What a Sunday! It seems summer has finally arrived here in southern Ontario! Beautiful weather, great family and great food. Problem was, food was coming all day long! We went to dim sum with all my siblings and nieces and nephews and then my cousins came over to celebrate Father's Day with us. We spent the afternoon in the pool (not me - I haven't been looking too good in my bathing suit these days - still trying to shed those 15 lbs. of hibernation fat buildup). Our dinner was complete with a baby spinach salad, prime rib steaks, premarinaded rosemary lamb chops, cheese sausages, grilled veggies (peppers and zucchini), grilled fish balls, baked potatoes and sweet potatoes. It was a hot day so nothing was to be made in the oven or cooked indoor for that matter.Enjoying a lovely sunny day in the pool!
To be honest, when we put the pool in a few years ago, I knew I wouldn't be going in much. We had a pool at our last house, and in two years, I might have gone in no more than 5 times, 1 of which I was thrown. I love the aesthetics of the pool. It was either a pool or a nice grassy backyard with a hot tub. We decided to go with the former since I knew the kids would get more use out of a pool. My husband would have used the hot tub all year round. That just means that in a couple of years, we may just end up with a hot tub too, I guess.
