During the summer I roam from one air-conditioned space to another. But at the first drop of the temperature from the 90s to the 80s, I start to dream of fire pit evenings, Edison lights, with Charcuterie Boards and charred meats on the grill.
Entertaining can be as simple as S'mores and Mugs of Hot Apple Cider with a rack of Apple Cider Donuts on the side, to an elaborate feast of grilled chicken, rib eye steaks, and a harvest trough of roasted vegetables.
No patio? Roll out the RV rug. They're inexpensive and they work for an evening. Pull the dining room table and chairs outside, throw on a massive tablecloth, add a beautiful fall arrangement and bring out the feast.
No outdoor electrical outlets? Explore the many wi-fi plug-free options available. Light bulbs, spotlights, LED string lights -- so much fun and an inexpensive way to enjoy an evening with good friends, good food, and good conversation.
