We got together with our friends Julia and Bruce over the weekend. As you might recall, Julia and I met through the world of blogging and since have become very good friends. We have a lot in common and truly enjoy each other’s company. Julia’s blog is http://retirementrvdream.wordpress.com/. If you haven’t “met” Julia yet, you should stop by and say hi. Julia is a fabulous cook as well and there is always something scrumptious cooking in her kitchen. You will love what’s cooking in Julia’s kitchen too.
We started the day off with some wine tasting and officially introduced Bruce and Julia to our favorite local winery, InVINtions Video #17 – INVINtions, A Creative Winery, though they have enjoyed many a bottle of their wines with us at our house already. After wine tasting, we headed back their new “home”. Bruce and Julia have decided to hit the road and they now take their home with them everywhere they go. Their new “home” is an RV.
As far as RV’s go, this is top of the line and is both spacious and luxurious. I was amazed at the kitchen too. It is a full-sized, fully equipped kitchen that you would find in a house. Julia said Larry and I were their first dinner guests in their new “home”. We are honored. Julia prepared a fantastic steak fajita dinner for us, that we enjoyed outside at the picnic table before the rain hit. Though Julia’s new kitchen is amazing, she actually prepared our meal outside on the grill this time, which was perfectly OK with us. 🙂 Here she is grilling up the steaks to perfection along with some onions and poblano chilies.
Bruce and Julia’s new home.
Julia’s actual kitchen. It is hard to believe this is a kitchen in an RV, but it is.
Slicing the steak. It was cooked to absolute steak perfection too. It just melted in our mouths.
And voila! The fajitas are a culinary masterpiece. I loaded them up with some of Julia’s fantastic guacamole as well. For dessert, we had some sliced Palisade peaches Palisade Peach Salsa that Julia had seasoned with garam masala. That was a treat I never would have thought of, but they were so good!!!!!!
Once again, thank you Bruce and Julia for your delicious hospitality and for all the good times. We look forward to many, many more ahead.
Life is short. Do what makes you happy and don’t worry about the rest. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
