Dining Alfresco with My Guy

Today is probably one of the top ten days of the year! 85degrees, no humidity, the sky is clear and the most perfect of blue and the greens are still the darkest and most lush of the season. Hubby and I have a few days that are not over-planned every once in awhile and today is one of them.
So I think to myself, how do I bless the greatest guy I've ever known? Julia Childs would know the answer to this question or even Paula Deen. With food of course! So off we go to the  garden with our table set romantically for two.
I still have so much summer squash and now we are eating them when they are tiny to beat the frost, so sauteed baby yellow squash , and pan-seared-scallops were for tonight's dinner but hubby has a meeting so lunch it is ! Couscous provides the grain and a cranberry / raspberry spritzer is our beverage.Yum Yum!! 
  Now will you just look at who is clearing the table! It is a wonderful life!!!!

Thank you God for a guy whose greatest ambition is to love You and his family!!!
