Several years ago I discovered truffle salt and almost totally quit salting food I was cooking so I could use the truffle salt at the table. Vince didn’t like the truffle salt but he was ok with salting food at the table.
The last time I needed to buy truffle salt, I saw this – truffle zest. I ordered it instead of truffle salt and oh, my . . I like it so much better. I put it on just about everything. Vince can’t stand it. He says even smelling it makes him lose his appetite. Sorry, dear husband but . . with Vince being Sicilian, he loves the nastiest of cheeses. When Chad was a kid, there were times when he would leave the table and run to the bathroom when Vince “cut the cheese”. Sometimes even putting it in a container, it still stinks up the fridge. So, for all these years, I’ve held my nose and kept my mouth shut, as much as I’m capable of doing that.
When we sit down to eat and I sprinkle the truffle powder over my food, Vince always makes a comment and my response is always “It’s payback time for all that stinky cheese!”
It’s funny because Chad likes it too and Addie says she’s going to throw up if we use it.
There’s also a HOT version of the truffle zest and I’ve ordered that one.
My eggs this morning with truffle zest. I think I could eat that stuff with a spoon. Seriously, there’s hardly a meal when I don’t sprinkle this on something.
There are two good things about being here by myself – but I will gladly give up both to have Vince back here. 1) – No one complains about the packages arriving. Obviously, I can handle his complaining because it hasn’t stopped me from buying things. 2) – I can eat what I want when I want. Vince likes to eat three meals a day, though he’s on keto and I think he’s doing intermittent fasting now. He wants breakast at 6 a.m. I’m good with breakfast around 10 and dinner around 3 and that’s it. This morning I had breakfast at 11.
Any meal is so much better when I’m eating because I’m hungry and not because the clock (or the husband) says it’s time to eat.
I may just have bacon, eggs and a biscuit for dinner tonight.
