Decadence: Complete?

     I bought black-truffle butter at the grocer's last night.  They only sell it in small quantities, which is a good thing, as the per-unit price is...well, like truffles: excessive.

     But how often am I going to have such a luxury?  The store hasn't had it in the past (as far as I have noticed) and they may not in the future.  And besides (she said, self-justifyingly), they were out of the good rye bread I usually buy and I had to get relatively plebian whole wheat* instead.

     Tellya what, just a little of that stuff on a bacon-and-egg sandwich is, oh my, so good!

     ...And it's just about morel mushroom time at the local/organic place in my neighborhood.  H'mm, I wonder if just a hint of truffle butter would go well with them?

...plebian whole wheat* " asterisk with no accompanying footnote; way to mess with our heads. (Truffle butter cause that you think?)

Sorry -- the footnote was going to wonder whatever became of Roman Meal bread, which was my preferred brand of square wheat bread.

Haven't seen it in the stores around here for years. Then again, I stopped looking quite some time ago, and switched to Pepperidge Farm rye bread.

Alas, not yet. Maybe today.
