Dinner with C & T

On Thursday our friends C, T and baby J came over for dinner. SP and I went to the local farmer's market and an Italiam market to get provisions. Dinner was a smorgasboard of summer, including tomatoes and basil from my garden with fresh mozzarella:


We also had more of the beets I roasted last weekend with some fresh goat cheese and arugula:


C & T aren't fans of goat cheese, so I made half the salad without it:


SP thought macaroni salad would be good:


After all the hubbub about Cook's Country recipes I feel guilty for using one of their recipes, but it worked out well. I found this recipe by simply Googling the title.

In keeping with the summer theme we decided to have burgers. We bought some fresh ground beef at the farmer's market:


... which were juicy and flavorful from the grill. We had them on rolls from the Amish bakery, which is also where we got the pumpkin gems for dessert:


It was good to see C, T and baby J. Thanks for a lovely evening!
