The Mad Social Whirl

Have just returned from back-to-back outdoor social events featuring mass quantities of food. Am covered with sweat, sunscreen, and (on my ankles) bug bites, and am much too well fed.

Party A featured mainly cold foods, including slices of sandwich wraps, salads, cold meats, and fruit, followed by ice cream and very nice lemon poundcake. Party B featured flame-grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, spicy pork ribs, veggie crudites, and potato and cucumber salads, followed by strawberry and peach shortcakes and smillaraaq's very evil chocolate brownies.

I am in a food-induced stupor.

Holy crap, that food sounds so good, and I'm still full from our dinner! We did BBQ chicken on the grill, homemade potato salad (that turned out really well, if I do say so myselt!) and steamed fresh broccoli from this week's CSA share.

But brownies and lemon pound cake......... *drools* Pound cake is one of my worst weaknesses - I don't dare have it in the house. (And I haven't had any in SO long!!!)

We had the benefits of two very talented bakers!

(I hear you! Having it at someone else's house is the best ... .)

Drooling over brownies, are you? Enjoy! ^_^

I forgot to pack my camera, but Cho was kind enough to snap a photo for me. I'd love to get my hands on the lemon poundcake recipe, it was lovely - not too heavy or cloying at all, just delicious lemony goodness. <3

Yes, it was a good day, although tiring! (I got up earlier than I might have, to make pasta salad for the first party.)
