My boyfriend bought me a black truffle for our anniversary…because nothing says “LOVE” like fungus. But seriously, love him lots for this – he knows that this was literally the PERFECT gift for me because I love all kinds of foods. And plus, now I get to share some truffle knowledge with you.

Sorry about the color flashing every once in a while, I’m still figuring out my new set up! Hope it’s not too awful.

Not a sponsor, but here’s where my truffle came from: https://goo.gl/TshsDy
