I feel like Christmas vacation is just about over and I’m going back to school tomorrow! (I wish I was going back to school tomorrow). Anyways, we had a fabulous meal last night at my new favorite Sonoma County restaurant, Zazu! Zazu is 100% farm to table and everything on the menu is seasonal and delicious. Plus, it’s in like a little old house, which makes it all the cooler. We started out with a cheese plate, which was awesome.
I can’t remember the exact names of these cheeses but I know one of them was a mix of goat, cow and sheep’s milk and that was my favorite. On the plate as well was some local chestnut honey, stewed prunes (not a fan) and grilled bread. Faaantastic and a perfect pairing with some 2007 Barbara’s Pinot
For my entree, I ordered the sea scallops on top of black rice. Best scallops I’ve ever had a restaurant, hands down.
Pictures seriously just don’t do it justice, especially since the lighting was dim. This was the perfect portion size as well, with four large scallops. I was in heaven.
No dessert cause I was stuffed! I love sleeping with a full, happy tummy :). And speaking of happy tummies, get a load of this:
and I hit this spot up for breakfast before church this morning and let me tell you……awesome. Originally I was a little skeptical of The Red Rose Cafe
but it reminded me of this amazing little spot I used to go to in Tuscaloosa and the food was great! I made Adam
order the chicken wings and waffles just because it was chicken wings and waffles
. Why not?
(Texas boys like to eat. Apparently)
While I ordered an egg white omelet with mushrooms, bell peppers and cheddar cheese (covered in hot sauce!) with a side of grits and wheat toast.
Look at all the FOOD!!
It was a little out of control. But so delicious.
And then, AFTER church, we decided pulled pork was the only necessary thing so we found another amazing place, this time in Sebastopol called BBQ Smokehouse & Catering
. Talk about nostalgia for the South!
Take me home to Dixieeeee!
Ordered the pulled pork sandwich and ate it sans bun, but with a piece of cornbread instead.
+ sweet tea
And some baked beans:
I’m telling you, it just got me all worked up for the big National Championship game on Thursday in which Bama will DOMINATE Texas. Speaking of said game, this is a totally random call on the internet but I have to try regardless: if anyone has two extra tickets and wants to be my best friend forever, I will gladly take them off your hands. I would pretty much do anything to go to that game. Anyone, anyone??! 🙂
Okay, I swear I do more with myself then just eat although it wouldn’t seem that way from my blog (but heck, I’m a food blogger…it’s what I do). I’m about to go find a place to throw a large load of laundry in, clean my house and pull my life together a bit. Have a wonderful Sunday!
