We had a great cookout tonight with four of the husband’s friends from work (3 girls, 1 guy). We did burgers, they brought beer, mac and cheese and fruit salad – and a cake!
Bucket O’ Beer
I was in a beer mood tonight. Started with a Blue Moon – complete with orange slice. I was instantly drunk
Homemade potato buns, burgers, and corn ready to grill –
On the grill -
I actually had a veggie burger to keep things lighter – topped with tomato, lettuce, avocado and the best Buffalo spicy cheese -
With all the goodies -
(I had one more bite of mac n cheese and one more small portion of fruit.)
I was kind of full to have another beer, but I had one anyways. It didn’t taste as good as the first, and I’m feeling kind of dehydrated now despite 2 cups of H2O as well, but it was still fun to have in the moment.
And lastly, Carrot Cake!
I could have had a party with that icing, but I asked to be served a TINY sliver heavy on icing –
It took LOTS of willpower to not have a second real piece. I did nibble a tiny bit on the icing off the knife and such, but I’m glad I didn’t have more since I was already pretty full. And we sent the cake home with a friend, so I’m glad the temptation is gone.
I’m way too hot to keep typing – I need a cool shower before I can settle down and finish my book! I suppose we should have the AC on, but it’s such a mental commitment to turn it on that we always just keep it off and hope we survive the day until the night cools off.
