Yesterday I headed to Grants Pass to Tap Rock
Their husbands attend the Law Enforcement/Fire luncheon I go to once a month. The 'guys' both worked for LASD Homicide. We know a lot of the same people from the department.
We had a really great time and good food and wine! My favorite (and Candy's) is the Crab BLT salad....
