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.
