We invited our friends Carlos and Gloria over for a grill-out (to try out our new grill =). We decided to celebrate 4th of July early, for it won't work with their and our schedules to get together on 4th of July! Since Carlos had just come back from his FIRST trip to the USA (he plays the piano for a music group) we had a lot to talk about. We had a really nice time.
~Us eating in our backyard~
We had a yummy meal too. Phillip grilled the hamburgers, and I made homemade hamburger buns.
Phillip was able to find our first jar of dill pickles that we've eaten here in Colombia. (Not the same taste, but at least they were pickles!) Here was our "Red, White, and Blue" fruit and pineapple center piece. (the pieces of fruit were sooo yummy!)
I made this Americana Flag cake too. (I normally use coolwhip, so it's WHITE, but I knew that Carlos doesn't like coolwhip, so I used vanilla pudding this time...sort of an ANTIQUE white look to the flag. =) And I normally used blueberries for the stars, but have none here in Colombia, so used grapes. =)
~We had to move inside when it got too chilly outside.
(I took my curtains down to get them cleaned...due to the "DEPOSITS" that the bird put on them while we were gone to Medellin. UGH!!! (`~`)
We had a very fun time with Carlos and Gloria, and also enjoyed getting to use our grill too!
