disclaimer: not us, because we were too cheap to spring for the 'rapids' picture. but this gives you the idea of our morning!
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!
