With the disappearance of the rain and the subsequent return of the delicious warmth of the 60s, we hit the road for a jaunt through the picturesque Sonoma Valley and the dream of a yummy al fresco lunch in Sonoma.
Our first stop, one of our favorites, was The Girl and the Fig. In spite of its very odd name, it is a wonderful French restaurant right on the town square and even has its own delightful cookbook on the market.
The menu, as appealing as always, looked fabulous so in we trotted only to be told there was a two hour wait. Ouch.
Our next stop was the Swiss Hotel and our mission was accomplished: outside dining on the back patio.
Baby Spinach Salad
And look what appeared in front of me!
What a great way to spend a sunny Sunday: good friends and good food.
