What do you do when it's another gorgeous day out, you have your family come for dinner and you want to celebrate not only your husband as the loving father he is, but also summer's official beginning and International Yoga Day? Why, you combine all three and create a little oasis in your favourite spot in the world.
Since I'm currently on a little staycation with lots of free time on my hands, I decided to create an al fresco dining spot under the willow tree.
Not only is this the place were we like most to put our feet up and relax, it is also one of my regular yoga spots.

This quiche is to die for, everybody at last night's dinner said so. I got the recipe from the lovely Jenny from Jen+eric Generation. Try it! You won't regret it, I promise.
We had a delicious dinner consisting of the aforementioned quiche, green salad, greek pasta salad and a quinoa salad (because I'm hipster like that).
Dessert was the most incredible, famous-around-here Krause Farms Berry Custard Pie: A heavenly fresh pie piled high with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries, all sitting on a rich, creamy custard filling.
It's the kinda pie you forget to take pictures of because you can't wait to dig in.
The kinda pie you don't even mind gaining weight for, because it's so absolutely, totally worth it.
It's the kinda pie that makes you believe in unicorns, miracles and justice in the world.
The kinda pie that you would request as a last meal, and die with a smile on your face. (Too far? I got carried away, sorry about that.)
But seriously: BEST PIE EVER.
It was a very relaxing, great evening with good food and conversation.
How was your weekend?
