FSO- Outdoor Food

Make sure you go check out my 'Reflection' Post picked by Audrey, before you read this 'Outdoor Food' devised by the help of Girlichef...

Busy with family from May to August, work, school and classes starting up, well, I am squeaking by with these photos from my hubby's birthday party this past weekend. Man, was it all good...


















Basting the corn on the cob for the grill, along with some bourbon salmon, and orange duck legs...



















Cranking up the old fashioned ice cream maker for some...



















Exercise? Oh yeah, gotta make hubby work for his indulgences...




















Like a nice bowl of Honey Apple Cinnamon Custard/Ice Cream. This will melt quick so we eat it on the patio...




















How about some cookies to go with that sweet treat?


















...and then the next day when you get up, we will head out and dance it off; while sipping on some wine in the vineyard...

















As the Mambo band plays some tunes...




















Since Elvis cannot go outside, we bring him in a little 'Outdoor Food', a pot of wheat grass for him to nibble on...



















Thanks for stopping by, and I have added a camera pic on the right side of my site you can take that will direct you to our main Friday Shoot Out Team Blog (you add it to your layout if so desired), so go on over and visit the other participants!

Next weeks theme is listed over there as well, and that is another fun creative road for us to travel...

There is a largely outdoor cat on our street named Elvis, but they do call him in on occasion. Very loudly. And it is very funny to hear.

I have been cutting back on carbs, but I will admit to indulging in Jersey corn. I just couldn't make ice cream. I'd eat it all.~Mary

You know the meaning of great outdoor food, and how to prepare it. We could be good friends, or even partners. You prepare it. I eat it.

Rebecca said...

It all looks delicious...but the homemade ice cream, to die for I'm sure.

Hey ChefE. Thanks for stopping by. The image you asked about are indeed vanilla wafers. They were topped with a cream cheese type pudding mixed with chocolate chips and the almond slices.

Can't wait to hear what you turn them int
