4th of July Festivities

We had some friends over last night for a lit­tle 4th of july shindig; it turned out rather awe­some. As with most of our friendly gath­er­ings it was pot-luck style. I made Ground Venison Burgers with a Coffee Spice rub that were amaz­ing. I also used a pur­ple cab­bage and some fresh cord we got from our CSA along with some hot pep­pers (includ­ing some cayenne from our gar­den!), car­rots, lime, red wine vinea­gar and cilantro to make a spicy south­west­ern slaw. Keith and Laurie brought along an amaz­ing whole grain mus­tard warm potato salad. Carey & Jared brought some hot dogs and brats. It was fantastic!

For dessert Megan made the most amaz­ing tri­fle! Using some peaches from the CSA along with straw­ber­ries and blue­ber­ries she layy­ered the fruit with poud cake and an out of this world lemon curd. it was unbelievable.
