Before we got the keys to the guest house in Napa Valley, Debbie and I did a little perusing of cute stores, such as, Vintage Home in St. Helena.
Our friends in the hotel business rented a charming farmhouse for us to stay smack in the middle of thriving vineyards. As the six of us (three couples) all live in the city, and were missing barbecuing and dining alfresco…a weekend here was a great treat!
We quickly set the table with flowers from the garden in mismatched glasses.
The view from the table. That’s the Napa Valley Wine Train.
Almost harvest time
Jen made Grilled Figs Stuffed with
Blue Cheese and Wrapped in Prosciutto
Then we had
Heirloom Tomatoes with a Balsamic Vinaigrette
Grandma Winnie’s Potato Salad (made the day before)
Grilled Prime Steaks
and for dessert…Grilled Pineapple and Ice Cream
So, we got our grilling in!
Afterwards, we played bocci ball on our own court.
