He had me at gnocchi

Breakfast for two

DH and I went out for breakfast yesterday morning.  The goal is to go out for breakfast every Sunday morning, resuming a (very) long-abandoned tradition.  The opening of the new cafe where Maddy works coincides nicely with the new plan.

It was as yummy as it looks.  That panini has pesto, turkey and scrambled egg, along with very thin slices of tomato, mozzarella cheese, and potato.  Yes, potato; one of my most favorite things.  I watched as a delighful looking potato side dish was made using thin slices of potato and they will definitely be hitting my plate next weekend.

Food will take center stage again tonight as I'm attending an Italian/Mediterranean cooking class at another new-to-me restaurant.  A few of the women from book club have been to previous classes and gave enthusiastic recommendations.

"Clown barf" made me laugh. Black would be a good choice, or maybe just expand the darker stripes and narrow down the colorful ones. Whateve you choose, I know it will be a cute li'l sweater.
