Eastside Road, March 28, 2011—LUNCH TODAY IN THE feedstore in Laytonville: bread and cheese, salami and focaccia. And dinner tonight with four of our closest friends, two from the Netherlands, two from right here in Sonoma county, at a local favorite hangout, where the spring menu of daily specials has just changed, offering roast goat on Monday nights.
That's what I had, of course; who could resist it? We started by splitting a romaine salad — Caesar salad missing the anchovies and raw egg. L. went on to sole amandine, which is okay, but I wanted the goat. It came with a sort of raita, sautéed peppers and onions, and "chickpea fries," what I would call panisse sticks: very tasty. And an enormous hunk of tzatziki, a thick flatbread.
Dessert? Why not a crème brulée?
