Well, not really a confession, just details of how my Monday went!
Captain and I made a day trip to Calistoga, and can you believe it - it was NOT for winetasting! Nope, it was to meet my penpal, Jenny, from Indiana (or thereabouts!). We "met" on a website called Just a Pinch. We started our conversation by talking about bread baked in a dutch oven! After a couple of comments we switched to messaging and finally ended up exchanging our real emails!
I was so excited to find out that her daughter was getting married in Napa in August and she and husband Weldon would be coming out! That meant we could hopefully meet face to face!
I got to Captain's house about 9:00 a.m. and we headed out for a quick bite of breakfast, as neither one of us had eaten. So we ran thru Der Weinerschnitzel and got a breakfast croissant sandwich.

The drive through Napa was just beautiful and so many wineries. A lot of names we recognized, some we did not. Either way we had lots of places in mind we wanted to eventually go to, maybe even doing an overnight road trip at some point.

I admit it!
Did I have those pancakes? Why yes, I did! And they were just as good as I remembered. MMMmmm... I did not stay on track, and I really didn't intend to. One should not feel deprived on special occasions. Otherwise you get resentful. So I enjoyed my day.
One croissant, one pancake, one wine & truffle tasting, and two brand new, wonderful friends.
