MMMMMMmmmmmonday: Earth Day Food & Wine Festival

Amongst a busy week and weekend of events, Chanda and I had the opportunity to visit with family and friends who were in town! Chanda enjoyed doing some wedding planning with her sister and exploring slo while I attended the Earth Day Food and Wine Festival– wow was it yummy!! I couldn’t help but show you some of the delicious bites for today’s MMMmmmmonday!! The festival happens every April and rotates venues every three years. This year Castoro Cellars hosted. It took place in a meadow that was embracing the rustic earth/farming theme and perfectly situated under some gorgeous sycamore canopies. IMG_0097IMG_0107IMG_0084IMG_0058I loved that the space had seating, music, and shade!! All making for a comfortable and laid back summer vibe. Now onto the food….
