Sunday 23 December: 13 Desserts

Dinner with my best friends Anna & Vicky and an introduction to a French festive custom of 13 desserts.............13 components to an after meal munch............I counted Grapes, Satsumas, Figs, Dates, Raisins, Cranberries, Walnuts, Almonds, Hazelnuts, Fig biscuits, Chocolates with a joke in the wrapper, White Nougat..........the missing element was apparently Black Nougat............I didn't even know such a thing existed?................

Thanks for the comment. This reminds me of the Spanish (I think) new years custom where you have to eat a grape at each of the 12 strokes of midnight. Apparently, it's v hard to eat a grape every second so everyone ends up with cheeks full of grapes as they frantically try to beat the clock.
