Last night I went to Ripple for a night out with my sister.  I have been wanting to try this place since it opened at least a year ago now – if not longer.   I am very intrigued about their grilled cheese bar, but luckily I studied the menu and discovered that is only available in the early evening and then again in the later hours of the night.  Either way, there were still plenty of items on the menu that looked tasty.   I have zero pictures to back up explanations, so I’ll keep it simple.  We started with some charcuterie which was very good.  I had a beet salad that had a lovely artistic presentation that was very much to my sister’s tastes.  The salad itself was just ok.  I think between the creme fraiche and brown butter it was a little too creamy – even for me!

We tried the hand cut fries with homemade ketchup, because I can’t resist and they were great. And then I had the cubanelle pepper agnolotti with chanterelles, almonds, sorrel and ricotta.  This was by far the stand out.  The creaminess here was perfect and the pasta and mushrooms together had the best flavor.  This dish was technically part of the second plates so it wasn’t a full entree.   We finished dinner with some cinnamon honey ice cream that was very light and refreshing!

I look forward to going back to Ripple and trying out some other items on the menu, a cheese plate next time or the grilled cheese bar perhaps!

In other news, I loved this tweet by Michael Phelps.  **Wow… Just had the privilege of meeting the person I’ve looked up to for my whole life!! I’m actually still in shock!! Got to meet #MJ**

I like to see that even people we admire and idolize also have their own idols that they are just as excited to meet for the first time!

The jury is still out on whether I run 4 miles tonight or not.  Only time will tell!
