Neighborhood cookout

On Memorial Day, we gathered with our neighbors and had a big cookout. We all brought our own meat, brought side dishes and desserts to share. Oh, yeah ... chocolate cake.  (I also made whole grain pasta salad ... no picture, though)
I made homemade whole grain hot dog and hamburger buns ... and figured out an awesome trick to make them shiny and give them a great texture on the top. I brushed buttermilk on each of the buns before the rise, and then baked them. We all loved how they turned out!

Here is a picture of many of those gathered. We moved the chairs around all afternoon to stay in the shade.

They children played on a slip and slide and in the small baby pools. It was a fun day and we had the opportunity to get better acquainted with our neighbors. I hope we can do it again soon!
