But every so often, hidden in them thar hills is a little stream with green trees and we go CRAZY. We think we are in paradise. (Actually Paradise is a little town about 38 miles north of here, but I digress).
Last night we went crazy with friends up in Water Canyon --HEY, I said it had a stream, so it can use the term "water".... and it's in a little canyon just five miles from our house. It's fun to have a cookout up there.
So, last night we had a little cookout to meet our friend's, daughter's boyfriend (man, that is a mouthful to say), who had never been west of the Mississippi. We were trying to impress him with our --section of green.
We had fun, he's a nice young man, and they seem very happy together. It was fun to get to know him a little him. (hi Katie, Hi John!)
BUT.... her mom, my Tuesday (coffee every Tuesday morning for the past 10 years, 6am. SIX A.M.) friend, Debbie E. made some awesome FOOD!!
People getting their food... (if you look close between the trees, you can see the sagebrush covered hills)
and this great fruit and vegetable salad. It had jalapenos, cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelon, onion, mango, jicama. It was sooo good.
(I didn't feel the need to take a pic of the hotdogs)
And then.... the best S'more ever. It's hard to tell, but these were the most perfect toasted marshmallows ever. I just used two 'EVER'S' in one paragraph.
I hope you got the point----it was perfect!
As we sat around eating Smores and Olive Oil Lemon cake (which I forgot to get a picture of) Sally, was looking for birds. We saw some Great Blue Heron's flying around. And a great silhouette of some trees, as the sun was setting.
It was a fun evening.
