Los Angeles, California: Lisa and Lenny invited us – and twenty of their closest friends – for a barbeque this afternoon to celebrate Father’s Day. Lisa and I cooked all morning, while DT and Lenny cleaned-up the back garden and set-out folding tables/chairs for the guests. DT even washed a few windows.
The weather was again just perfect and their lovely garden provides a lot of shade in the afternoon.
The menu? Grilled truffle burgers, veggie burgers, assorted chicken sausages, mac & cheese, corn salad, fruit salad – with little organic turkey hot dogs for Leo and his little pals. I do not need to mention Lenny made his Prize Winning Onion Dip, right?
Our Girl invented this salad – corn kernels with grape tomatoes, green onion and crumbled feta with a light oil and vinegar dressing. She also baked Blondies & Brownies.
I contributed my famous mac & cheese – plain for the children, and then another version for the adults with garlic, onion, green & yellow peppers, green chilies and jalapenos.
This evening, after appetizers and catching-up with their friends, Lenny and DT grilled the meat and then we all sat down to enjoy a lovely evening meal.
Though maybe one of the hosts was a little overly excited about the party balloons (or as he says, ahboos) to eat much dinner.
We think it was a very successful party. Everyone had a good time and the food was most excellent. Lisa and Lenny have a great group of friends and we really enjoy getting to know them all – not to mention all their adorable children.
We hope you all had a wonderful Father’s Day!
