Prettiest Meal of the Day

In the Springtime, Lunch is the prettiest meal of the day.

......Photobucket

Today my friends and I took full advantage of the gorgeous Houston weather and had a lovely outdoor lunch. The weather couldn't have been more perfect, as we ate and soaked in the gentle sunshine.

I had the most delicious Grilled Cheese Pesto Sandwich. I am not exaggerating when I say that it's the best Grilled Cheese Sandwich I have ever had. There's something about Pesto that seems to glam up anything that it's paired with.

Everyone's outfit is unbelievable! It seems the weather in Houston is really warm. It's chilly here today. I envy you! Having lunch outdoors is such a comfortable way to spend time with friends. I can't wait for the chance with my friends as well. I'm going to bring "obento"(a portable meal which is packed in a special container.)and enjoy luch with friends under the cherry blossoms.

Oh, what I wouldn't give to live in a place where eating outside was an option right now! As for my pretty meal, this week hasn't seen many of them (rather, any) but hopefully when I have Thai food on a boat tomorrow with my friend, it will be delicious and pretty at once!

Right now breakfast is the prettiest meal for me... oatmeal with yellow banana, cranberries, nuts, and brown sugar. Oh happiness.

I made toast for breakfast covered with peanut butter, banana slices, and a touch of agave nectar, (a honey substitute)... On the side was strawberries, a kiwi, some blueberries, and grapes. It was the most colorful breakfast ever!

Lavon said...

What fun...and yummy food!

the Lost Earring said...

Sounds delicious and what a sweet group shot :) The best grilled cheese here in Seattle is at a place called Bleu--oh my they use gorgonzola and a bit of wasabi if you can believe it. Okay, it's 8:30 a.m. and I'm ready for lunch!

Miss B said...

It's only 9:35 a.m. here Dionne and I am craving grilled cheese + pesto and haven't even had my coffee yet!

Love the photo, I am astonished that you are such a great cook and love sweets and are so tiny. God does love you;)

LJ said...

Yummy! Grilled cheese and pesto sounds delish!

By the way, thanks for all the tips on NYC! I would've never thought to go to places where movies take place! I love "You've Got Mail" so I definitely want to check that out. And I will definitely take your tips on the food! You've made me even MORE excited about the trip (if that's possible)!

Truly Smitten said...

you look so lovely!

MYSAVIOR said...

What great pictures and that sandwich sounds so yummy.

The prettiest meal I had this week was today at Bible Study. We had a swiss cheese and bacon quiche with grapes.
Yummo!

You and your friends look so pretty and young and warm. It is cold here in New Jersey and raining.

I completely agree with you about the Pesto, it really does glam up a sandwich!
My meals have been mostly at work this week, so no real pretty meals, just fun snack times with my guy at midnight...

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

looks like a gorgeous day! and i love what you're wearing :)

Tender Branson said...

I've been putting pesto on everything, but haven't tried a grilled cheese yet. Coupled with orzo, that is a beautiful meal. I think my prettiest meal is yet to come.

Polished Sense said...
