outdoor seatingThe warmer weather is the perfect time to enjoy your LifeStyle home’s covered lanai and backyard. Gather your friends and family to catch up, grill out, and share a meal together in the open air.

Entertaining Alfresco
Meals cooked outside can run the gamut from simple burgers and hot dogs to more involved recipes. The beautiful blue summer sky is the limit when you are entertaining alfresco.

Depending on the size and scope of your outdoor setup, meals may range from a small pizza party with pizzas prepared in an outdoor pizza oven, to a sprawling backyard party with trays of hors d’oeuvres, tiki torches, and LED lights.

A Kitchen Perfect for Prep Work and Entertaining
Some of the new trends in kitchens will contribute to the joy of spending time doing prep work. Open-concept kitchens, usually featuring a big island, allow friends and family to congregate around the chef while food is being prepped. Comfort and relaxation are key, and this kitchen arrangement provides just that.

A more spacious pantry with movable shelves and doors will give more room to store and access a variety of staples. And ample cabinetry—standard in all LifeStyle homes—allows for more cooking accoutrements.

Food Fit for the Grill
Creating marinades, preparing sauces and dips, and chopping veggies are some of the ways you can prepare. Finishing touches can be completed outside for some of the fares. Quickly whip up salads to add to delicious grilled offerings that may include:

  • Old favorites like burgers and hot dogs
  • Chicken
  • Kabobs made with assorted veggies of your choice
  • Steak
  • Fish (mahi-mahi, salmon, tuna, swordfish, snapper)
  • Potatoes
  • Pork chops with maple syrup and balsamic vinegar
  • Asparagus wrapped in bacon
  • Corn on the cob
  • Garlic bread
