    Yay! Tonight’s barbeque was a huge success! And I love our friends!

    The evening started with conversation around the table outside on our back porch. While we chatted, we munched on chips and salsa. I also sipped on an Arnold Palmer. (After last night, there were no John Dalys for me!)

    On the dinner menu: grilled hamburgers, garlicky couscous, and salad.

    My plate: hamburger + Annie’s Goddess Dressing for dipping and salad with balsamic vinegar.

    Dessert (not surprisingly) was the highlight of the meal for me. I made S’mores on a Stick for our guests.

    And our guests brought cupcakes from Sweet!! I was so psyched! Thanks, Dave and Marie!

    I love summer… and barbeques… and cupcakes… and puppies… and good friends. I’m off to bed with a big smile on my face. Life is good.

    Good night, guys!

    Sounds (and looks) like the perfect way to spend a night with friends. I’m glad you enjoyed the BBQ!
