Freaking windy out on the coast today. Oh yeah, I'm taking entirely too many pics of this bridge.

No time to blog

Well, between loads of work, being out on weekends, and simply nothing interesting going on, I have neglected this blog. Sorry. So, here's a pic of Point Arenas from Easter.And a seal rock outside Santa Cruz from last weekend.

For some obscure reason, the temple of overpriced food, aka Whole Foods had a 99c sale on organic chicken. And winter truffles.

So I put a $5 fryer with $4 of truffle medallions tucked under the skin in a 450F oven for 40 minutes and served it with the world's easiest salad: tomatoes sliced almost all the way to the stem end to make a fan; stuffed with slices of fresh mozzarella, and topped with basil chiffonade, olive oil, a bit of lime juice, and S&P.

Pretty good according to the guests. I think I add some lemon zest to the oil the next time.

About those butt wipes in San Ramon

Not to rile anyone up, but that's what it looked like today from Lands End Trail.
