We decided to have a little party to welcome the near arrival of summer at our house last Friday over Memorial Day weekend. I wanted to have a fire-pit in the back yard. My oldest daughter and I gathered the rocks. My husband dug the hole and collected fire-wood.
The fire made the party more casual and relaxed-like camping in the back yard. We laughed and talked as we sat around it.
I served lots of food. We had shrimp cocktail, meatballs, hummus with feta and vegetables, chips and queso.
For desert I baked a chocolate crown cake, soft lemonade sugar cookies and served the peach and pecan empanada's I made last week. I think the party was a hit.
I am so happy summer is on it's way!
