A while ago, the lovely ladies in my “mommy group” started a fun little tradition – lunch for five. We do it once a month and I signed up as host for May. When me and the ladybug first got up in the morning, I was sure we wouldn’t have any luck with the weather. But about ten minutes before the guests arrived, the sun came out and the back yard was suddenly sunny and warm enough for the kids to run around and play – that must mean it was meant to be!
I’m sure I’ve told you this many times before, but it’s worth mentioning again – I’m really blessed to have these people and their gorgeous, well-behaved kids in my life. Especially if they come to have lunch with me from half way across the country! ♥
I’m not sure whether it’s a crazy coincidence or if it’s just us – we have the cutest kids in the world!
The Food! I marinated chicken breasts, filled mushrooms with a blue cheese cream and ham, grilled corn, made a fresh melon-feta salad (I’ll do a post on my favorite salad recipes so you guys have loads of side dishes to go with your barbecue this summer!) and for dessert, I grilled halved bananas with some cognac syrup and served them with ice cream, strawberries and melted chocolate 🙂
Having a huge rock at the center of the garden can be a huge benefit – whether you need some quick grown-up-privacy or are climbing it for the sake of the adventure 🙂
