The year starts on an awesome note.

For breakfast, I had gorgonzola mascarpone torta that I drizzled with honey and topped with a handful of Planter’s toasted, unsalted almonds “coarsely battered” with the bottom of THAT  – I’m not quite  into spicy, bold reds – 2004 Red Lava Syrah Reserve, which, thanks to Bawls, I finally finished!

I used about 100 grams of the cheese so I’d have leftover for whole day grazing.  Some Z sea salt and oil crackers and a handful of grapes nicely rounded out my start-of-the-year team.
