As promised, here are photos from my Memorial Day cookout (thanks Nick):

I made 1/3-pound burgers with sauteed onions, red bell peppers and celery mixed in the meat.

For the not meat-eaters, portabello mushroom caps marinated in balsamic vinegar and topped with the aforementioned onions, red peppers and celery, with a sprinkle of asiago cheese.

I'll claim it was for proper heat distribution, but I really just wanted to make a pentagram out of meat.

Don't call me "tater salad." I bite. (This particular potato salad is seasoned nicely with cayenne pepper to make the flavor explode on your tongue. That's what she said.)

Real Boston baked beans, made from scratch. Wicked delish.

Here's some of the other food that people made/brought. Those are Erin's fruit kabobs on the left: not sure why we didn't grill any of those. Those are Nick's Oatmeal Creme Starcrunch Pies in the front under glass. Holy heart attack...

If you were here, this plate might've been yours. Those peppers and onions on the dog and burger were fried in bacon grease for extra flavor...

The cook finally gets to eat. Hooray! Can't wait for the 4th of July to do it all over again.
