Al Fresco Summer Smorgasbord

Boy oh boy have I been a cooking machine today! Whew :: my kitchen has definitely felt some love today! But, it’s all been for a very happy reason :: two of my closest friends have newborn babies and so I”m bringing them dinners so they can enjoy their baby and not worry about having to cook!

What do you bring as a dinner to a family with a newborn baby? Well I thought and thought about what to bring and decided to stray from the typical “gift” meal or a casserole or  lasagna and instead embrace the warm summer weather we’ve been having and I decided to put together an al fresco summer smorgasbord that these new parents can enjoy warm or cold.

So, what’s on the menu? Check out the photos below and click on them to link to the recipes :: hope they like it!
