Plate Full of Summer.......

This weekend in VA was cool, clear and breezy. Just gorgeous. And the perfect weekend to finally tackle painting our dining room. Why? Well, I've decided it's b/c we're insane & love to torture our anal rententive selves w/painting the darkest brown imaginable against all white trim and ceiling. You know there's no way all of our paint lines will ever be perfect. We are currently endeavoring to accept this maddening fact. ;)

After much sanding, grunting, taping, whining and rolling, I fixed us a plate of this:

And it instantly soothed all aches & pains from our hard day of labour. Nothing better than BBQ chicken, fresh green beans, corn on the grill and a little parm orzo al fresco. If it seems like I eat parm orzo with everything, well, it's b/c I do!

So, here's a cheer to summer! We're ready for you! :)

So not only did you perform manual labor, but you cooked too???? You are a saint.

As always, your meal looks great! (And there is absolutely *nothing* wrong with having parmesan orzo all the time!) :)
