Day 292, Tuesday, I had two scrambled eggs for breakfast. I had a lunch date to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and went to 34th Street Cafe. I had a salad, Chef or Cobb, I can’t remember which it was called, but had them leave off the ham. Not a ham fan. I spent dinner with friends at Cafe Josie’s Wine Me Dine Me dinner, my splurge for the month. The food was paired with Arygle Wines as follows:
Blue Crab Mac & Cheese, with Gruyere and White Truffle Oil – Argyle Brut 2006
Mesquite Smoked Sockeye Salmon with Dijon Hollandaise and Rosemary Roasted New Potatoes – Argyle Nuthouse Chardonnay 2006
Seared Jumbo Sea Scallop with Hazelnut Pesto on Sundried Tomato Puree and Micro Greens – Argyle Nuthouse Pinot Noir 2006
Pork Wellington, Pork Tenderloin baked in Pastry with Dried pears, Walnuts, Spices and Roquefort with Wine Sage Cream Reduction – Argyle Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2008.
Wow, everything was perfect and I was glad to have been reintroduced to this wine after quite some time, it was fabulous. We skipped out on the dessert course because we were full.
After a good 3 mile walk, I managed to skip breakfast again. The effect of which is not lost on me, as I was starving by lunch and had no willpower to eat sensibly. I get it. Chicken enchiladas verde at Mi Madres. After getting home later than I had planned from the Triangle Farmer’s Market (I ran into so many friends there!) and having no dinner plan, I made quesadillas with flour tortillas from the Barton Creek Market and Full Quiver Pepper Jack.
