As much as I love the warm weather, the fact that the boys are free to run outside barefoot, or the fact that I can wear dresses all the time, my favorite part of summer has to be dinner. You can eat outside and it's still sunny! Up here, that's nothing short of miraculous.
Just slice some local tomatoes and radishes, add olive oil and salt and you've got a salad.
Throw a couple of steaks on the grill, and you've got dinner.
Add a glass of wine (or two) on the deck, and you've got summer.
