This past weekend-- called the May 24 weekend- is the unofficial start of summer here in Canada. 'Cottages are open and cases of beer are consumed by hard working Canadians' according to this website.... or in our case, wine! A few choice glasses were consumed at the Peller Estates Food Truck Eats this last Monday. Think a vineyard party complete with gourmet food trucks, different varietals of wine and live music!
From the car-- in between two carseats as eight of us drove in together.
Quite a few of us purchased tickets (early as at $15 an adult and $5 per kid this event sells out fast)for the family day at Peller Estates, a beautiful winery in the Niagara on the Lake region. There were about 20 different luxury food trucks and pop up vendors serving up a variety of meals for even the pickiest palate.... think mushroom poutine, ahi tuna tacos, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and fresh oysters just to name a few tasty treats!
There were also 10 different varietals to choose from. And at 1 complimentary (5 oz) tasting and $6 a glass I didn't think it was badly priced at all-- and a water station with both still and sparkling #fancynancy
Of course I saved all my acrylic glasses for the pool this summer. Waste not, want not :-)
The day was beautiful....lots of blazing sun... thank goodness I listened to my friend Jenn (who told us about the event in the first place) and didn't wear jeans or leggings!
D and I split a strawberry balsamic ice cream-- soooo good!
I love C's expression in this shot. Imagine if someone tried to take a bite!
Such a fun day to start the summer!!!
Bring on the heat! (and a glass or two of our favourite bevvies)
