Wine, dine & it's all fine...


The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving were a blur with work (lots of it) and Macarune orders. Any time the bf and I had, we spent with Shawna. Here are pics, cause I really need to hit the gym.


Trip to Napa:


Guess where?


The bf: normal


The bf: not-so-normal

The weather was just amazing. Perfect day for Napa


Decisions...

Ahi tuna tartare with a touch of ginger atop a bed of seaweed


Duo plated foie gras


Seared ahi tuna


The bf's usual: chicken breast with crispy skin


Veal sweetbreads millefeuille


Shawna


Group shot


The bf


The girls

At the Mondavi estate where Shawna got a bottle of Moscato D'Oro. Next time, I promise we'll go somewhere else


Yee ha!

Hamachi-stuffed jalapenos and ahi tuna

Prezzies!
