Today's picnic menu

Today a sweetie and I had a picnic in Golden Gate Park, then spent the afternoon at the Cal Academy. I decided that if I was going to eat picnic food then it was going to be good, home-cooked food. Yesterday at Berkeley Bowl I bought something I never buy-- a chunk o'beast-- and spent the evening cooking. The menu:

Thinly-sliced roast beef on whole wheat torpedo rolls, with horseradish, blue cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, red leaf lettuce, and sliced red onions.

Corn and tomato salad, with home-grown basil.

Yukon Gold potato salad with truffle oil and crispy pancetta.

Bulgarian roasted peaches with cinnamon whipped cream.

Half bottle of Husch Vineyards pinot noir.
