Somehow, between the hours of eight am and six pm, this

And wine! Glorious wine!
Sorry for being so unavailable yesterday in terms of answering questions/comments. I was in the air all day! I’m going to email some folks over at Miraval this morning and check to see which recipes I can share with y’all. Hopefully that post will go up later—I just had to wait till Monday so someone would be in their office to answer me.
Last night Almanzo picked me up and we went straight for pizza (my request). For those of you that asked, he took care of Dexter while I was gone.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the trip:
This morning, I tried to recreate the wondrous swiss muesli that I had at the resort. Unfortunately, what I came up with was this:
Cold, mushy oats the same color as my carpet. Chef, if you are reading this, please help??!! Your swiss muesli is vital to my survival. I cannot go without!

Starbucks sent me some samples of their new natural fusions line (with flavors like caramel, cinnamon and vanilla) and I made a steaming cup in my french press. This coffee isn’t made for a french press but it worked beautifully!
In my Phillies cup! Thanks Tammy! As for the coffee, I loved it. I’m actually a closet fan of flavored coffee. I can’t say that too loudly here because the native Californians will come throw beans at me or something, but I always loved a little french vanilla coffee in my life. Plus, this coffee is STRONG. Just the way I like it.
I have a to-do list the length of a novel so I gotta get crackin. And, speaking of novels, thinking of having the Sarah’s Key discussion on Wednesday. Does that work?
