Los Angeles is known for its year-round sunshine. There has been a few exceptions, but the lack of seasons can sometimes be annoying when you feel like hunkering down and making some great braised meats. We have had more rain than usual this year. After a sun soaked week on the mayan riviera with my family, i came back to a nice week in LA- although i was secretly hoping for some rainy weather. This weekend it got cloudy for a day, so i decided to plan my menu based on chillier times.
I’m having three girlfriends over on monday night to discuss a very important topic: bethany’s pre-wedding bachelorette weekend in Sonoma. I am admittedly manipulating this celebration to avoid any talk of hiring a male stripper or going to vegas. Classy all the way.
We aren’t going until August of this year, but since that is high tourist season, i wanted to get everyone together and discuss the itinerary that i mapped out and make the necessary arrangements- as well as delegating minor tasks. I can’t do everything. But i did find it appropriate to cook a nice meal and get our minds in the mood for a visit to wine country and michelin star restaurants.
