wolf house holidays

Birthday in Glen Ellen.
As I mentioned, I went with friends Linda, Yalda & Olivia and Dad to Wolf House for celebrating my birthday yesterday. It was decked in it's best holiday finery.

fireplace

We were seated by a crackling fire.

beet salad

Linda started with a special salad which included the magic word "beet". Linda loves beets, and loved this salad. What a beautiful presentation!

pear salad

I had an endive salad with Bosc Pears, Pt. Reyes Blue Cheese and fig compote. It was crisp and delicious. So inventive! I understand there is a new chef in the kitchen, Christopher Aiken.

chicken

Linda, Dad & I all ordered the chicken breast with savory bread pudding and rainbow chard. It was heavenly. The skin was crispy and the meat tender, moist and flavorful.

Olivia sings

We scrambled to get to Olivia's Christmas Pagent at St. Leo's. She was a cute angel singing sweetly. What could be better than having an angel sing happy birthday to you?
