We had wonderful weather this weekend and decided to have one last BBQ. We actually had my sister, bil, and my nephew over. They introduced us to Raclette Grilling. Yum. It’s a Swiss thing and my bil is swiss. Well, you know, somewhere in his past.
So we set up the backyard one more time.
Yes, the table cloth doesn’t go with the dishes. I’ll remedy that next summer…
We had a well stocked bar table…of course. You’d expect anything less from us?
Complete with champagne chilling in a Cardinals’ bucket to serve up with the chocolate fondue we had for dessert. Yum. (2 – 11 oz packages of chocolate chips, 1 cup of whipping cream. Heat in fondue. Very, very yummy. Served with strawberries and pound cake for dipping in it.)
We had just a touch of moonlight and did turn on the heaters by the end of the evening. . .and did I mention we ate way, way too much? We seem to do that with my sister and brother-in-law.
We put out the lights on the arbor for one last time for the season. Sigh. The end of summer. Official now.
Oh, here is a raclette in case you were clueless like SuperGuy and I.
