It’s the most wonderful time of the year…officially! I had the best time at home over Thanksgiving, we ate, we drank, the usual, pictorial evidence below! Countdown is ON; 2 weeks until I’m back for Christmas.
Girls dinner at The Pear in Napa, followed by annual Wednesday night out at Chop Suey with the Napa crew.
|Love these peeps – blurry and all!|
We hosted our family for Thanksgiving this year which was something new and different; 2 RVs backed into our driveway was certainly Griswold-esq. Camouflage was the theme, and everyone got in to it! Thankfully the weather held out and we were able to eat on the back porch with our fully camo-themed table-scape.
My two favorite things – cranberry sauce gets an update with dried figs and I made my new favorite stuffing recipe
|Mom’s birthday present – Crystal, Sparkle, and Light got all dressed up, named by our 5 year old neighbor|
|Ella loves her pink puffer!|
|The expert gravy makers!|
|Walking it off…..to breakfast the next morning|
Friday night we headed down to Yountville for the annual tree-lighting ceremony. Mom scored the perfect table at Hurley’s with a view of the tree!
After a glass of wine and the tree viewing we headed down the road for dinner at Mustards, always a classic!
The only baking I got in were these chocolate chip + speculoos cookies, recipe to come!
We tasted through our 2014 wines; everything is looking good!
The tasting panel approves!
As a belated birthday present I took mom for massages at Indian Springs – I’ve heard so many good things about the spa and they weren’t lying, best massage I’ve ever had!
Another week for the record books – can’t wait to do it all again in a few weeks!
