Sunday night I had dinner with Cherise at Boskos in Calistoga (fantastic roasted artichokes) and we sat and talked long after we had finished eating. She's off on a mission trip to Zambia at the end of January so I'm looking forward to hearing how that goes.
Tuesday I had my 'goodbye lunch' for work - a little early so everyone could be there. I decided we should go to Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen in St. Helena, since I'd really liked it the one time I'd been before. I had excellent steak with garlic mashed potatoes and for dessert a lemon flavoured pudding with huckleberries. I really got it for the berries, so now I can say I've had huckleberries. Tuesday night we went to Armadillo's in St Helena (our favourite local Mexican restaurant) with Maria.
We don't have anything else scheduled for the next week but we've got several meals with people the weekend we are with my parents, before we head off to Australia.
It's just as well that people are feeding us because I've been so busy I forget to eat (and if you know me at all you know that's just not me - I never forget to eat).
