Living in the Low Country has its perks…
This past week I went shopping at the farmers market in preparation for family dinner alfresco this weekend. We are about 10 miles from the nearest market and our favorite restaurants, so when we designed my home over a year ago, the backyard was a big part of the design process. We wanted a place where we could eat and entertain family and friends. Especially for those times we didn’t feel like driving far.
One of my family’s favorite summer dinners!
….is an Italian-style chicken cutlet, served w/ southern greens and corn-on-the-cob. Being raised in New York, and raised in a mixed Italian & Costa Rican family, I definitely like to mix it up with the menu. Since the kids are all grown now, we could all enjoy a glass of wine with dinner to toast the evening. I finished dinner off with a batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. A family favorites no matter how grown up you are!
When it all said and done, I wouldn’t trade being in the low country for anything… Even with the bees buzzing around and ants on our toes, it’s all part of the fun of spending my time outside with family and friends.
…it’s better than any restaurant!
