BBQ

Last night we had a little gathering...our first BBQ of the summer! We had a blast, Elizabeth made this great asian slaw...(I need to ask her for the recipe) Jenna made a salad with the bounty of our community garden! Fresh lettuce is so yummy!
We had burgers and spiked lemonade, blackberry crisp with vanilla ice cream and lots of laughs. The mosquitoes were fended off by yard spray. The dogs next door were quiet. The weather was cool but not too chilly. All was right with the backyard BBQ gods!
Here's the view from the back of the yard...Rob took this one.

here's some recipies

Jenna's Dressing
1/2c olive oil
1/3c balsamic vinegar
3 cloves minced garlic
1/2tsp salt
1 tablespoon fresh herb(take your pick...chives, basil, thyme, parsley)
