A Garden Party

Dear Chicago House,

Chicago teen threw a fun garden party yesterday and despite a rainy start to the day we had a lovely sunny afternoon.

As usual she put together the menu and with a little help from me, we whipped it all together.
The menu was kept light, nobody wants to stuff themselves stupid on a hot summer afternoon and the main event of the party was an ice cream tasting so she wanted eager bellies for that too.

We had a selection of elegant finger foods including

Fancy sausage on a stick

Quite possibly the worlds daintiest sandwiches

and last but not least a selection of home made ice creams for a taste test. She made four flavors, vanilla, coffee, mint choc chip and strawberry lemonade. They were all so yummy.
