So, my last post was Foodie Gift #7. I still have to do 8, 9 and 10 and there are just a few days left until Christmas. I’m not sure where the time went, but the last few weeks just disappeared. Because of this, I’m putting 8, 9 and 10 all into one post.
#8. Go to Jean Marc Chatellier’s Bakery in Millvale and buy a few chocolate croissants for your family on Christmas morning. Get there early on Christmas Eve, because the goodies will sell out. I place my order a few weeks ago for croissants, macarons, mini croissants and a Buche de Noel. Your family will love you for this.
#9. Take a trip down to the Strip District, armed with a little patience and a lot of holiday cheer. The Strip will be crazy during the next few days, but if you go with the right attitude, it will be a blast. Pick up a few of my favorites for last minute gifts – fresh salsa and locally made tortilla chips from Reyna Foods (2023 Penn Avenue – (412) 261-2606), the BEST marshmallows from The Pittsburgh Marshmallow Factory at the Pittsburgh Public Market, or a prosciutto end (the end pieces are really inexpensive but still the same sweet meat) from Pennsylvania Macaroni.
#10. I love local, even when it comes to alcoholic beverages. My choices? A bottle of wine from Glades Pike Winery
Even if you’ve checked everything off your list, definitely pick up a few of these items just for yourself.
