A Chefs Garden

It isn't often I get to enjoy, a day out in the middle of the week, with a girlfriend. This week was one of the rare occasions I got to spend with my girlfriend L. After a quick coffee stop we headed out towards Yountville to Mustards Restaurant. Our mission was to look over the Chefs garden attached to the restaurant. The pictures above will give you a good idea what the garden looked like (unfortunately taken with my phone camera and not the good camera). It is enjoyable to see a larger restaurant like Mustards use produce straight from the garden to the table. After our tour we headed over to Dean Dulca and went isle by isle through the shop. I could spend far too much money in there! I left with some guava syrup and a treat from the bakery for L and I to share (before lunch of course). Then we headed downtown and ate lunch, which consisted of a Reuben sandwich (which we shared) and a goat cheese/vegetable pizza. Once we refuelled we went and hit the streets for a little more window shopping. A most enjoyable day that I hope we can repeat again.
