Ojai weekend (part 2)

Breakfast boost: Needless to say, we were all feeling a bit rough the next morning, so waking to the smells of frying bacon and fresh coffee couldn't have been more heavenly.

Bubba’s hangover helper:
Fried eggs

*He’d taken the leftover crispy potatoes and added about a stick of butter...the fog in my head was lifting.

(Hair of the) Dog day afternoon: After a sufficient amount of grease, we decided to check out the town shops in the arcade = finding a mimosa at a nearby cafe(hair of the dog). But after walking 10 minutes in the baking sun, we hit the hippy market for a bottle of champagne, snacks and heading home instead.

Superior snack session:
Triple crème Cowgirl brie
Caramelized onion crackers
Hot salami
Sliced pineapple
Veuve Clicquot champagne

Naptime: While us ladies got some beauty rest, the men decided to prepare the evening's feast.

Fish course:
Crawfish cheesecake – a savory and decadent surprise

Meat course:
Grilled, rosemary-rubbed lamb chops - cooked just enough to retain a brilliant color and all of their juices.

Rosemary veggie skewers - the enormous rosemary plant in the backyard was put to good use, its strippped stalks made the perfect,rustic skewers.

Pasta course:
Spaghetti and homemade meat sauce was naturally sweet with Italian sausage and peppers.
Garlic bread- was greasy and fabulous. I could eat a loaf by myself.
