Biscotti Anyone?

Biscotti are a kind of  crunchy, rectangular Italian cookie.

They come in all flavors. My husband likes just plain as well as almond. I think lemon and chocolate are yummy.

We both enjoy dipping them in coffee.

Last weekend  I went to a wonderful annual indoor tag (yard) sale at the Community Center in Great Barrington, MA.  

This was the second year in a row this sale called to me. There were lots of tables, arranged according to price, like the $3 table, $2 table and so on.

My eyes scanned the merchandise with radar alert.  

A brightly colored container immediately caught my attention. It was a biscotti holder!  

At first, I thought it might have been made in Italy as the colors were vibrant and cheerful.  Wrong. It was made in China.

That would be perfect for biscotti, I said to myself. 

What table was I at?  The $1.00 table?  

You've got to be kidding, I thought. There was a tiny nick at the base of the container and yes, it cost $1.00. 

Sold! It now brightens up a corner of the kitchen counter.  I'm so glad I went to that sale.

Oh my friend, I have to say that I like brights more. I think it is my heritage - Greek and Spanish. I love to look at pastels, but my heart goes with bright colors. I have splashes of red in my kitchen. I love this vase, and it is perfect for goodies. I've never tried biscotti before, but have always wanted to. What a delightful post today.

That's a beautiful container. I prefer brightly coloured pieces; mostly I like them in cobalt blue but I have also bought multicoloured (with blue). See a pattern? lol. Hope you're having a lovely day.

I have found myself drawn to the same type of colors in the jar you got. This is a recent desire of mine.
I used to make biscotti for my babies to teethe on. Perhaps it's time to make some more.
