Tonight I got invited to a traditional New England lobster boil over at Merriam Vineyards.
The winery is near Healdsburg, right off of 101, and I was pretty excited to head over there because I’d never been nor tasted any of their wines.
I was also pretty excited to see that they had Cab Franc, which is my very favorite varietal but can be hard to find. If you like Cabernet Sauvignon, try Cabernet Franc next time. To me, it has a little bit more spunk to it. It tastes like Grapes of Wrath….the book, that is. I don’t really know what I mean or where I’m going with that, but just roll with it. Think sweat and leather. In a good way. Mmm yes.
Everything was so delicious tonight and I pretty much ate my body weight in lobster, corn, bread, potato salad, regular salad and blueberry pie. Yes, BLUEBERRY PIE! Gosh, I haven’t had that in ages. Worth every single calorie, I tell you.
Yes, I ate that lobster. His name was Spike. He tasted delicious.
Especially when dunked in buttahhhhhhh
The grand finale….(prepare to swoon)
I ate all my pie AND finished the boyfriend’s. I was eyeing the woman’s crust from across the table but tried to keep my manners.
Blueberry pie. Seriously underrated. I have the fruit dessert itch now…perhaps I shall bake a cobbler next week!
….rolling into bed with elastic waist pants. Ohhhh yeahhhhh
