Sparkling strawberry lemonade and peach iced tea. Artichokes, marinated mozzarella, olives with feta, and grissini. Cucumber salad and deviled eggs. Grilled eggplant, zucchini, and peppers. Lamb chops, rosemary chicken skewers, and hickory-smoked spareribs with homemade barbecue sauce. Strawberry-rhubarb pie with fresh whipped cream and a glass of ice-cold limoncello. A solid week of planning, shopping, and cleaning. And sweet friends to share the day with, as we celebrate this loveliest of seasons.
