Over Memorial Day weekend I headed down to San Jose to celebrate my oldest sister and her graduation from a MPA program. Stephanie also flew in from DC! It is very rare for all of us to be together, especially when a wedding isn't involved!
On Friday we had a very casual evening - NSync and burgers - and prepared for the busy Saturday ahead. On Saturday we got pedicures then headed down to San Francisco for the ceremony at USF. The ceremony happened in a beautiful and historic church. From there we had drinks then headed over to Rich Table for a spectacular meal! We ordered family style, sharing all of the plates, and had #allthepasta!
On Sunday we hiked Picchetti Winery then headed out for brunch. Portland could take a note from California and adopt fresh squeezed juice by the pitcher. Just sayin'! From there we attended a San Jose Earthquake game. We followed that with some In-N-Out (double double animal style) and cookie ice cream sandwiches. Because #yolo!
It was a great weekend with family, delicious food and fun activities! If you feel so inclined, I have shared more images and details below!
Moscow Mule Tip: Use the juice of an entire lime!
Burrata with strawberries and crispy chicken fat. So good!
Squash Blossom + Mozzarella Curd Pasta
Delicious pork tenderloin.
The best salmon I've ever had! Perfectly coked with morels, tomato and olives.
My new friends on the hike!
