All About the CHEESE!

by jenna on March 27, 2010

Hellooo!

Hope y’all are enjoying your weekend. I know Molly and I sure are! Last night we went to my favorite restaurant here, Zazu, and it was nothing short of aaaamazing! We started with the best cheese plate that I’ve ever had:

There’s really no words to describe how delicious this was. I actually closed my eyes and moaned……two words: truffle honey.
I ordered some sort of chickpea creation for dinner that came with feta and a farm fresh egg on top:

So good!!! We washed it all down with some lovely Quivira vino.
There may or may not have been an impromptu dance party/sing along that lasted late into the evening. ;) This morning we hit up Willow Wood for some brunchie brunch in Graton. I had baked eggs with spinach and goat cheese with a side of bacon:

Plus like four cups of coffee. I’m feeling like a new woman now. Amazing what some coffee and bacon can do.
And we’re off to enjoy the day! See you laterrr :)

Yummm I live a good cheese plate! Are those marcona almonds? Looks like a fantastic dinner, not to mention brunch! Farm drag are so rich! I bet it made such a nice creamy contrast to the chick peas… Might have to try that out sometime!

What an “eggs-cellent” post. Oy, that was a clunker of a food pun if I ever did make one. Seriously though, it looks like you’re living it up (and eating it up) well with your pal. Enjoy it!

Egg’s I love them both ways. I love the idea of the chickpeas and feta with an egg on top. I think I will try that.

I love eggs. Eat-them-almost-every-day love. And coffee? I must have coffee, especially on week days, because I’m just much happier when I have it.

Annd I’m totally insanely jealous of the cheese plate. LOVE me some good cheese!! And nothing is better with cheese than honey… or maybe wine ;)

I am a CHEESE ADDICT!! Like, it’s ridiculous…I have so many kinds in my fridge now…mozzarella, cheddar, rice, dairy, goat’s, cream cheese, ricotta…laughing cow? ;) Good stuff.

Give me plate full of cheese and crackers and some vino and I’m GOOD TO GO :)

I love your photos by the way – they look really quaint or something…are you interested in taking pictures/photography as well? Or is that just “part of the blog” ?

I love the abundance of fried eggs. Seriously on my list of favorite foods. I love slightly runny yolks!
Do you know how truffle honey is made? It sounds really interesting.

The farm-fresh eggs are always so much better than the ones that have sitting around the store for a while. My university has a strong farming department, and the eggs that come from their henhouses … oh, yeah :)

Catherine March 28, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Nom! Eggs with goat cheese & spinach??? That is probably my fav brunch fare ever!

Gabriela March 28, 2010 at 2:41 pm
