Had a marvelous time last night with good friends… drank wine and ate a great NT dinner… sprouted wheat pizza with raw cheese, organic sauce, organic mushrooms, olives, onions and Niman ranch bacon, buckwheat pasta with grilled veggies and homemade pesto, casaba melon straight from the garden, coconut cream corn, green salad with balsamic vinaigrette, and loads of good local wine, Ironstone Vineyards Merlot. It was rich with fruit, blackberries and cherries, and had a very smooth finish. We sat in their un-airconditioned straw bale house (when I got there, outside temp was 102 degrees F. Inside, it was 76 F. (that’s right, NO airconditioning, just a couple of open windows.) When it cooled off, we jumped into their wood-fired redwood hot tub, drinking cool well water and telling tall tales. We talked about everything, from death to taxes to spirit possession to Rudolph Steiner. Whatta night, to talk to people that speak the same language! I was there til 1 AM, and had to get up and go to work today. Boy am I bushed but happy. They are beautiful people, and a grand time was had by all.
