The sun came out for dinner...

The Springs in CT are dreary at times...
but we were lucky to see the sun today just in time for dinner.

Our picnic table is serving as my desk right now...



So tonight we are eating on picnic benches with TV trays.


An easy summer meal of grilled chicken kabobs, asparagus and rice...


(somebody has to lay right in the way of things)



Our deck isn't huge but we love it on mild nights like tonight.



Lite some tea lights in mason jars filled with a bit of Epsom salt.
Nothing fancy...


I love asparagus on the grill - brush with balsamic, olive oil and a little salt - then grill.
Even my 9 year old boys will eat it.


This is the only night my hubby will be home this week so this outdoor dinner feels
special but with very little effort.


Happy Wednesday!
