Hamburger Cupcakes and Shortbread Fries

How cool are these cupcakes? A few weeks back we hosted a birthday party for our friend Stu. We were advised to expect 10-12 people at the most. Which is why we were quite surprised when we had about 16 guests show up! I think there was a point in the evening where we all formed a standing circle around our modest basement suite.

It turned out to be the perfect backyard pot luck with quite an array of summer foods ranging from ample trays of fresh veggies and fruits (including watermelon), pasta salad, cornbread, chips and dip, meatballs and sausage rolls among many other dishes. Last but not least were the hamburger cupcakes and shortbread fries that Stu's loving wife Rachel laboriously created.

A game of bocce ball followed by the near destruction of a neighborhood tree (there may or may not have been a few monkeys trying to free a lost Frisbee) it went off without a hitch. This was certainly one party where one could say "more the merrier" was in fact the most truthful way to sum up the evening.
