IMG_1161A totally mellow barbecue with friends this evening was just my speed, and a perfect way to welcome spring. This is the only photo I took.

Ian grilled a variety of steak, asparagus, eggplant and yellow peppers. Britta made pasta salad with artichoke hearts, parmesan, black beans, tomatoes and a secret greek vinegar that seems like nothing but makes a salad sing. And there was corn on the cob! For the kids, there were dogs and fries.

I made cookies which I will tell you about tomorrow, because I’m bushwhacked from a day of post-operative feline care.
