Fondue, Wine and Lighting

Last night we ate an amazing meal 
at Skati's.  We met the chef, Ian, when he came 
to investigate the bottle of wine that we brought.
It was a wonderful 1986 Bordeaux.
The dessert was to die for too--pannacotta
with lemon curd.  This dessert is probably
one of the best I've ever had.

 So, not only is the food amazing at Skati's,
the ambiance is wonderful too.  The lighting
is very dim just the way I like it.  There
is a lot of candle light--sort of romantic.

Skiing was amazing!  At first I felt so awkward!!
Somewhere along the line I hit my groove. I think
I was skiing faster then ever before.  Later
in the day it started to snow.  It was cold, but 

Dinner tonight was fondue and salad.  I
made it and scored 3 stars (wink).

Now I'm sitting here by the fire feeling
quite content.

Hope you all had a great Monday!  I'm
feeling very spoiled!!


  1. My kind of gal we love a really great bottle of red too. Have tons of fun!

  2. Wow this sounds like the kind of trip I am craving right now. Bordeaux is my favorite of all wines....the best! A relative owns a vineyard in France that produces amazing Bordeaux's and ever since we learned about them and experienced them "on that level" I am hooked!! Sounds like you are having a fabulous time...enjoy!

  3. Oh my gosh, I love that restaurant. It's pretty during daylight too as there is a view of the mountains. I am coming up on Friday for the Night of Lights on Sat.
