Picnic Time



To party at this Marina you don't have to have a luxury yacht, or even a small boat; you don't even have to be near the water. All you have to do is enjoy the food and have some fun...


A refreshing tabbouleh salad with roasted eggplants and zucchini with an apricot. 


A meat pastry (belyashi) with tomato juice or adult version: bloody Mary.


Fried green tomatoes and catfish would certainly comfort any tiered traveler of the world.


A garden fresh salad...


and Roasted eggplants (aubergine) and potato risotto to satisfy a gourmet friend.


A glass of champagne orange sorbet...


with an orange margarita...


or some strawberry lemonade.


And if you have room for dessert:
donutella or...


a slice (or two, or three...) of cake Napoleon?


He is ready to party at that tent... 


And make sure you have a great time! :)


See you,
Marina

  22. Hi Marina-I left a reply for you on my blog. Thank you for you kind words, and NO...I'm not saying Good Bye...and probably will not be for a while...I meant good-bye to my kitty, Prince. Your kitty is so funny with the frown on his forehead...LOL I don't think he wants any guests to join, but I will crash the party, anyway!

    I will have your amazing roasted eggplant, and will take the orange margarita. Later, I would like to try all your other fabulous dishes, and desserts...and relax by your pool:DDD
