Monday I took a leisurely drive up to Napa Valley to see the mustard in the vineyard and to walk with a dear friend. I passed some Belted Galloway cows or better known as Oreo Cows!!!
Since I was early in meeting my friend, I decided to head on up to Yountville as a "Krwa-son" had my name on it!
While I was at Bouchon, I decided to get a couple of croissants to share with family and friends. After thoroughly enjoying the buttery, moist, light, flakey roll, I placed the bag with the remainder of them in the far back of the car so I wouldn't be tempted to nibble as I drove.
My friend, Helen told me that the mustard had just opened up last week and it is beautiful. Actually it was a lovely warm winter's day. We had a delicious lunch and then walked around downtown Napa and past the Victorian homes called painted ladies and through the park.
We stopped by the Gallery where Helen shows her jewelry and hand dyed silk scarfs. She is incredibly talented, brilliant, creative and has a heart of gold......
This morning, I woke up early and ran into the kitchen and grabbed a perfect croissant and ran back to have breakfast in bed while Mika gave me the stank-eye.
Two lovely days after a tough month! Thank you Helen......
