Dinner Outside

This is one of my favorite things about the warmer months. There is something so simple and relaxed about eating together outside, whether on a picnic blanket or on the deck. And, from the perspective of the homemaker, clean up is a snap because I know that creatures both big and small will take care of the crumbs.

Tonight's menu: fried egg sandwiches (on Ezekiel 4:9 bread: yum!), salad (with mixed greens, avocado and red onion), sponge cake with strawberries for dessert, and a full glass of milk for everyone. And only slight modifications for the kids: egg, sliced avocado, apples with peanut butter, and half a quesadilla.

What changes do the warmer months bring to your kitchen?

Warmer months...we are still 2 months away from warmer months....ahhh...this is the hardest time of year in seattle...we are firmly stuck in the 50's. .. and will be here for awhile. But when summer comes and the sun sets in- we eat outside EVERY meal. Yay!

I think that our spring is your summer-- we still eat outside, but it's not nearly as cool and pleasant as these months (not to mention the mosquitoes!).
