hosted a little bbq last night w/the usual suspects, minus a. who had to work (sad!). i made guacamole (avocado, onion, tomato, lemon juice, cumin, pepper, salt, cilantro) and coleslaw (cabbage, jicama, carrots, cilantro, white wine vinegar, olive oil, lime juice, pepper, salt, cayenne) and grilled up some veggie sausages. it occurred to me that my group of friends alone could probably keep Boca financially solvent. maybe they could sponsor us.
in addition to the Boca products, we had a mozzarella tomato basil salad, pasta salad, potato salad, and tofu tomato basil salad. and jen contributed a massive watermelon. beer was provided by the people who came to the going away party i held at my house last week.
summer bbq's are just the best. at my place, everyone gravitates towards the rather small back porch, right by the grill. maybe if i moved the grill to the front porch, people would hang out there. it's worth a shot. but i just adore sitting outside in the (finally!) beautiful michigan weather, eating good food, and hanging out with friends who rock. sigh. i'm going to miss it.
