Outdoor Breakfast with Greek Scrambled Egg Pockets Recipe

Summer is for sure in the air, as our family worked in the yard all weekend stringing lights, blowing, mowing, cleaning, planting … you name it. It’s work to get ready for spring and summertime entertaining, but once the hard work is done, it’s so worth it.

At our old house, we cleaned off the back patio, making room for guests–for breakfast, taking a dip in the pool, or dinner.

Tulips are bursting in our front yard, which make the prettiest arrangement.

Which reminds me of this sweet quote: Use your “tulips” to kiss winter goodbye!

  3. I havent’ seen a serving boat like this, but think I need to add it to my arsenal. Having the proper serving dishes makes all the difference to how the meal comes together. Simple things like gravy boats or a large platter make a simple meal feel special.

  4. What a brilliant serving piece! This egg dish looks like the perfect recipe to shake up our breakfast routine a bit. I’ll be trying these this week. Thank you!

  5. I found you while reading Jan Udlock’s Blog and so glad I did! Your blog came into my awareness at a time when my family really needs to get out from under life, and let the joy of living come back to us again!

  8. Wheat pita bread are rich source of folate, magnesium, selenium and B vitamins. Another big health plus of eating pita is that your digestive system can work perfectly well. The rich amount of fibre in pita can have a great impact on the way your digestive works.
