Yesterday was the warmest day we've had since 2009. It was nearly 80 degrees, and the pool deck at our apartment complex suddenly spawned a college-aged cast straight from Bay Watch. We had friends over for dinner, and although I had been planning a beef roast with root veggies, in the end, making a winter meal seemed like no way to welcome in the spring...
So pesto pasta salad it was, with marinaded chicken and rice, sweet cold cantaloupe, and pink lemonade with star-shaped ice cubes! It was so worth the sore feet from standing two hours in the kitchen preparing food. When Bay Watch filed home after the heat of the sun had passed, and it was quiet and peaceful, we took our dinner out to the pool deck and enjoyed our meal in the balmy evening warmth. North Carolina, can we keep you?
So jealous of your awesome day. I'm glad you enjoyed it. The kids and spent the entire day driving back and forth from Asheville and never got to enjoy the BEAUTIFUL weather... So jealous. Food looks delish!
Your dinner sounds and looks so beautiful! Your photography is awesome. We didn't get 80s today, but it was summy and warmer than usual, so we had dinner on patio, too! So much fun!
