In summer, we enjoy grassy picnics, waterside dinners on the beach, and pleasant summer cookouts around the fire ring. These venues make our humble meals feel special, without even changing the menu.
This autumn, we've continued along the same lines, but more appropriate for this cool and wet weather.
Picture a glowing fire, deep cushions, soft fabrics, and amiable companions -- all that is needed for a little dolce far niente. This is how we've been enjoying our simple Friday suppers, as of late. Whatever is on the menu, we plate and take to the living room, to dine by the glow of the fireplace.
It's pleasing. It's simple. And for just a little while, we are removed from daily life.
A truly frugal indulgence.
