Inaugural iPad post = celebration of new things. Sometimes the surprises in life can bring more happiness than long awaited goals or dreams. Without sounding too philosophical, I’d like to take the opportunity to recap some unexpected foodie pleasures of late. (And I also just wanted to test out my new toy.)
Last weekend David and I went to The Steakhouse inside Agua Caliente Resort and Casino. We couldn’t decide which filet to order, so we ended up giving the Filet Chateaubriand a whirl. It was freshly carved tableside and pleasantly tender. Plus, it was served with a copper gratin full of fresh veggies, which were refreshing next to the rich, buttery steak.
Also this week, we found ourselves landing practically free tickets to the Paso Robles Grand Wine Tasting in Menlo Park on my birthday, which was a nice treat. My favorite was the Adobe White from Clayhouse Wines, but in general I didn’t know I liked Paso Robles wines so much.
Lastly, David surprised me with an iPad for my birthday and I’m excited that both WordPress and Epicurious released first gen iPad apps. So I can cook and blog using my new toy!
