Trucking Al Fresco

Today Ed and I had dinner outside. Al Fresco, as they say. We prepared dinner in the truck (that's it in the background, with the black trailer) and then Ed carried it out on a tray to a covered picnic table at the rest area we stopped at in North Dakota. He was beyond ecstatic.
We had Delmonico steaks, smashed potatoes with the butter I bought at the farmer's market, corn niblets and a side salad. Real food, served on real plates, with real silverware. Delightful.

While I finished up the dishes, Ed took out the trash. That's about as domestic as it gets out here on the road. It's my turn to drive now, which I will do as I listen to my audio book and watch the sun set.

Up next, dessert under the stars.

That truly sounds like heaven. With a menu like yours, I need an invitation to Chez Salena. We think about stopping at the picnic tables, but the two times we've done it, one in West Virginia and one somewhere I can't remember, we fled back to the truck, escaping the mosquitos!

Hi Salena, it is Kimberly from Life On the Road. I am with Ed on excitement for this meal. It sounds delicious!
I am like a kid when it comes to eating outside too. :)
Take care
