We have been trying to get together with a group of our friends since Memorial Day and our schedules just haven't lined up until this past Saturday. Kind of last minute Dave and I threw together a small get together with our friends, Rob & Lindsay their kids Mady and Mason, David and Tiff and their son Noah, and Joe & Christen.
I decided to make Mexican food because it works very well with my famous salsa so the menu was planned to be:
Steak & Chicken Fajitas w/ all the toppings
Corn Casserole (made by Tiff)
Salsa and Chips
Veggies and Dip
Fruit and Dip
Pistachio Torte (made by Lindsay)
Well late in the week I was watching the news and they had a big piece on possible salmonella in jalapeno peppers so all the grocery stores took them off the shelves which meant no Salsa. I still went ahead with the Mexican food though. Of course you can't have a Mexican meal without Margarita's and Cornoa's so all the guest brought the beers and Dave and I provided the rest.
Just as the food was ready to eat a small storm came in so we were all stuck inside to eat. Thankfully it didn't last long so after the meal all the guys headed out back with the kids while us ladies stayed inside for some nice girl talk.
David, Tiff, and Noah left around 8:30 because of their long drive and the sleepy baby so at that point Lindsay, Christen, and I joined the guys and kids out back. I didn't think about pictures until after David and Tiff left so I don't have any of them but here are a few of the rest of us.

It was a very nice evening and I think this may become an annual tradition for Dave and I. Next year will be bigger and better. I already have a million ideas on things to do and eat.
