Congrats to Bethany and Jeremy, who are graduating from UNC and NC State! ( I say, Go DUKE!)
I started the evening with a small glass of wine –
And nibbled on some aps –
mostly carrots –
And some rosemary cheese on an apple
A pita with hummus and baked brie
And I had a few Stacy’s Pita chips that were awesome!
This was a true Southern cookout – a huge cooker of BBQ (the photo didn’t turn out 🙁 ), a keg of beer, baked beans, cole slaw, scalloped potatoes and a keg of beer!
I am sorry Matt missed this cookout because they had an awesome local beer – Bad Penny Brown Ale by Big Boss Brewing Co. in Raleigh. It was a dark, thick, roasted stouty beer.
Our very good family friend Lisa joined me for some keg conversation! I had a half glass
My dinner plate – a small bit of everything
I had a taste of each of these FABULOUS cakes, but I didn’t finish this plate. Taste everything, eat nothing!! Plus 3 strawberries in homemade whipped cream –
Yum! I am pleased with the evening. Small bites carried me through again feelin’ good and not too full.
Now I’m snuggling with Lillis Billis in my PJs and hope to do some reading
