after yesterday’s hike and 4 hours of rafting the french broad river today, we are now officially SPENT.
it is time for some serious lying around — and maybe an evening showing of dark knight, which i very well may end up hating but i did drag josh to sex and the city so i deserve it.
cucina 24 was wonderful last night. we had:
– a trio of antipastis, including beets with hazelnuts, mortadella with pickles, and a fava bean/parmesan spread
– an appetizer of prosciutto, fig, and ricotta
– my entrée — black pepper tagliatelle with sheep’s milk cheese and truffle oil
– josh’s choice — mountain trout with lemon-asparagus risotto
we also drank some nice wines — a rosé and pinot noir for me, and a mt. piscah beer and grenache for josh.
right now i’m just wishing i wasn’t too self-conscious to snap restaurant pictures, because i felt the place WAS camera-worthy!
