Patio dining

Last night I had porterhouse steak and some roasted tomatoes and asparagus done in the wood oven. Family was out, so this was a nice, quiet solo dining for me.....

I just love eating out on our patio when away on holiday. Somehow, food always tastes better.

So true about food tasting better outdoors. I thought it was just me. Even when its 50*F outside I will sit out in the patio and enjoy a hot bowl of soup or whatever.
Same holds true when out camping...:))

Not a pretty one but I made white pizza last night topped with olive oil, mozza, bacony-crunchy pepperoni, hot peppers, and dried basil.
I had almost the whole pie to myself with a couple of bottles of Black Toad dark ale. The pizza and ale were the bomb!

Pizzas are not supposed to be pretty. Well, unless they've been pre-formed and sold en block to supermarkets etc. Nope, yours looks so appetizing I want it NOW!

Reminds me of grandma's. And I bet the beero was good, eh?

Bet it does. .. but mine's Harvey's, their brewery not far from here.

Harveys - Sussex brewery, Lewes, founded in 1790 and still brewing traditional beers

We should talk Beero sometime.
