To Chico

After watching Coco Gauff defeat Aryna Sabalenka in the women's final of the US Open, Sharon and I took off for Chico. Sharon is attending Carmen's bridal shower on Sunday.

We are spending one night at the Residence Inn. After getting cleaned up and dressed, we dashed to meet Pam, Mike and Carmen at Strong Water. We had a cocktail and visited.

From there, the five of us wandered to the Red Tavern for dinner. The group split Crispy Brussels Sprouts [Served with Pancetta, topped with Balsamic Reduction] and Peach Burrata [Stracciatella Cheese wrapped with Mozzarella served with Grilled Peaches, Arugula tossed in a Peach Vinaigrette, topped with Mint, Basil and Toasted Pistachios].

Sharon and I split a Tavern Caesar Salad [Little Gem Lettuce, Sourdough Croutons, House Made Caesar Dressing, Parmesan Cheese]. For entrees, I had Steak Risotto [Medallions of Filet and New York served with Mushrooms and Sun-dried Tomatoes served in a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce over Risotto], while Sharon had Grilled Signature Meatloaf [Made with Ground Filet Mignon and New York mixed with Ground Pork Sausage, baked and finished on the grill, served with Green Beans over Crème Fraiche Mashed Potatoes, topped with Bacon Crisps and a Peach Chutney].

Back at the room, Sharon spent some time on the phone with Marlene. It was almost 11:30 pm by the time we crashed.
