Summer Cookin'

I love summer. I love the sunshine, the green grass, working in my garden, going for walks, riding bikes, and wading at the beach. But what do I love most about summer? Barbecue! (or "grilling out," as my Ohio relatives say). The Fourth of July feast this year consisted of cheeseburgers off the grill, potato chips, watermelon, my mom's baked beans, and my potato salad:

For dessert, I got all theme-y and made a flag cake:

Everyone loved it and said it's a keeper! It was tasty. And big . . . still have some left. In fact, I think I shall go and sneak myself a piece right now.

Dinner last night: heavenly halibut, cous cous, peas, green salad
