time for a grill out!

getting people together for dinner parties is one of my favorite things. and in summer, that so often means grilling out!
and what better occasion to get together at a friend’s place, pull out all of the lovely vintage tableware and cook!
we had two grills going…one for veggies and one for meats.
we grilled a bit of butternut squash, apple, and potatoes with thyme.
friends brought tabbouleh (made with herbs straight from her garden!),
and there were some fabulous dipping sauces too… like a homemade barbecue, spicy chipotle, and my favorite-a chipotle mayonnaise!
for dessert, we also enjoyed a homemade pear schnapps and grilled pears brushed with molasses over vanilla bean ice cream…but it was all gone before i even thought to take photos!
have a lovely weekend, everyone!
