El Nino has definitely come to visit our part of California this month. After a balmy February we have been getting daily drenchings of much needed rain. Our weekend plans got cancelled because of the incoming storm so we are getting some inside projects done instead like getting our spring plants for our garden and starting some summer seeds in our kitchen window.
For anyone that was planning on attending the Farm Fresh to you Capay Farm Tour this weekend like we were. It is cancelled. Another event is scheduled for next month.
Here are some other recipes we are trying and ideas we are obsessing over this weekend
We have a bowl full of mandarins that I want to turn into this Cranberry Mandarin Bread for warm gooey fireside snacks
These clogs that I made fun of my friend in Montana for last summer and now realize how they might just be the best transitional spring shoe out there and they are on sale
Trying to dodge the rain for a while to get to one of the farmstands that are open this month to get our weekly groceries
Getting ready for our Spring Break trip to San Francisco and finding all the activities for the crew of kids we are traveling with
Obsessing over where and how we can find ourselves a vacation cabin worthy of Cabin Porn
Picture is from our trip to Skinner Vineyards & Winery last month. Their wood burning fireplace outside is the best place to sip wine and visit with friends. Look for our review of tot-friendly winery trips later this month.
