We met at the lovely Grandale Farm Restaurant in Purcellville for brunch. This restaurant has seasonal fare on their menu and use a farm-to-table model. Everything served is sourced locally or grown on the property. It's incredible. I had the Grass Fed Hanger Steak Salad with no dressing and no croutons. It was absolutely incredible. A huge pile of mixed greens, caramelized onions, blue cheese and the most delicious steak. YUM!
We visited three local wineries - 868 Estate Vineyards (on the same property as Grandale Farm), Maggie Malick Wine Caves (what's not to love about a wine cave!) and Cardamom Family Vineyards (all wines paired with freshly made salsas!).
Perfect way to celebrate! And we even put a candle in the pumpkin roll!
- Breakfast: leftover dinner from last night (sausage, brussel sprouts, tomatoes and green beans)
- Lunch: Hanger Steak
- Snack: Birthday Paleo Pumpkin Roll with Dairy Free filling.
- Dinner: (almost forgot to take a picture!) We ate at Ghengis Grill so I had a mixed bowl with lots of veggies and no starch (chose cabbage instead of rice or noodles).
