As summer winds down, we’re still enjoying a few outdoor dinners in our backyard, but not many with school and soccer season in full-swing, and then the … Shhh … (remodel! I’m trying to be patient!)
(Elliot & new courtyard front entrance)
(new back door to right, walk-in pantry to left)

Simple tomatoes and basil
I can’t wait to dig these out of the ground.

What kind of veggies or unusual foods do you barbeque?
