Let's BBQ!

June 3, 2008 - Tonight was pure eating heaven. We had an amazing dinner in Andrea's beautiful backyard, where I believe we all ate more than we thought humanly possible. L.S. fully redeemed herself with "Perfect Guacomole" and a tasty "Charred Corn Salad" (William Sonoma) for our appetizers. Lara brought a yummy "Potato Salad", Lynley some very fancy "Stuffed Artichokes" (perhaps not our favorite), and Jodi treated us to "Peasant Bread" (Favorites). Andrea's main course was Cedar-Plank Grilled Salmon with a yummy maple glaze. We polished off the evening with Bridget's "Berry Trifle" (Food Newtork) and a Lemon Yogurt Cake (from Barefoot Contessa at Home). We were entertained by Andrea's adorable children and a "Gourmet Girls Photo Session" by her husband James. We all concurred that Gourmet Group is definitely our favorite night of the month!
Quote of the Evening: "Cuz if you can't find it at Costco, you must not really need it."
