Off We Go… Temecula, You Are Warned!

It’s that time again!  Temecula, here we come.  We had lunch at Falkner’s Pinnacle restaurant and, as usual, it was perfect!  The weather was cool but the wine was fine!

The post-Mother’s Day flowers were still fresh!

Oh what to eat said Sue and then she had an idea… Make the hamburger vegetarian and healthy,

Sue did the hamburger without the burget… Extra cheese and mushrooms

The special was pork chop!  It was really really good!

Did You Know? A pork chop, like other meat chops, is a cut taken perpendicularly to the spine of the pig and usually containing a rib or part of a vertebra, served as an individual portion.  As pork is often cooked more thoroughly than beef, thus running the risk of drying out the meat, pork chops can be brined to maintain moistness. One could also wrap their pork chops in bacon to add further moistness during the cooking process.

Paul had the special… The pork chop was huge

We stopped and tasted champagne on the way out of the valley.  Thornton has excellent champagnes.

While we where making the rounds, we picked up Donna and Bob’s wines which were waiting.  We had the entire back seat of the van loaded with cases and bags of wine!

…and of course, wine!

We decided it was too early to go home so we stopped at Kobe which is six long blocks from out home!  Manny made Paul a  special spicy tuna carpaccio.  Those jalapeno’s were HOT.

So very pretty – Almost to pretty to eat!

Arriving at home we watched a Hallmark Channel romantic movie, some NCIS, and Cheers and then crashed!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
