Yesterday's cookout was a great success, for which I would like to thank my friend Cindy especially. Even though she is very pregnant with her ninth child, she managed to fill out my menu with potato salad, chicken salad, a Caesar salad and bar cookies for a crowd. Others brought pasta salad, water melon and cheese cake. And I served pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, coleslaw, bean salad, baked beans and brownies. So it was an incredible spread!
The weather was beautiful. Even at 90 degrees, it was fine in the shade, and there was a breeze some of the time. When it got hot enough, we pulled out a load of water pistols and the kids went about cooling everyone off. Of course it progressed from water pistols to hurling cupfuls of water, and I don't think anyone stayed completely dry.
The day's end left me completely wiped out, but in a good way. I did have trouble falling asleep, my mind was so full of the day's fun.
