Aunt Larbs and Uncle Matt came to visit us this past weekend. We had a blast eating and drinking (per usual) and keeping Mazen at the center of attention.
They arrived late on Friday night, and Matt and I had pizzas underway.
Whole wheat crust with two kinds of cheese.
One with shitake mushrooms, lamb sausage, tomato sauce and fontina
And the other with veggies and homemade mozzarella
Salads on the side!
We all shared this beer, which is now on my top 10 beer list. It was incredible!!
Saturday we enjoyed French toast, went running in shifts and came back to a make-your-own lunch bar with everything in our fridge
Our afternoon was spent wine tasting –
We went to Stinson first and really enjoyed their wines
Matt and I bought the Sugar Hollow Red
Next we went to White Hall (our first visit there) and were blown away by the wines!
Matt and I bought the Chardonnay, Cab and Petit Verdot, which was our favorite
Sleepy head napped most of the visit but then came out to play!
Larbs has been wanting to go to Zocalo for YEARS and we made it the highlight of this trip. We got the usual for dinner: the fritters, scallops and relleno pepper (my favorite entrees in town!) and threw in a wild card this time: the rockfish.
Larbs actually liked the scallops and their carrot-vanilla sauce the best!
The next morning:
Brunch at Commonwealth! Our favorite brunch spot in town.
I had the lobster and cod cakes eggs benedict, which were amazing. Salad on the side
I gave one of my stacks to Matt in exchange for some of his entrée – the Caribbean Veggie Benedict
Another amazing few days of food.
And another a-MAZEN weekend!
