On Sunday, we enjoyed a windy but nice day at Wooden Valley Winery. The day allowed the public to preview what winemaker Rick Lanza has been working on. There was great live music and lots of barrel tasting. My friend Eric with Big Nugg Barbecue was out there selling pulled pork and tri-tip. If you haven't been out to the wineries in Suisun Valley, make it a priority this summer! Click the following link to find out more about all the wineries in the area It is amazing that we live next to all these fantastic places.

OK, on another note, I didn't get my Daring Bakers Challenge done again. No excuses. I plan to bake it this weekend though and still post it (I know I said that last month.)
