Memorial Day, the recap

Menu:
+ Brie & bread, with fresh cherries and strawberries

+ Cedar-plank salmon BBQ'd with fresh oregano, basil and rosemary
+ Sauteed asparagus
+ BBQ'd white corn
+ Fresh mixed green salad w/tomato, mushroom & carrot shavings

+ Fried chocolate, banana, peach and strawberry pie

Company:
Two enchanting new friends, along with my beloved, who plied us with tequila and conversation till the wee hours of the morning. There were hugs hello and goodbye and interesting thoughts in between.

What we did:
We realized when we finished shopping that we're still Californians: there wasn't a rib or a steak or a bottle of bbq sauce in sight. Instead, we played in the yard and tested out the new tiki torches. We smoked and talked and giggled and pet the kitty. We lit the fire on the bbq, and finally got to use our kitchen to make dessert and still have a conversation with the non-cooks that didn't involve a lot of leaning around the doorjamb of the room (an open kitchen plan is the ONLY way to go). We tracked dirt back and forth into the house; we made good use of the chairs and table (thanks Maija & Ryan, for encouraging us to buy 'em); we made plans for future baseball games and talked about going to New Orleans.

Yep, there's hope for us after all.
