Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Last week I had some vastly different meals.  The first was some ‘gourmet’ grilled cheese (or girl cheese as I always called it growing up).  Dave always makes it for us and he gets better and better each time.  You can tell by the nicely stacked pieces and the splash of ketchup across the plate…I think he has been watching too much Masterchef with me!

We also went to CinCin on Friday night.  We had some gift cards from Christmas and the wedding and it was time to use them up.  We had a great dinner with wonderful service.  I had ravioli of ricotta and parmesan with Burgundy truffle, truffle boschetto, roasted hazelnuts and parsley.  It was the best pasta I can remember.  And it was the first time I think I have really had truffle sliced upon something.  There are lots of truffle oils out there (many fake), but this was the real deal.  And it tasted pretty good.

Dessert speaks for itself:

 It was a chocolate mousse with caramelized pears and a pear jam.  Yum!

While we have had some nice eats, we have also been saving up for our Australia trip like mad. We really want to be able to enjoy the food down there, so we have been eating lots of toast, cereal, eggs and grilled cheese the past several months to save our nickels.  We’re almost there. This will probably be my last post until we return at the end of April.  So I will say adieu to you and you and you.
