Is it just me, or is the month of May on a FAST track? Here it is Tuesday once again and as I look back at my last couple of post, they are all T-days with Elizabeth. Makes me wonder...."Just what have I been doing with my time????"
This last weekend was Mother's Day, here in the States. DH and I attended a Mother's Day Brunch at our favorite winery , Le Cuvier. It was a beautiful day with warm sunshine and just a slight breeze.
They served the brunch out on the patio, under a huge old oak tree.
(I know that looks like a ton of wine glasses, but they set a glass for each wine and for plain or sparling water)
I forgot my camera, at home on the bar, so I took pictures with my cell phone.......thank goodness for technology!!! Here people are beginning to arrive, the brunch was at 11 a.m., we were each greeted with a spectacular Chardonnay wine.
The whole menu was centered around Chardonnay wines from the owners wine library. The oldest, served with the first course was a 1997..........just fantastic in color and flavors. The chef, for the day, was superb and the food just melted in your mouth.
This is the menu, sorry about the crumpling it got in my purse......LOL
The NV "Select" Chardonnay means that this wine is no longer available to the public or to the wine club.
This is the back of the menu and talks about the wines. I don't know who writes about the wines, but they have a flare with the words.......always enjoy reading them.
Beautiful flowers graced the tables.
We are on a flat rate for our water, so this really doesn't make sense. I don't know anybody who waters EVERYDAY, and even if there are some who do......what is to keep us from running the water LONGER on our day to water.....to make it to the next day we can water??? I mean it is only every other day......LOL Bakersfield is on something like this too......it's a joke! If they really want people to stop wasting water they will have to put meters on the houses, businesses, and farms AND also enforce this letter. I'm not saying I want a water meter on my house, but we will abide by these new rules........I don't really want to give the City $500!!!
I have to laugh at the people who say ( in comments on the 'net) that everybody is California needs to dump their swimming pools........LOL 1. not all of us have a pool 2. the water in the pool stays there all year, rarely ever is a pool refilled.........no we keep water running for the fish, golf courses and for the fracking that is going on in this state!!!!!! Katy bar the door if we put it on our grass......LOL
Okay! I am off my soap box now.
I'm linking up with Elizabeth and the T-gang to see what's in everyone else's cup this week.
BBQ competition time is upon us, our first is this weekend, here in Bakersfield!!! Pictures to follow next week..............
