This weekend was great! I just wish it could be a little bit longer. We started off on Saturday with a hike in Samuel P. Taylor State Park. There are many creeks in the park where salmon spawn. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait about a month to start seeing it.
It’s also full of Redwoods! Some parts of the hike were sunny, some filled with trees. We were hiking for almost 3 hours. It was so nice to be out in nature! But by the time we were almost done, my tummy was rumbling!
After lunch we made the short drive to Point Reyes Station and ate at Marin Sun Farms. It’s a great little café/ butcher that has local, organic meats. The chef even grows his own veggies! Jay ordered the lamb burger. It’s topped with Manchego cheese, Chimichurri sauce, and lamb bacon (YES, lab bacon!).
I ordered a new menu item, Pig & Fig. It was fresh ham with Gruyere cheese, spicy mustard, and fig-thyme compote. It was the BEST ham sandwich I have ever had in my life. The salty ham, nutty cheese, horseradish-spiked mustard and sweet fig spread were the perfect combination.
Saturday night we saw Dark Shadows. Sorry Johnny Depp, the movie was pretty bad. Then Sunday we did tons of grocery shopping and Jay cooked up some great dinners for the week. Love when he gets in his cooking modes! What did you do this weekend?
