Breakfast al Fresco

Ah, August. Saturday was a rare sunny day, with the temperature high enough that we dared venture outdoors without jackets and scarves.

I put the grill to work - even baking the biscuits on the top rack, a happily successful experiment - and we broke our fast out on the deck. The side-burner is a much-neglected component for such undertakings as scrambling eggs. Some day we'll live in a warmer microclimate where we can have an outdoor kitchen and cook everything on the grill. C'mon, California Lottery!

Fresh mint and basil came from the garden; goat cheese from a local Sonoma farmer, tomatoes from the farmers' market. God only knows where the Costco biscuit product came from.
