Napa: Model Bakery
In pre-celebration of T's birthday, a bunch of us took a day trip to Napa. The original plan was to proceed in this order: food, wine, food, wine, food, wine.
Instead, here's what we did: food, food, food, wine, wine, wine. It's pretty clear what our priorities are.
After a quick stop at the Napa information center, we started off our Napa adventure at Model Bakery:
So much bread and other baked goods to choose from:
Model Bakery is famous for its English muffins:
Now, I've never been a fan of English muffins, but I figured I had to give these a chance.

I really don't know how to describe Model Bakery's English muffin besides by saying that I've never had one like that before. Lame, I know. But I'm trying to be honest here! It was toasty and soft and just crazy good.
We also tried a blueberry and cheese pastry, but it was nowhere as revelationary as the English muffin:
It certainly looked pretty though:
I never thought I would ever like English muffins, but thanks to Model Bakery, I'm a changed woman.
You win, Model Bakery. You win.
