Today has been the perfect sort of day to spend outside, especially while eating.
It's hot but there's a breeze, and I finally got organized about a proper wasp trap:
You fill it with apple juice and the wasps fly in to drink it, leaving you to enjoy your lunch in peace.
I didn't get around to eating the all the croissants I bought from the French bakery on Monday for a tea party, but stale croissants are awesome when toasted, so they automatically went on the picnic list. I like them best with butter and honey but that's a bit too evil for lunch so I stuck with cheese.
Sandwich planning bonus: the heirloom cherry tomatoes are ripe already.
I'm so glad I put furniture on the porch this year.
(caveat: the heirloom tomatoes? delicious in a buttery croissant, bitter and a bit ew on their own. I'll be cooking with these or throwing them into a pasta salad, if I ever remember to buy more pasta, which is debatable considering I forgot again today after going into the grocery store specifically to get some.)
