Lately I’ve been failing at blogging and for that, I am sorry! Here are my excuses:
It has to do with the fact that since summer started I’ve mostly been eating salads for dinner. Not salads I particularly want to share on the interwebz, ya know what I’m sayin’??
Exercising has come before my dinners this summer. Since I walk around Spring Lake after work on Tuesdays, go to yoga on Wednesday and Thursday evenings it puts me in a weird position to cook. Tonight I did have salmon which was excellent. I’m a very lucky girl to have a Dad that loves fishing. I get wild caught salmon frequently. 🙂
Those are my lame excuses but I promise once I cook a meal that is blog worthy I will be sharing! My blogging just might become more infrequent until I find more time…
In other Kelli news my friend, Jasmin came to visit from Germany! She was our foreign exchange student that we had when I was a junior in high school. Around March during our junior year she needed a new host family and we got the pleasure of hosting Yazzy until June. Since then my mom and I traveled to Germany to visit her in 2007 but I hadn’t seen her since. She is now a flight attendent for Lufthansa airlines and finally had a stop in San Francisco. We had so much fun catching up for 2 days!
We went to Glen Ellen Inn for dinner the first night. The restaurant is not far from my parents house and they have great service, yummy food, and delicious cocktails. I had a fuzzy naval martini that was super refreshing.
The next day we went to Korbel for wine tasting and then off to Russian River Brewery for beer tasting and pizza. RRB has the BEST pizza! After lunch we headed on over to Fisherman’s Wharf in SF per Jasmin’s request. We checked out Pier 45 which is full of WWII history – very interesting! After that, we went over to Union Square, walked and shopped around and ended the day by having a cocktail and dinner at Oola. It was quite the busy day but it was SO fun to visit with Jasmin. I only wish we had more time to hang out.
She brought us this bottle of Riesling from Germany. I thought the wine was great! Super easy to drink and very aromatic. It was a great summer wine. Plus, the winery is over 800 years old! I can’t even imagine an 800 year old winery. I love Europe! So much history.
