Tuesdays are my favorite of the weekdays, as they’re full of lots of things I love. First, a 6PM yoga class with my old and dear friend Stephanie at Heartlight Yoga. As yoga classes go, it’s gentle and relaxing and best of all, the most amazing stretch. I always feel a foot taller afterward, which is saying a lot from someone who’s already 5’10 :).
And once that glorious hour is up, we head to post-yoga dinner and enjoy a different kind of treat. There’s lots of great restaurants in the area, casual enough to show up to in yoga pants (very important). The other week we stumbled on a little gem in Rocky River that is the new love of my restauranty life – Tartine Bistro.
Although the interior is very charming, we opted to dine on the patio because it’s just that time of the year. Plus, it’s adorable! Brick pavement and lots of little white lights.
To drink, 2007 Chateau Gonin Bordeaux, rich with notes of truffles and chocolate. Normally I don’t remember what wine I drink, just if it was delicious. But this one was so wonderful, I just had to take the name for future use.
And then we shared:
Beet salad – braised pistachio, goat cheese, honey vinaigrette. Light and bright and refreshing, the perfect dinner-on-a-patio salad.
The ultimate show stopper – wild mushroom goat cheese, wilted leeks, black truffle oil. Since mushrooms and truffle oil are two of my top favorite foods of all time, combining the two onto one glorious, melty pizza is practically heaven on a plate. This smells divine, tastes even better.
So yes, Tuesday is my favorite of the weekdays :). A little bit extra now.
