Remember when I talked about my pre-retoxing last week? Let’s just say I’m glad I did that because I very well could have undone all of that with the damage I’ve done over the past few days! That’s what anniversaries are for though, right? Just agree with me here. It was a really great trip and we did our part to eat and drink our way through wine country.
..and finished with perfectly poached eggs over smoked salmon.
There was a picnic lunch with a bottle of chardonnay..
..beautiful views and a smoked duck salad.
There was a wonderful anniversary dinner complete with amuse-bouche..
..a colorful plate of seared ahi tuna, fava beans & puree, artichokes, and crispy fried noodles..
There was even more chocolate and cookies..
..though the cookies didn’t make it to picture 😉
There were huge roses and gorgeous sunsets.
And the most appropriate ending to the anniversary trip—a beer sampler, vegan pizza, and baked buffalo wings.
It really was a perfect getaway. And we might have been sad to have to get back to real life, but this is just in our backyard now. Maybe another trip next weekend? Ha!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a date with some egg whites, smuices, and salads 😉
