Vacation In A Glass

I've been waiting all week to enjoy this:

Nope. Not these Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas - although they were soooo yummy!

A sweet glass of chilled Riesling. It immediately takes me back to a vacation Mr. G and I took to Santa Barbara several years ago. If I take a sip and close my eyes I can see myself sitting on the beach, reading a great book and soaking in the sun. Ahhhhhh.
This is the only Riesling available at Fresh & Easy. It was only $4.99 and surprisingly delicious. Very fruity and smooth.

Back to reality.
So far this week has been filled with friends and fun. We hit 83 degrees on Wednesday so I was able to fill up Little G's pool with a couple inches of water and let the kids (Little G and my niece and nephew) have a blast splashing around for an hour.
We got a visit on Tuesday from my best friend, Kim and her new baby boy, Christopher. He is such a sweetie! And on Wednesday night we had dinner at our friends Justin and Jenny's house. They made teriyaki hamburgers with grilled pineapple.

Another treat was this Chocolate Pie from Marie Callender's which was given to Mr. G by a co-worker who recognized his hard work and wanted to show her appreciation. Thank you, Mrs. Shepherd!
