for outdoor meals
and the scent of lavender
a table in the shade
a couch to lay on
a glass of wine
and a fabulous meal.
My favorite meal to eat outdoors: Shrimp Scampi Pasta, and a cucumber-tomato salad
Shrimp Scampi: Put a big pot to boil for the pasta while you saute a pound of medium shrimp in 2 T of olive oil, with two cloves of crushed garlic and a tablespoon of hot pepper flakes.
When the pasta is cooked al dente, add it to the shrimp, and toss with a tablespoon of chopped parsley.
Enjoy al fresco with cucumber and tomato salad and plenty of crusty bread to soak up the juices.
