Today, at Maison de la Truffe:

- gazpacho (an excellent variation, heavy on the bell pepper and served with a large slice of good bread topped with chèvre, diced yellow bell pepper and mild onion)
- rocket salad w/Parmesan and summer truffles
- scrambled eggs with black truffles
- linguini with asparagus and black truffles

and a bottle of NV Bollinger Special Cuvee.

Everything was very good. Scrambled eggs are my favourite way of showcasing truffles. It's not haut cuisine, but the eggs were perfectly cooked-- just slightly runny, still hot, with lots of black truffle-- and remarkably satisfying with the wine. A rich and wonderfully satisfying meal (and although I have friends who think lunch is as important as any other meal, to me it's still very decadent to eat this way midday Smile ).

I remember as a kid being really sad that I didn't ever have my tonsils taken out. The story was that when you were in the hospital, you got all the ice cream you wanted to eat. Oh well, I made up for it....... Cool

Indeed. A very cool spot.

Will be reurning to Newport tomorrow morning for my first attempt at stand up paddleboarding. Apparently we are going to circumnavigate Lido Island!

Yum. I've always been partial to "Oreo," but "Cookie Dough" is a close second.
We had a wonderful picnic lunch in Wallowa State Park, Oregon. A great baguette, Serrano ham, d'Affinois, (Chris Figgins sent us to the store.) and cherries from a farm stand.
Leftovers. Sauteed flatiron steak slices topped with caramelized onions. Mild cheddar broiled on top. Kaiser rolls. Garlic mayo. Caesar Salad. Cotes du Rhone. Need to grill more flatiron. The leftovers were as good as the firstovers.....

Chicken fajitas at a restaurant near work. There was a two-page list of tequilas on the table that made it tempting to take a half personal day in the afternoon.

I'm curious to hear about the food menu. Only thing missing on that list is some Micheladas.

I must really have my head stuck-up in wine and beer bottles.

I have never heard of Micheladas. Eek

They seem to be making a comeback over the past 6-9 months. I hadn't seen one ordered in a bar in years until last October on our way back out of San Diego from that offline. I've seen them bunches of times since.
I've never understood the Michelada..... A great Bloody Mary is my preferred morning pick-me-up. If I want beer, I'll have it later in the day. Straignt up!
