What I ate: October 14, 2011

Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese English muffin. With 3 slices of bacon, an organic egg, Cabot cheddar cheese on a Barowski's wheat English muffin. This was a decidedly less attractive version of the dish, unlike my nearly perfect one, earlier.

Dinner: Filet mignon steak, baked potato and broccoli. With Gianni Russo Montepulciano D'Abruzzo.

Over the summer I cheated on my salt and olive oil rubbed baked potato and cooked it in the microwave. Now that it's cool again I cooked it in the oven, as a baked potato should be, and it was so much better! Well worth the hour in the oven. Served with Vermont Butter and Cheese cultured butter and sour cream.

Dessert: 2 strips (6 small squares) of Green and Black's cherry dark chocolate bar. And Aguaribay malbec.
