the cake that topped it off.
Or should I say, chocolate mousse in a bowl that topped it off?
I am a chocolate mousse girl, through and through. In fact, I think we need a re-birth of this typically 90s dessert. It is sooo delicious, yet oh-so-simple. Sis does a simple take on it, that leaves it feeling very light and moorish, a complete necessity since chocolate mousse that is too sweet is just NOT the way it’s meant to be. Nor is it meant to be cream. It’s meant to have lightness, air, and yes, a mild sweetness to it. Which is why I proclaim hers, THE BEST.
I hadn’t had it, much less thought about hers or any other chocolate mousse in such a long time, that when I saw it outstretched in her hands when she walked in, I didn’t do the obligatory ‘no, you didn’t have to!’ that so many people do when their guests bring food to their house.
Instead, I was –
“Ohhh, thanks! I haven’t had it in so long! Here I’ll pop it in the fridge straight away…”
Tee hee hee.
A couple of hours later, and baby girl was indulging in her first taste of her Aunty’s choc mousse.
SHE DEVOURED IT.
Like Mama, like daughter.
Although the choc mousse was a pleasant highlight to the night, aside from that we had an awesome time together, the group of us. More music, more singing, more D&Ms… it’s always a fun and memorable night when its with those you love the most.
Tonight’s playlist included:
Baby I’m a Star – Prince
Are You With Me – Lost Frequencies
Jessie’s Girl – Rick Springfield (random youtube selections were trying to tell Hubbie and bro-in-law something…)
Do I Wanna Know – Arctic Monkeys
And due to some 80s raspy-voiced renaissance, Cyndi Lauper hits made a BIG mark on tonight too.
Sometimes I think, if we were fortunate enough to live right next door to one another, would we tire of seeing each other other all the time?
I don’t have to even think for that answer, really. The response is NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER.
EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER.
