Easy Olive Tapenade with Herbed Pita Bread - the perfect weekend appetizer

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this post from yesterday about someone cutting into the flagstone in our backyard. After living in our house for nearly ten years, we are finally covering the back patio.

During the warmer weather, we spend a lot of time out back in the pool. We also love to grill, but in the middle of summer when temps can skyrocket, and the sun is blazing down on us, it’s just more comfortable to stay indoors.

In just three days’ time, according to the carpenters, we will have a new patio cover! We’ll be able to sit & enjoy the sunset and find refuge from the heat. We’re even hopeful that we’ll be able to grow some tomatoes. We have tried several times, but the sun is just too brutal.

What we are most excited about, is being able to sit outside and enjoy the monsoon rains and thunderstorms without getting wet. The rain cools the temps and washes the Earth, leaving it clean and smelling fresh. I think it’s our favorite time of year!

This also means more grilling and dinners outside, which is a big plus. Mark and I love to sit and enjoy a cocktail or a glass of wine and an appetizer while waiting for our food to cook.

Recently, I made this olive tapenade and herbed pita bread, which was fabulous. It goes great with wine and good conversation.
