had a BBQ ?

as follow up from the who's cut their lawn yet - who's had the next step and fired up the barbie ?

despite the weather gurus calling for 90% chance of rain down here today it's been a lovely day and after a bit of hard graft in the garden the BBQ is almost up to temp and a rack of lamb is happily marinating it the kitchen.

( and I'm happily marinating in the garden. )

Re: had a BBQ ?

Don't forget to rub in plenty of BBQ sauce.
Maybe put some on the lamb as well.

Re: had a BBQ ?

Sounds delicious! Personally I can't wait to have a proper BBQ - forecast looks grim this week though! I'm going to have to take my disponsable ones with me to my new flat as it looks like it's going to be raining until I move in. If anyone fancies having me round though, I wouldn't say no.

Re: had a BBQ ?

We had a BBQ yesterday and very tasty it was too.
Weather has certainly been better than forecast today and we've just spent a lovely afternoon at a birthday party on the edge of the lake. We spent the whole time outside and now I'm looking a bit like I've been on the grill myself. Must remember the sunscreen in future.

Re: had a BBQ ?

MG's SIL even bbqs in winter so no real season start for us.

In fact he is outside right now and the wind keeps blowing and produces so much smoke, I hope the neighbors won't call the fire brigade....

Had a BBQ by the river yesterday. Sat in the shade (sun behind me) and still managed to get burnt! Still the food was good!

Re: had a BBQ ?

We bought a new grill a few weeks ago when the weather was beautiful. But then, of course, everything changed. But finally got to use it yesterday.

Re: had a BBQ ?

How many people had a barbecue and mowed the lawn on the same day?

Cheers,
Nick

What happened to your font?


Anyways, you guys suck.
I hate anyone who is able to BBQ on their lawn. Or, even has their own backyard, hahaha. Bourgeois.

I go cram, povre moi.

Yeah, that's the plan. I like public premises for messy food events, too, all sorts of unexpected folks usually show up.

Food is good. Bonap.

I had a barbecue at the city-owned electro-grill in Seefeld on the lake-shore yesterday. Sitting on the lake-shore, seeing some young chaps already swimming in the lake, listening to Peruvian music nearby, reading a bit, was very nice. Even if my meal was not noble, consisting of two Cervelats and some beer. Today, I limited my program to a visit at the "lake of Glattpark" , enjoying sunshine, beer and some crime novel ("Aqua Alta" by Donna Leon, in the DiogenesVerlag). And then two nice stays on the balcony.

Back to the Electro-Grills, there is one at the lake near Zürihorn and one beside the lake-station Zch-Wollishofen (beside the Gemeinschaftszentrum). Generally the place at Zürihorn-Tiefenbrunnen offers more sunshine but the other one in summer is more pleasant. On both sides, you on Saturday-evenings and Sunday-evenings after 7pm can hear the churchbells of the Kirche-auf-der-Egg

which to me is plain nostalgia but of course only enjoyable in Summer when it is still real daylight at this time
