Sorry for not returning last night—I ended up going out with friends and not getting home until almost 1 a.m. I figured y’all wouldn’t mind waiting till morning 😉
As I type this I am trying to hold back profanity because my internet just keeps going failing every two minutes. I have one of those Verizon aircards but for some reason it has just been malfunctioning this week and is driving me up the wall. Ugh!!!
Anyways (deep breath), yesterday’s snack was a yogurt with 1/4th cup Ezekiel and pom seeds—
And then yesterday evening, I met Hardy
for a bite at Zin
. I eat at Zin
waaaaay too much….but it’s just sooo good! Hardy brought this Chardonnay that “would freak me out”. It did.
I’m just going to say it, I really don’t like Chardonnay all that much. Hardy
saw this as a challenge and has been talking about “Chardonnay that will freak me out” since September. And I actually liked this one! Here’s a pretty blurry shot:
It’s from Salinia
and the winery is right in Santa Rosa. Not very oaky at all…funky!
Food-wise, I started off with a salad with the dressing on the side:
And then had the chicken!
I’ll tell you what. Chef Jeff Mall knows how to cook chicken right. He uses Rocky chickens, which are far superior to any other chicken I’ve ever tried and serves it with a cranberry chutney, green beans with bacon and mashed sweet potatoes. I NEVER order chicken at restaurants because, to me, it’s just something easy I can prepare at my own house. However, this was probably the best chicken I’ve ever had. Zin
knows chicken. Obviously.
After we ate we met up with a couple friends, went to a bar and then ended up back at Hardy’s
house laughing until the wee hours. This morning I had a bowl of overnight oats:
And I’m getting ready to go head to Bikram then meet BethT
and her hubby for lunch! It’s their anniversary so naturally they wanted to come to Healdsburg 🙂
