5th of July -

in attendance: Mycroft, Moxie, Solids, The Count, Zeus, and Wasabi.

There were mountains of food on the 4th. So many mountains, that before the feasting even began we made plans for Movers to be leftovers on the 5th. Except there was so much food we didn't even cook on the 4th that it was hard to actually call it leftovers, really, it was just more new food.

We had burgers with delicious toppings and seasonings by The Count, experimental (and I thought pretty good) mushroom tofu burgers, shrimp, assorted actual leftovers like sweet potato and cherries and home-made ice cream and cheesecakes and cauliflower and cheese, and these little beauties, envisioned by Solids and executed by Solids, Moxie, and Mycroft:

Pineapple wrapped in bacon, cooked on the grill.

Mycroft is attempting to turn the bacon-wrapped pineapple, although he kept catching on fire.

close-up: bacon grease + charcoal = lots and lots o' fire. yummy scary fire.

Following the feasting we played our new favorite game (besides croquet, bocce ball, wiffle ball, miniature golf, etc.) SceneIt?. It is great fun.
