BBQ Dinner Party at Dick and Jan's - June 7

It's summer time in Sacramento so it's time to fire up the backyard BBQ. Dick and Jan just returned from Hawaii after visiting their daughter Brooke. Not letting grass grow under their feet they threw a BBQ dinner party at their lovely home in Carmichael. The first of the summer season.

Joining me were my cycling buddies and their spouses - Peter and Susan, Eric and Marie, Herb and Kay, Jim (w/o JoAnn who was a little under the weather).

I always look forward to a gathering at the Fraschetti's since they are masters at hosting a nice party with plenty of tasty food and the fine wine flowing freely.

The first course, plenty of tasty appetizers and wine

Me and my date, Jim, with a glass of Penman Springs Cab . . . a fine wine!

Our host, never to be without a full glass

Fine conversation amongst great friends

The beautifully landscaped backyard is a perfect place for a gathering

Dick and Jan take great pride growing roses

A pool graces their well landscaped backyard

All the fixins' served with the main dishes - all very tasty!

Guests diving in!

It was a fine party - thanks Dick and Jan
