Gotts Burgers: I will miss you!

I’m coming to you live from the San Francisco airport. We had a fabulous time in Napa and enjoyed the beautiful wedding last night.

Yesterday after complaining about our noisy neighbors upstairs  (they were having a party for most of the night and threw their cigars all over our patio), the hotel was understanding and more than generous in trying to make it up to us. They moved our room, waived that night’s room fee and gave us a free bottle of sparking wine. Wow!

My husband was more than excited. :)

The hotel we stayed at was called The Harvest Inn in St. Helena. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and we’d stay there again for sure. Each room had a fire place with real wood. We always had a fire going in the fireplace.

Before our room move, we both had a massage which was lovely. We decided to return to Gotts Roadside for another fabulous burger. I can’t get enough!

This time I ordered the regular cheeseburger and stole some of hubby’s chili cheese fries:

The cheeseburger tasted very similar to In N Out’s cheeseburger. Delicious! I love Gotts!

Afterwards, it was time to get ready for Gregg and Mary’s wedding. We waited outside our hotel for the shuttle to come get us:

The wedding was held at Auberge de Soleil…..a beautiful hotel with equally amazing views. Here was the view at the ceremony:

As soon as the ceremony ended, we were handed a glass of champagne:

I ended up having two before entering the room for dinner.

The first course was an arugula salad with apples and blue cheese:

The second course was a heirloom bean and garlic crouton & pesto soup:

The main course was a filet of beef with potatoes au gratin and spinach:

The dessert course consisted of a mini chocolate flourless cake, peanut butter ice cream sandwich and a vanilla milkshake. Fun!

After some time the cake was cut. Vanilla cake with butter cream icing:

They also had red velvet cake as well which I had a few bites of. I liked the red velvet better.

We had a great time…the best part was when Mary, the bride, jumped on the drums and performed a couple of songs much to Gregg’s shock…he had no idea she could play (no one did) and she was good!!! We took the shuttle back and called it a night.

After a fabulous night’s rest, we woke up and grabbed breakfast at the hotel.

I knew I wanted another one of their fabulous homemade English muffins. They rock my world. I toasted it and put some ham and cheese inside and it got all gooey and melty. Nice! Some pineapple on the side finished it off nicely. :)

We got dressed and packed up and checked out of our hotel. We decided to make one last stop at Gotts for lunch:

Ahhhhh….back to healthy eating!!

Our flight is delayed but hopefully will leave soon. See you on the flip side!

What was the best thing you ate all weekend?  I don’t have to tell you mine….I’m sure you can guess. :)
