Family in Town

John's parents drove up north to visit us this past weekend. On one of the nights we went to dinner at Wild River Grille and sat in the outdoor patio area. There was a life music performer and the evening was perfectly warm with a slight breeze.
 

The restaurant is one of the popular dining spots downtown because it sits along the Truckee River nestled underneath some trees. Before tonight, I have only dined there for lunch and happy hour but not yet dinner.
We ordered a bottle of wine to enjoy with dinner and I can't remember all we ordered (but I got some photos!) and it was delicious. I really liked the ahi tuna appetizer I picked for dinner. Light and it was plenty of fish. Their two salads were also good (one was the beet salad and the other I cannot recall at the moment).

As always we love our time together. Whether we're out and about, having dinner, or breakfast.
 
While my mom-in-law and I worked on their business website, John and his Dad ran errands and stopped for ice cream.
 

 
And on one of the nights we grilled filet mignon at home. I made a black bean salad and for dessert, vanilla ice cream with toasted walnuts, coconut flakes, and Maggie's homemade strawberry jam!  Note to self: I will never leave fresh strawberries soaking in a bowl all day and had Maggie not saved them, they soon would have been dumped in the trash.

Yea Maggie, strawberry saver! I bet the jam was as delish as everything else - it all looked good.
