One of the best things about summertime is undoubtedly the cookouts and barbecues. We certainly enjoyed ourselves yesterday at our neighbors house where the hospitality was unmatched. I wish I had taken more photos to demonstrate the spoils of our labor in the form of glorious food plates and leftovers but I didn't.

Here is a sampling of the many palate pleasers offered to us:
Margaritas (blended to perfection by Johnnycakes!)
Pork tenderloin - seasoned in honey, soy sauce and garlic chili paste.
Corn on the Cob - grilled with the husk on
Guacamole (a la butters)
Fruit salad ( a beautiful one, I might add, with a ton of variety)
French apple pie
Homemade Black and White cookies
Peanut Butter brownies
A local restaurant even donated delicious watermelon salsa, broccoli , bacon and cheese salad, pasta salad and potato salad. Our neighbors really have the connections!
I hope we can squeeze a few more of these events in before summertime rolls to an end. What about you? Has anyone been to some great barbecues and cookouts this summer?
