Grilling and Chilling

Why is it that so many people think that the summer is over after the 4th of July?  Over?????
I think it's just begun!  With all of July ( well, most ) and all of August ahead of us we still have so much to look forward to!  Just this past weekend, I got to spend a lovely day at the lake with family and friends and share some amazing dishes.  Is it just me or does everyone think that food cooked by someone else always taste so much better than what you made yourself?
Looking at these pictures, I wish I had stuffed myself just a bit more!
I guess I'll have to wait until the next gathering.

Finger Licking Barbeque Chicken with homemade barbeque sauce.

Tomato and Cheese Sausage with Peppers and Onions.

Tortellini Salad.

Sicilian Pasta Salad.

Fresh tomatoes topped with fresh mozzarella, basil, olive oil and cream cheese pinwheels.

Did I mention that this chicken was marinated in buttermilk to keep it extra moist.

Homemade Beans!

Ready... Set.... Go!!!!!!!

I told you it was finger licking good!

Now that's a happy group!
