We really enjoyed our recent visit with Jerry and Paul! Luigi instantly bonded when receiving a giant lobster toy with 4 squeakers, and treats.
Sunday evening after a Santa Barbara brunch and long drive home from Slow Bowl, we grazed on cheeses, salami, dips and desserts during the end of the Super Bowl.
Monday we began the "Foodie Shopping Marathon" with visits to the Savory Spice Shop, Williams-Sonoma, the new Olive Oil shop (Olive a Sudden), and Brandini Toffee. After I was treated to lunch out, I went off to do my therapy group, and the boys hit Trader Joe's, Bristol Farms and See's Candy! They are GREAT shoppers!
Monday night, we had good wines, salad, lasagna, garlic bread and dessert at home.
Tuesday, the guys were off and running to Sam's Club, Costco and Khols before some good Mexican food for lunch:
Next we stopped at Super Target and the Sheild's Date Garden. EVERYTHING fit in their luggage, and we had a leisurely dinner at Pizza Vino. Calamari, bread with dipping oil started us off:
Paul tried the home made fennel sausage:
The rest of us sampled pizze: Prosciutto-Spinach for Brad, Burrata-Fungi for Jerry, and
Gorgonzola-Apple-Rapini for me:
After dinner, we relaxed and planned future trips and visits! What great house guests!
