Memorial Day Cookout at Cassi's

Most of our friends had the day off today, and since Cassi has the best grill (and a new crib), we partied at her house. Cassi threw some yummy tofu & veggie kabobs, veggie burgers, veggie dogs, and corn on the grill. By the way, Cassi has a vegan blog too, The Pretty in Pink Vegan.

And she filled a kiddie pool with beer, water, and ice. (Okay, well, ice was added after this shot).

And she made Watermelon Margaritas using tequila and fresh watermelon juice that she made in her juicer. These were so refreshing on this hot, hot afternoon!

Here's Paul and I waiting for the food to come off the grill.

Here's my first plate — Tofu & Veggie Kabob, Veggie Dog, Vegan Macaroni Salad (that's what I brought!), and Veggie Stir-fry (that's what Greg brought).

And here's plate number two — Cassi's Lime & Sea Salt Corn, Chips and Dale's Homemade Pico, Guacamole, and Salsa.

Megan and Joey were a little late to the party.

But they brought Imagine Vegan Cafe's Spinach-Artichoke Dip and Chips (Megan works at Imagine!). So yes, I had plate number three.

And Stephanie was there, so you know that means dessert.

So I had to have plate number four — Dale's Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake (so good!), Stephanie's Chocolate Eclair Cake and her Rhubarb Crumb Cake, and Neopolitan So Delicious Ice Cream (from Rhiannon and Forrest). Sadly, my desserts don't look as pretty on the plate as they tasted in my mouth.

Needless to say, I'm stuffed now. But I think we got summer grillin' season off to a fine start!

Such fine food definitely deserves four plates. A Chocolate Éclair cake? I wish your friend could ship that all the way to Canada.
