    What is better than a relaxing summer afternoon, with a light savory repast, followed by a sweet sampling of desserts? I can't think of too many things. So, I am hoping a few of you will have openings on your dance card for July 22nd. I will prepare a light supper, will have plenty of cold drinks and will keep my fingers crossed that the weather will be lovely and we can sit outside for some wonderful food and fellowship together. You bring a prepared dessert to share with the group, plus containers to take a few yummy leftovers home.
    I live in Glen Ellyn, in the western suburbs, am in town and close to the Metra UP West Line train station. I can accommodate a Baker's Dozen. All are welcome at my table, whether you are a seasoned LTH or a more recent addition (like me) or if you are brand new and want to check us out. I look forward to seeing you all!

    P.S. I will send directions via private message as we get closer.

    1. KalamazooGal - mini panna cottas with mixed berries and buckwheat cookie panzanella

    Hi,

    I plan to attend.

    It is very close to my a major wedding anniversary, which may obligate me to cancel.

    Keeping my fingers crossed.

    My plus one is doing a cheesecake. There may also be fancy nuts.

    I am leaning towards summer fruits. But who knows what will strike my fancy. See you Sunday.

    I am looking forward to hosting you all. I have a fun and summery ‘vegetable forward’ lite supper planned.
    Also, my daughter Polly will be my +1.
    She is downstairs in my kitchen right now making homemade chocolate pasta for her chocolate lasagna!
    My plan for the dessert buffet are mini panna cottas in a jar with fresh strawberry panzanella with crumbled buckwheat cookies

    That all sounds spectacular. I'm still pondering but may end up bringing plum cake.
