I don't know about you but I'm counting down to 29th March, when all being well we will be able to socialise in gardens.  The foray into socialising when we've been unable to see family and friends for almost a year is taking up so much head space right now.  I've been pinning ideas for al fresco dining (I'm thinking pizzas, burgers, jacket potatoes, chilli, anything really that can be prepped and served in the garden to warm guests if we're not blessed with a sunny April.  One pot dishes...
