Sometimes when Satoshi works on the weekends, I ask him to buy some dessert for us.
At first, I would tell him where to go, what to buy. But now, I let him buy what he wants.
It is interesting to see what he chooses...items mostly laden with fruit.
On Sunday, he went to C3 (c cubed) and picked up a Torta Sacher, which was an Italian version of the Austrian Sacher tort.
This was rich and quite decadent, lots of chocolate.
And a Pompelmi, a hazelnut biscuit topped with grapefruit mousse and pieces of grapefruit.
This was refreshing. I think this was my favorite of the two.
You can tell when Satoshi hasn't had time, he's running late, pops in and just grabs something.
Case in point...Wednesday. Only 3 days after going to C3, he was running late coming home.
He bought dessert for us from C3 (again! not that I'm grumbling).
He picked up another Pompelmi and a Torta di pistacchio con pompelmo.
The tart was almond with grapefruit and pistachio mousse then topped with grapefruit pieces and a sprinkling of pistachio.
When I asked him if he remembered that he bought from C3 on Sunday, he said, "I thought they looked familiar".
Still, I appreciate him working so hard on the weekends and also picking up desserts for us. (Thanks Satoshi!)
