Hope you had a safe and sane 4th of July!!!
We had a great turn out (70+ people) at our first neighborhood watch BBQ & potluck yesterday.
One of our neighbors bbq'd a whole lamb, a side of beef ribs and 2 fresh salmon.
There were tons of baked beans, a gazillion types of potato and pasta salads, and a whole table of desserts.
I don't care much for potlucks. Mostly, I don't trust the way other people prepare food . . . just the thought of somebody licking the spoon and sticking it back into the food they're preparing, just grosses me out!
But I had a bit of this and a bit of that (prepared by people I trust). I tried the lamb . . . (texture like a chicken thigh, too mushy for me) . . . but the salmon was awesome. And I had a piece of cheese cake. The cupcakes and unidentified fluffly things with gooey icing didn't even look good.
And go figure, I was half a pound down this morning.
