While the meat is cooking, won't you join me for a glass of crisp white wine?
We'll watch the palm leaves rustle in the warm evening breeze,
and indulge our senses in the sweet smell of late-blooming jasmine.
I'll mix up one of my favorite summer-time side dishes (I add red onion, olives, and paprika to my macaroni salad for a little kick!).
Add a couple of steamed artichokes from our local Farmer's Market...
...and we have the perfect meal for a hot summer night.
Thank you for joining me for dinner, friends--it was a pleasure to have you over for BBQ, Red Rose Alley style!
