What up, what upppp?
Guess what I’m doing? Roasting like the Middle Eastern Scandinavian marinade fusion spring chicken I am right here in picture perfect Napa Valley– in case you aren’t familiar Napa is the famous wine country north of San Francisco (also made famous as the home of Hallie Parker in no other than The Parent Trap)!
However, since my parents do not drink beverages of the alcoholic sort, this little familia staycation is consisting of a lot of sun, tennis, golf, and of course world class cuisine (more of that in the next post)!
In ze car and ready to go…for our hour long journey. And no, those aren’t my Pringles, they’re Nora’s and I am a poser and don’t actually eat Pringles unless they’re salt and vinegar-flavoured
For lunch we stopped at the Plumpjack Carneros Inn for some sustenance at Boon Fly Cafe:
Don’t you just adore that little red mug?
Well, I certainly adored it and adored it enough that my wonderful mumsy bought me one of my own to cherish and sip my morning energy out of
As for the food:
Man, I really love the satiating crunch n chew of a good and hearty sandwich, and this one was simple yet GLORIOUS since they loaded its innards with a massive pile of MEAT and some creamy gorgeous slices of fresh ‘cado!
Mummy’s sandwich was absolutely GLORIOUS as well- and since I have such a lovely and thoughtful mumsy she picked out a lot of the caramelized onions and gave them to me to load up on to my sando. If I didn’t have such an aversion to ordering meatless sandwiches, I would have totally got this!
Nora opted for the flatbread- also a simple choice yet executed beautifully, the crust was thin yet the perfect blend of chewy and crunchy and of course accented by the unmistakable tang of San Marzano tomatoes and a delightful sprinkling of Mozz, Parm, and basil
Verdict: Vair vair satisfied
That’s all for now folks, I’m about to head over to Yountville, land of Michelin-starred ristorantes! However, I am SUPER STOKED about my next Napa post- let’s just say a certain celebrity chef may have cooked our dinner last night ;)
Have you ever been to Napa?
When was your last family vacation/staycation and where did you go?
