We live in a fairly moderate climate where our temperatures are never extremely cold during the Winter months, so we enjoy being outdoors most of the year round. A jacket or a sweater are often required during December and January, but at least we can be out.
But once April and May roll around, and our temperatures warm even more, al fresco meals become so much more appealing. We love to sit outside and watch the world go by… and to enjoy the lovely view of the park across the street.
Our patio balcony faces South South East so we have sun from early morning till about 1:30 every day. Sometimes we take our morning coffee outside… and sometimes even breakfast. But my favorite meal to take outside is lunch. And, it doesn’t have to be fancy… even the simplest fare somehow becomes special when you take it outdoors.
A tuna salad sandwich with veggie garnishes for The Captain.
And tuna on greens with a cup of my Cauliflower Coconut Soup alongside. At our house we normally make our own weekend lunches!
