Spring it on!

I love Spring. I love the smell of cut grass. I love the crisp evening breeze {"breeze" being a euphemism for crazy coastal wind}. I love how my kids seem to relish in spending time outside jumping rope, riding bikes, playing ball or swimming in the pool. 

I luxuriate in such days. 

And there are simply too few. 

Soon there will be no breeze or wind. Nothing will be described as crisp. And none of us will be willing to get out of the pool except to grab a cool drink. 

So this is the time for alfresco dining. Our family enjoyed an alfresco meal on Saturday, but just burgers and hot dogs. We cleaned the table. Put the cushions on the chairs and lit a few candles. It was lovely.

And it got me thinking: I believe it is officially time to start the {adult} outdoor entertaining season. Hot dogs and burgers for the kids, fine, but I think I need to elevate the rest of my game a bit.   

Here's my plan!

2.  Blood orange margarita
3. Peach, Basil and Lemon Thyme Sorbet
4. Pear, Brie, and Pesto Panini

So who's ready to put on a sundress, flip flops and join me?
