In Kirkwood ....
And the night before it had snowed, 12 inches.
The traffic was light and we got there in about 3 1/2 hours. Went by the florist -- "Enchanted Florist" in south Lake Tahoe -- to check on things and drop off some vases for the reception.
We then drove over to Kirkwood. They were having a tasting for about 10 couples, including my YD and her fiancee. The tables were set up with each couple's name on it.
We were there early, so we tasted some of the beer and wines, prior to the appetizers.
They had Deschutes in bottles, and I tried the Black Butte Porter. It was pretty good. Then I tried the house cabernet and the house chardonnay, then it was time for the cheese and appetizers.
the caprese skewer
bacon wrapped scallops
Seared ahi wonton
They were all excellent -- so hard to choose.
Then on to the entrees ...
Salmon, tri tip, chicken (with a pesto and macadamia nut sauce), and pork with a mango salsa.
for sides: asparagus, red potatoes, cauliflower.
No dessert (after all, we'll be having cake at the wedding), but they did give us s'mores to make on the fire pits.
Guess we overcooked the marshmallow .. and then it fell on the ground.
And the view outside ..
and another shot of the centerpiece .. with a photo bomber.
