I’m sending the kids off to a Rocks and Minerals camp this week. Hope they learn all kinds of fun things!
Meanwhile here are some things we did last week:
Ate at a French bistro in Yountville – I had tomato soup and as my main course, rabbit
Bought pastries from Bouchon Bakery (it’s part of the Thomas Keller group). Lovely lemon meringue tart, fruit tart, chocolate eclair and what’s called “Oh Ohs” that wrapped chocolate cake at the back.
Made bread with the tangzhong method.
Food Truck Friday complete with kids play area (mini golf, table tennis etc). Tried arepas for the first time.
Lots of park and playground days as that’s what summer is all about!
