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. I loved that the space had seating, music, and shade!! All making for a comfortable and laid back summer vibe. Now onto the food….
Have you ever seen a quinoa plant before?? Gorgeous! See how they used them in the lettuce wraps below-yum!
Yummy avocado halves stuffed with fresh ceviche!
Delicious Olive Oil that you can buy at Dusi winery 🙂
It’s always a party with the ice cream truck!!
I loved sipping on the fresh squeezed juice by Julia’s Juice- she sells at many local Farmer’s markets.
Check out the local bees over at TheraBee! bZzzzZZ
And sweeten up with some AMAZING gelato- such fun flavors…..I think tera was excited!!
