Backyard dining part I
We also made the amazing panzenalla salad from Ina Garten's parties cookbook. We cut up some watermelon and served yummy bread. Notice the small white cups..Madeline cut some rosemary from my garden and placed it in the cups and it just added to the table and the smell is incredible! She got the idea from Matthew Meads book Entertaining Simple. He teaches how to make good use of things that you may already have and using them for different things.
We even tried to make it festive for the all the little boys by using my colorful plastic dishes and setting them on the footstool for their dining pleasures.
The mosquitoes started to come out and my mom had heard that if you use dryer sheets and rub them on your skin it will protect you from them.
We decided to wear them on our heads too! Ha ha...it did work! Then we played a great card game called Nertz!! We just laughed and laughed and had such a great time.
