It's not just potluck anymore…

 

Last Wednesday, we had a good crowd of 400 for our hamburger cookout.  Here’s a look at the dining room scene.  We hope to see you again next week. Bring your friends!

The S’mores Bars were a pretty big hit.  They are really gooey and rich (and a pain to cut), but worth the trouble I think.  Here’s the recipe for 1 pan.  We made 12!
