farewell


The summer wouldn't have felt complete without at least one backyard campfire and BBQ.
So last weekend we had some good friends over for a little good-bye summer celebration.
Not that I want to say good-bye quite yet...
So we started with some Peach Juleps.
Yum- who knew peach, mint, fresh peaches and bourbon would be such a a great combo?
Even better served with 2 hour slow cooked ribs with hickory smoker wood chips, homemade coleslaw, fresh peaches & cream Ontario corn and fresh baked corn bread muffins.
De-lish.
Our back-yard smelled amazing with all that wood burning- and so did (does) our house as I forgot and left all the windows open.
Ah well, nothing like your pillow smelling like a campfire to remind you of summer.
And it wouldn't really be summer without S'mores or a version of....

S'mores oatmeal cookies.
Yum.
Plus we had to roast a few on the fire to make things really feel official.
So fun and I'm sad it's come to an end.
Butternut squash soup anyone?

I was one of the guests and will confirm that it was one of the best nights of our summer and that the food was delicious, starting with the juleps and ending with the cookies. The Petite Gourmand is a pro when it comes to entertaining!

HEY!!! I just spent $4.50 on a magazine just because I recognized two pretty faces on the cover!!! I was really excited in Shoppers when I spotted it...my girls kept asking me who was on the cover and why was I smiling. You both look amazing! Hope you don't mind that I commented here, I have no other way of telling you...delete if you didn't want this here.
