Good evening 🙂
I hope everyone enjoyed a restful Sunday. Around 5:30 I enjoyed a glass of one of my favorite wines ever…
I LOVE Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir. I still can’t believe I was there…and I even got the pleasure of meeting Julia! This Pinot Noir is incredibly light and easy to drink…almost TOO easy to drink. Lots of fruity flavors….it’s so me. I was very excited to see it was on sale at ABC today!
Other than a glass of wine, I did snack on a yogurt with some Udi’s…love that stuff.
And I helped my mom make shrimp scampi for dinner! This is one of my favorite meals!
Dessert was an unpictured piece of Swiss chocolate with hazelnuts! 🙂
Excited to lay low and read tonight. I’ve got a ton on my mind and need a little break!

shrimp scampi looks amazing, i need to venture away from my usual shrimp cocktail (thats the only way i typically eat shrimp) and try this dish!

Shrimp Scampi is one of my favorites as well! I hope your night is nice and relaxing =)

That picture of the vineyard looks so beautiful. I have never been to Napa and every time you write about it I want to book a ticket ASAP!

Love the Chobani snack, it’s my new favorite!
Shimp scampi looks delish and a great way to end a Sunday night!

The shrimp scampi dish sounds awesome! Definitely something that goes well with wine 😉
I really want to try the Udi’s granola too!

Ahhhh….Cambria Pinot Noir. One of my faves too!

Mmmm wine and Italian food — can’t be beat! All of this Chobani you’ve been eating has really inspired me to try some!
Thanks for the great tips!

Swiss chocolate is the BEST! I wish I still had some left from my trip there 😉

Napa looks gorgeous! I’ve never been but I spent a week visiting the wineries in Mendoza, Argentina and I never wanted to leave. Have a great night!

That vineyard looks absolutely gorgeous! Hopefully one day I can make it out to the West Coast. Lovely scampi! It looks mighty tasty. 🙂

I’m going to have to try and find that wine – I mean seriously how could I not want it – I share a name with it!
That shrimp scampi looks delicious…is it the recipe on here?
Thanks for telling us about that wine!

Looks like a lovely evening. 🙂

Ok…I know i have posted this again…but I keep thinking of you while I read my current book…Born to Run. I think of all your running problems, pain, etc..orthotics…and really you need to read this book. It’s facinating. Start finding a place to run barefoot! It might help…I sure am going to try it when I return to NC….on beach sand. The book states that a lot of problems we have with running are caused by modern day running shoes. Jenna…Read the book…its a GREAT one…interesting, funny, amazing stories…etc. Everyone should read it…then go run! 🙂

Swiss chocolate with hazelnuts? I’ll have some of that please!! I am hoping for a restful day tomorrow – today was super fun but very OTT. Lots of eating, drinking and being very merry! Ha ha. So fun that you were at that vineyard so very recently…great memories I bet.
JilSeptember 7, 2009 at 1:06 am
Mmm, that all looks sooo delicious. I love shrimp…or any seafood really. 🙂
Nicci@NiftyEatsSeptember 7, 2009 at 1:52 am
Your dinner looks yummy, I love when my mother makes shrimp scamp too.
Madelin @ What is for Breakfast?September 7, 2009 at 3:52 am
Your mum seems like such a great cook! Especially her seafood dishes!

I am really into Pinot Noir after you taught us about it in your wine series. I will look for the Julia Pinot Noir, I love the one with the fruity finishes!

That picture of the vineyard looks awesome!! One of these days I’ll make my way to Napa Valley!!
