We decided to have a picnic in the garden; my husband came home early from the office, some friends are staying overnight and I don’t feel much like being in the kitchen on such a lovely spring afternoon; we really don’t need any other excuses. Our jasmine is just starting to flower and the smell is happiness indeed.

A fire, and sandwiches ready to go on the grill, pure bliss. A blanket on the lawn, Buena Vista on the stereo and Merlot in my glass; this is the good life.

Chicken & Basil Pesto

Dessert is a fresh fruit salad and champagne ice-cream, made from the recipe I found on the Free Gourmet site:
