Those of you that read my blog know I take part in a weekly Monday night doggy hike. But have I mentioned that after every hike we’ve now started incorporating a dinner? Allow me to show you some pictures . . .
Sharing wine and good food is a fantastic way to end a Monday night. It makes all the difference between dreading Monday and absolutely looking forward to Mondays. And that shift is a GIANT win in my books!
Our dinners aren’t complicated – rather simple really. Some grilled protein of choice, a salad, and a starch. I’m of the opinion, however, that simple meals are often the best. Especially in the middle of summer-like weather.
The idea is that every week someone else will host the dinner. It hasn’t been our turn yet but the Fiancé and I have given it some thought. My casa isn’t really suitable for entertaining so I think we’ll host the dinner at a local park. We have a brilliant Weber Q (100) bbq that is totally portable and grills up an absolutely lovely meal. That way we can host even though the casa is really not good for inviting people over.
I kind of love our new tradition. It’s the kind of thing that makes a girl feel more at home in this Rocky Mountain town. In fact I daresay I’m really looking forward to our walks. Even in the dead of winter.
Yaaaayyyy for wonderful Monday hikes + dinner!
Do you have a casa that’s good for entertaining? Did you ever have a too small home like mine? What did you do? Did you still invite friends over?
