Two months without this guy wasn’t easy, but I’m so grateful for the way we support each other to take every opportunity, even if it means the other is stuck home alone with a needy cat. Thank you for coming home in time to celebrate my birthday @nickreinell. 30 was an epic year, but I’m a Taurus, so I’ll still try to top it with 31. ❤️❤️
#bistrodongiovanni#napavalley#biketouring Had a blast riding bikes from Yountville to Napa today. This restaurant #bistrodongiovanni rates right up there as being a top favorite. I love their Italian food, but especially get excited when i see flower arrangements like these. I’m truly in my happy place in wine country and was grateful to have time to show my friend Ana around. I won’t go into detail here about how it was to get there by bike, 😹 will save that story for my blog. Let’s just say that those glasses of #frankfamilywine zinfandel for me and #whitehalllanewinery merlot for Ana were well deserved.
I’m convinced, THIS tiramisu is the BEST dessert EVER 😍
Tiramisu: Fluffy lady fingers soaked in espresso layered with light and airy mascarpone cream, topped with dark chocolate chunks, and sitting in a pool of sweet creamy goodness 🍫
📍Napa, CA 🍴#bistrodongiovanni
Felt a little guilty not hosting an open house this weekend. Instead I took a little day trip out to Calistoga for a much needed R&R and surrounded myself around strong 💪 amazing women. We ended our afternoon with a delicious lunch from #bistrodongiovanni#calistoga#napa
A bittersweet dinner with my youngest and dear husband before I head off to Bangladesh tonight. Bittersweet because I’m going to miss them so much, but man, the food is so good here. Don Giovanni really has mastered the art of casual fine dining. Conveniently located 3 min away from the Evans bus depot, it’s a great spot for dinner before heading to SFO. They are one of the oldest Napa Valley restaurants. My first time here was at least 20 years ago (I’m aging myself maybe), before we had made Napa our home, when our waiter whispered “that’s the Mondavi’s over there, in that booth! They are regulars”) Fast forward to today, here we are, officially locals, and ushered to that same booth, introducing our 8th grader to the lemon cream ravioli that @bistrodongiovanni is so famous for. In the last two decades we have celebrated many family birthdays, anniversaries and reunions here, and it’s always a special experience. They just get it. #wherelocalseat#foodiesofnapa#napaeats#wheretoeatinnapa#carbloading#lemonravioli#napavalley#bistrodongiovanni#visitnapavalley@visitnapavalley
