Kitchen foolishness

One of my friends invited me to a barbecue this weekend and I thought it would be only fair to bring something. So I made a plate of kind-of-crudite with carrots, peppers, celery and grape tomatoes with truffle vinaigrette dressing. (I love that dressing.) While I was shopping at the local Central Market, I thought “gee, I don’t mind buying the truffle oil they have here, but I wish I could get actual truffles.”

Then I turned a corner and saw this:

Truffles! And only $200 a pound!

What a bargain.

I didn’t buy any truffles today, but if I’m feeling especially decadent I might go get some and make some kind of egg dish.

Once home, I cut up the vegetables and assembled them to take to the party. Then I got a little distracted and started going art on my cutting board.

I was only a little late to the barbecue.

    Only $200 a pound! I have no idea why you didn’t jump right on that bargain!

    😛

    I miss that Central Market. The one across from La Madeleine, yes? It was just down the street from my apartment…up here, it’s almost a day trip to get out to any of the CM’s in the area.

    Ha ha! Well at least you can’t say there isn’t any truth in advertising!

    You’d think they’d keep the truffles behind a counter, under lock and key to prevent theft, not next to the passion fruit for a measly $2.99/lb! But then again maybe it’s meant to show what a great bargain the passion fruit is…

    That’s some knife. Kind of goes with the whole straight razor thing, huh?

    Your cutting board art reminds me of my old buddy Troy, who wore a romaine lettuce corsage to my wedding… ahh, chefs!
