Napa Valley Guide Part 1: Dining

We had so much fun in Napa celebrating T’s 35th and our 10th Anniversary.  It was just what the doctor ordered, and we returned refreshed, with oodles of wine, and with a bit more wine knowledge.

I thought it would be best to break up our travels in to two posts — (1) dining and (2) drinking.  Read on for a rundown of where we ate in Napa (and a few great places in Sausalito/San Francisco too).

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Banana Nut Muffins

My go-to breakfast options are whole wheat toast topped with some nut butter (peanut, pecan, almond or cashew) and sliced bananas, oatmeal, Greek yogurt with fruit, and smoothies.  However, some times it is nice to have a baked good.   So, I’ve tried out quite a few muffin recipes and have been combining what I (and my family) liked about each to come up with my own perfect little muffin.  As you will see, it is all real food.  The only sweetener is the banana and the maple syrup, the flour is whole wheat, and there are no yucky oils.

A Year of Blogging

It has officially been one year since I ventured in to the blogosphere.  Thank you to all of my readers — whether you’ve only stopped by to read one particular post or have read each and every one.  Blogging has been so much fun for me and, if I am being honest, it has helped me organize my own thoughts and has kept me from getting bored (or watching too much TV) during the girls’ nap time.  It may have also kept me from exercising during their nap time, but that is neither here nor there.

Breakfast and Lunch Game Changer

As I write this, I am dreaming of the carrot coconut soup I had yesterday for lunch and wish I was having again today.  It had organic spiralized carrots, organic coconut, organic tomato, organic spinach, cauliflower, organic bell pepper, ginger, garlic, madras curry, ginseng and a few other ingredients.

Oh, and did I mention I made it in two minutes flat?  All I did was remove the cup of soup from my freezer, fill it to the top with coconut milk (from a can that I had in my pantry), and dump it all in to a saucepan until combined and hot.  If you are taking this to work, there are microwave instructions for easy heating too.  So where did I find this magical concoction you ask?  Read on for my source . .

Living the Wolf Style: Adult Swimsuit Edition

This photo is almost two years old, but it is the most recent photo I have of myself with B in a non-maternity bathing suit since I was super pregnant with C all last summer.  Other than a brief weekend in South Beach (see prior post), I haven’t worn much non-maternity swimwear over the past couple of years.

Needless to say, I am in dire need of some swimwear updates.  I’ve tried on countless swimsuits and feel like I’ve finally got a few I can be excited about wearing this pool season.  Read on for some swimwear shopping tips and for my picks for this season.
