You Make Me Smile...
there are a good handful of things that truly make me smile...being with my boys(priceless), a good friend's company, rich dark chocolate, a loud and aggressive heavy metal show, a beautiful serene sunset, a cool kick-ass sleek kitchen, skiing some wicked snow on a wicked steep run, and silky, smooth, sensual foie gras! In various forms...pan roasted, poached, fire roasted or in a luscious chilled sexy torchon such as this, they all are a huge delight. This shot is like an addiction...for those that love it...they cant get enough of it. For those that don't, they don't get it. Isn't it just beautiful???
