Heart-to-Heart with Diane

Hello and Welcome! Isn't raising a family the greatest!? I know I've got the best job in the world, just being Mom! I love sharing things I've discovered that make being "Mom" better, easier or more fulfilling, and that is what this blog is all about. Welcome!

Eat Out!

Summertime! Camping, vacations, picnics, reunions, yard work, swimming, projects . . . there is so much to do, and it seems the summer is slipping by fast. We happened onto a happy way to enjoy summer more without putting in any extra effort. We eat out—literally.

The outdoors is really only a few steps away, and you're going to eat breakfast anyway, so why not take it outside and enjoy the summer light and the morning sky as well as the food?

You don't have to have a pretty umbrella and table. A blanket on the grass does great too. Use a laundry basket or a big tray to save steps when transporting food and dishes outside. One unexpected benefit: spills are no stress outdoors.

Being out in the open air seems to nourish and feed the spirit as well as the body. It is so refreshing! Hope you "eat out" soon!

This breakfast sundae is made of homegrown raspberries,
white peaches, grapes, plain yogurt and peanuts.

    your breakfast sundae looks really good, did you grow all the produce or just the berries? it all looks so fresh.

    We eat out as much as we can this time of year, I love eating breakfast outside before the heat takes over.
