I love cooking out.

I'm so glad it's been so pretty lately. It makes cookouts so much better. Last night was a fabulous example of a great cookout.

My favorite people to have over for cookouts-Allison and Matt.

BBQ chicken on the grill was oh so good.

The corn, I cooked on the grill. Unfortunately, the butter dripped down and caught my grill on fire. But that really gave the chicken a good flavor, so all is well.

And the mashed potatoes. Wow. I'm skilled at making mashed potatoes, although Allison and Jon did all the unpleasant stuff. I really just did the last step...the adding of things other than potatoes and the thourough mixing.

And the salad-I think my salads are usually the best part. And these salads were good. But everything else was so yummy that I'm not sure that was the best last night.

But, alas, I didn't make desert. So what in the world were we supposed to do other than go to Dairy Queen? I mean, I couldn't come up with anything better than that.

And then, Cloverfield, which was awesome. Kind of like Blair Witch...kind of like Godzilla, but at least twice as good as either one.

And something else awesome about the evening...at 9:30, we were done with all of that. So I didn't even have to stay up late! It was awesome.

My life is swell.
