Finding the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie
by runeatrepeat on November 20, 2011
I spotted a cute little deli for lunch – Wild Sage. But, when we went there they were out of the white pumpkin soup I spotted on the chalk board sign. Boo.
I decided to go next door to the fancy salad bar in the grocery store instead. The highlight of this meal is the Carrot Soufflé (bottom right corner). Ah-mazing. I’m considering recreating if for Thanksgiving!
I stole a bite (or two) of Ben’s chorizo empanada. It was really good!
He also got the Gaucho sandwich with lamb and chimchurri sauce.
Then, we headed to the cute little downtown area of Healdsburg.
It’s the best, not the worst wurst.
Finally, we stopped in a few wineries for tastings. Tastings are genius! I’m still trying to figure out what kind of wines I prefer so every time we do a tasting I learn more.
Despite my attempts to like more distinguished varieties, my sweet tooth is relentless and I prefer dessert wines. This Kendal Jackson Chard was the jam.
Mid-afternoon we need a snack and stopped at the Downtown Bakery and Creamery.
The lady at the counter highly recommended the Almond Tart. She said if she could only eat one thing from there forever this would be it. Yep, I can see why.
But, I’m not the biggest almond fan so I got a chocolate chip cookie and iced coffee from Flying Goat Coffee.
I’ve decided to make it my life’s work to find the world’s best chocolate chip cookie. This wasn’t it – too flat, kind of bland, not enough chips.
We drove around before dinner to enjoy the beauty.
While driving I opened up my bag of Chick Pz – a Ferry Building find.
It’s a sweet chickpea snack! Check out the ingredients –
We hit up Healdsburg Bar & Grill for dinner. Since I was denied pumpkin soup earlier I had to get it here. It is a Cream of Pumpkin soup topped with candied pumpkin seeds.
And I ordered the Cobb Salad for my entrée…
So I would have plenty of room for garlic french fries! These were SUPER garlic-y. I think they tossed them in a garlic oil because they were also super greasy. And delicious.
The waiter recommended the Peanut Butter Cup for dessert and I don’t have the ability to turn down sweets so I was nodding my head before he was done with the description.
It is a peanut butter mousse on a chocolate graham cracker crust with homemade whipped cream.
