This pretty much sums up what I did all weekend. Mother nature cooperated and gave us gorgeous, dry weather, so we spent most of our time relaxing in the yard. I spent a little time in the kitchen, mainly making sides (mustardy potato salad with dill and chives from the garden, slow-cooked beans with cocoa and chipotles) for the things Mike grilled for our meals (smoky barbecued chicken and a delicious beef brisket), as well as turning the leftovers from our Friday lobster dinner into lobster salad and lobster stock, but the heavy lifting was done by my husband.
I took a lot of photos of what we ate, but the quality of the photos is directly proportionate to the amount of wine I ingested – they got worse and worse as our evenings progressed (whoops). You’ll just have to trust me when I say it was all delicious.
