Celebrating: The First Day of Summer

To celebrate the first day of summer on Saturday, we ate a lot of delicious, summery foods.  We feasted on ...

Deviled eggs:

Seafood pasta salad:

A cucumber salad:

Bruschetta (on freshly toasted crostini):

We also had some new (to us) cheeses:

As well as grilled chicken skewers and lobster tails:

For dessert, there were fresh-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookies:

Ready to go in!
And fruit pizza:

We were full, tired, and ready to call it a night after a long day, and a LOT of food!  Sunday, we just relaxed, and stopped by what we've decided will be our new local watering hole, the Western Pizza down the street.  We shared some lasagna and wings, and had leftovers for lunch the next day.

How was your weekend?  
Did you do anything to celebrate the first day of summer?

All that food looks amazing -- as always! I want that chocolate chip cookie recipe. I'm always looking for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe :)

We didn't do anything special to celebrate the first day of summer but we did spend a lot of time outside last weekend!

Yum! All of that food looks amazing!!

We had our party on Saturday but didn't realize that it was the first day of summer when we planned it. We didn't really eat any summery foods that day, besides watermelon, but we played lawn games which feels summery!
