Summer Dinners

Dinner is much more fluid and interesting in the summer. We eat at all different times and in all different styles. Yesterday was an outdoor day filled with the sprinkler and backyard play and the kids did not want to come in so I decided to be fluid.

Dinner began with ice cream cones on the deck. Nothing better than that is there for a first course of dinner? Then I made some lemonade and set out a blanket on the deck and brought out tall glasses of lemonade, a big bowl of edamame and some cut up tofu. No plates or silverware. Cleanup was super easy and the kids were about as happy as could be about eating tofu and edamame since they had ice cream and lemonade first.

What are you having for dinner tonight?
