Ohhhhhhh . . . that sounds delicious. What side dishes? You could just fix a salad and be fine with that.

Still no inspiration on dessert. Y'all need to help me out - time is a-flyin'!!!!!!

Dessert: Strawberry Cinnamon Chiffon Cake
I used to make this recipe every summer, for either the 4th or my dad's birthday in July; it was always a big hit. Been a while since I've made it but dug through the recipe box to locate it....and luckily once I had the correct name I was able to find the exact recipe online....here

Friends of ours invited us over for a cookout, and I'm bringing the dessert. They have a 10 year old son, so I'm going to make strawberry ice cream pie topped w/fresh strawberries - his favorite.
Now that sounds easy enuff and I could put blueberries and strawberries on it to make it look festive. Who wouldn't like ice cream pie????

Yes, I could do strawberry/blueberry shortcake. I have a good recipe for old fashioned shortcake (the way my great grandma made it). It is very high in calories and fat - lots of butter and sugar, LOL!!!!! (but it is surely GOOD!!!)

chef ani.....I can't believe I found this, but way back in college some friends had a party and half way through, a bunch of people picked up flower pots that were scattered throughout the room and started eating the dirt! turned out it was a planned hoax, the flower pot 'dirt' was actually an oreo dirt dessert recipe. I found one online, could be a fun idea/prank:

Okay - this is really different. I am gonna print off the recipe and see what it takes to put it togther. Thank you so much, Joan, for taking the time to share! I know my family loves ice cream pie and shortcake (great suggestions!) and I would LOVE the Pavlova that SMClarke suggested . . . but this is something different and I kinda like to have a "surprise" for everyone.

Really appreciate your sharing this recipe!

Awwww - how neat! This looks like fun! LOL!!! I am gonna be having a get together for son and his fiancee later this summer, and I think this would be so much fun!!!

Eman - you continually amaze me! Thank you so much for sharing this great idea. May not use it this time . . . but I am definitely gonna print it off as this would make a very witty ending to a meal!

I am thinking I could add more than gummy worms - maybe do some kind of flowers . . . this could be a very creative process. I am gonna play w/ that recipe and see what I can create. That would be easy to add fruit to (w/ the pudding), also.

Ani, I will bbq ribs for sure. Everything homemade, dry rub, bbq sauce and 5-6 hours of top secret southern applied heat will create an aroma that makes one proud to be an American. As the ribs begin to fall off the bone, my neighbors will magically come out of their homes and visit me. I might have to hire security again this year...
