Sunday Impromptu BBQ

Yellow heirloom tomatoes were the best
After wine club on Saturday night, we had some more people over on Sunday for an impromptu bbq.  S. and I stopped by the Brentwood farmer's market to replenish our produce after a free Lululemon yoga class at the Brentwood store (where S. bought her first ever Lululemon running crops; I'm such an enabler!).  We stopped by around 1:15pm, shortly before the market closed and got all sorts of good deals with many items over 50% off.  We bought heirloom tomatoes, zucchini and summer squash, figs, grapes and basil.  For dinner, we had heirloom tomatoes with burrata and basil, cheese plate, grilled portobello mushrooms burgers with caramelized onions, tomatoes, greens and blue castello cheese, salad with rosemary pecans and cranberries and the shallot champagne vinaigrette, grilled zucchini and summer squash, grilled yuzu chicken and grilled figs drizzled with agave.  We drank a nice 2007 Opolo Zinfandel from Paso Robles (thanks Sunny!), Alpine Duet IPA and Saison Dupont Farmhouse Ale.  Not a bad meal put together at the last minute!  We've been having so much fun these last few weeks, but I'm exhausted from all the entertaining.
I really like my new Lodge cast iron pan, only $15 from Amazon
