After an afternoon selling bread with these turkeys…
And a Carrot Raisin Walnut snack…
I biked home, showered and packed up to heat to Veritas Vineyards to meet a group of friends for their monthly Starry Nights event – music, picnics, wine!
Unfortunately there were more raindrops than stars in the sky
We picked up some wine glasses and a bottle
Took a sip..
And had to immediately relocate to the tasting room to fight off the downpour of storms : (
However, we had a great group of friends and played “pass the bread” for entertainment!
Followed by “pass the cookies!”
When the rain let up, we ventured back outside, but alas, it started to pour again. It was just not our night!
Eventually, with grumbling stomachs and many open bottles of wine, we set up our picnic on the tasting room floor
We brought the bread along with a tomato, cucumber, corn + garlic gold salad – which went with cheeses, a bean salad, a corn salad, grapes, watermelon, peaches and chicken wings
Here’s Matt’s attempts to get me making us a plate to share!
We shared a delicious plate of salads
A couple glasses of wine…
…and waaaay too many Great Harvest sweets. BLONDIES! Cookies! I’m not tired of them yet..
In between rainshowers we were able to listen to some amazing New Orleans blues and snuck in a dance or two.
Here’s to a long night’s sleep on a rainy evening!
