Dining on the Deck
Posted: Thursday, July 1, 2010
In Minnesota, we have such a short window of opportunity to enjoy the warm weather of summer and early fall that most of us seize every chance we get to dine outdoors. Whether or not a restaurant has a patio can even be a deciding factor in where we choose to eat on a beautiful, sunny afternoon or evening. To recreate this same dining experience at home, we have created a few recipes for lighter summer fare that can be the main part of the meal or an addition to your own al fresco creations.
Stop by the Wine Shop at our Eagan, Uptown, Oak Park Heights and Woodbury Markets for a great bottle of wine or local craft beer to round out the meal. Then set aside a little extra time to enjoy the great weather, food and liquid refreshments. It doesn’t get any better than this!
