As we drove into the valley I had pre chosen a restaurant for lunch that turned out to be the best meal I have ever ate. Mustards Grill in St. Helena. The restaurant has gardens to the side full of their fresh vegetables.. eating gluten free isn't a problem because their food is so freshly put together.
I had the mongolian pork chop.. yup.. sort of a different lunch choice for me, but ohh thank goodness I tried it. Unreal :)
Then we were on our way to Calistoga to Solage. Hubs and I spent a week here years ago, and I've always wanted to go back. Having a romantic holiday with the hubs was great, but omg it was way too much fun with friends. While there you have to go for a bike ride ( bikes come with each studio. I haven't ridden a bike in years and Ashlyn would tell you I laughed like a 12 year old our first tour around. It was awesome. Book a spa treatment and have the mudslide. It's amazing :)
every day we found time to lounge at the pool and have a mojito or two, and we decided that we have never gotten ready so much as we did on this trip.. morning pre breakfast, post pool, pre supper.. lol. The heat does that to you! We weren't complaining though.. just hubs the day it hit 100 ;)
Another amazing lunch at French Blue in St. Helena. I could have moved right into this place..
a trip to Dean & Deluca.. I have no words for how insanely incredible this place is!
oh and one more crazy good restaurant, Cindy Pawlcyn's that is tied to Mustards Grill.. both places, incredible!
A visit and tasting at St.Supery was really nice.. their moscato is delish!
Travelling with friends was so good... so good!
