Ahhh, summer time...summer livin'...
We were invited to join friends for a Memorial Day Cook-Out.
I love to make appetizers, so was quick to volunteer for that assignment.
But first, the true meaning behind the Memorial Day holiday.
We spent the morning with family brunch and a trip to the cemetary to visit my hubby's father's gravesite.
We honor and pay tribute to all who serve.
By late afternoon, we joined friends for good food and great fellowship.
Alan and Kari had roasted the baby back ribs
in their oven for most of the afternoon.
The clouds burned off and it was a beautiful evening
to go out to the patio to the grill.
Thank you, Grill Master!
It was the perfect kick-off to our summer.
But again, first things first...
Next year's budget needs to be submitted.
Final grades need to be posted.
Thankfully, my assistant approves!
p.s. one of my appetizers was this Cowboy Caviar.
