Lunch al fresco

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

One of the joys of summer is eating al fresco. We particularly like to have Sunday lunch down by the pool. I load everything we’ll need on a tray and make my way carefully down two sets of deck stairs. I like to set a nice table with tablecloth and cloth napkins and a bouquet of flowers cut freshly from my own yard.

This week’s Sunday lunch was a vegetable risotto with fresh peas, asparagus and spinach.

Of course to have a proper Sunday lunch you simply must open up a bottle of nice wine. We enjoyed an Alsatian Gewurztraminer with our risotto.

The weather was lovely, warm but not too hot. After lunch we ended up spending most of the afternoon in the pool. A truly decadent way to spend a summer afternoon.

Everything looks lovely! Sundays should be about relaxing and leisure.

Thank you all! And yes, Reya, fabulous is right! Paula, we feel the same way (obviously).
