Daily Photo: Salute the Chef

Last night we had friends for dinner. It was a nice relaxed afternoon and evening of hanging out, watching the Belmont Stakes, harvesting salad in the garden and grilling.

The salad was fantastic (all local but the organic California tomatoes), the two local chickens were grilled by Mike to perfection, the potatoes were roasted goodness. Unfortunately the asparagus got a little charred, but oh well, it still disappeared so it couldn’t have been that bad…

One friend brought an appetizer of pita’s spread with cream cheese and sliced cucumber – seriously so good. The other made blueberry cobbler from scratch – mmmmmm. Potluck dinners are my favorite kind, particularly when we can play to everyone’s strengths.
