Pioneer Day and Old Friends

It was Pioneer Day here in Utah...the day we here remember the first white settlers in Utah who arrived on the 24th of July 1847...
It's a state holiday and all kinds of fun activities but I commemorated it with two old but still dear friends with a wonderful trip to Archivers...a terrific Scrapbook supply store and Lunch at Mimi's "my" favorite out to eat place!
I have known both of my friends S and D since HS and even though we live far apart we still are good friends.
I also have posted the family photo from our cook out dinner in the backyard with whoever could come LOL
Dinner was steaks, yummy Lime/Tequila marinade Chicken breasts and polish sausage from the grill, chips and salsa, grilling beans, homemade Mac n Cheese (sort of low carb)and a cut up zucchini from the garden. Told DH we would have Zucchini every night now until frost! LOL We have started giving it away as well..."look out here they come with more zucchini to give away!"
For desert we had s'mores for those who could handle the sugar and I made a mixed fruit cobbler that I served either sugar free or low fat ice cream depending on your needs! Still have plenty of cobbler so come on over!
No sewing or quilting today...

Your Pioneer Day dinner sounds wonderful! I wish we could talk the gardeners into allowing us to have a little bit of the roof garden for veggies.

What a wonderful time you had! We didn't really do anything special but I did get some sewing in. Happy Pioneer Day.
