Asher's birthday lunch

We had a party for Asher's friends and their families this weekend. Here's the menu we did:

Hamburgers and hot dogs
Black Bean Salad
Fruit tray
Vegetable tray
Buttermilk cake with lemon cream cheese frosting I used the recipe in the Gourmet cookbook, which is reduced by about 1/4 of this recipe. The cake came out fine, but it took A LOT longer to bake.

Guacamole
6 advocados
3 finely minced garlic cloves (further mushed into a paste with a little garlic)
2 1/2 limes juiced
salt to taste

Dice and mash advocadoes, add everything else.
