How I Love Dining Al Fresco (without dining al fresco)

In theory, I love eating al fresco. I love bringing beautiful food out to a perfectly manicured backyard under a Tuscan sun with my friends and family gathered together. But in reality, eating outside is a lot more effort with a lot more bugs and muggy temperatures. These options are wonderful compromises while keeping your sanity. There are different styles for different houses all with the same purpose- keeping your sanity while enjoying a quiet meal in your backyard.
