The (Food) Festivities Continue

Saturday was our final graduation BBQ. We had a "small" group of around twenty. Aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends...they were all there. Of course, when you have that many people coming to eat, you'd better have a mess of food. In addition to the grilled chicken, I made.....

calico baked beans.....

broccoli salad.....

fruit salad.....

pineapple upsidedown cake.....

and raspberry rhubarb crisp. Hey!!! What happened to the raspberry rhubarb crisp?!!! Apparently, everyone ate it up so fast that I wasn't able to get a picture. But trust me, it was great!!!

And speaking of rhubarb. Check out this monster plant that is in our backyard. No, we didn't plant it. It was already here when we moved in. The past two summers it has grown larger than ever before. As you can see, there is plenty more rhubarb to make another crisp. Next time I'll make sure to snap a pciture before it's devoured by the natives!


  1. Ohhh yum, you're making my mouth water!

  2. Oh my, I was full, and then I looked at your blog. Hmmn...wonder what is down in the fridge for snacking...

  3. That all looks wonderful! Did you have enough leftovers to take a day off cooking? And when does YOUR summer vacation start?! LOL!

  4. I could just about taste that pineapple upside down cake! Doesn't look like it lasted long!
