Mom’s Birthday Barbecue


Friday was the birthday of my mother and we had very good weather and decided to drive to the garden to have a barbecue together. So, mom got a tasty birthday barbecue and we spent time together. We had the usual steaks that we often purchase, but I did visit my favorite butcher and bought shashlik. The shashlik was quite delicious, it was goulash spiked with eggplant and zucchini. My mother made a tasty salad again with tomatoes, peppers, cucumber and onions. We also had potato salad but that was a finished product but tasty anyway. I shot a lot … Continue reading Mom’s Birthday Barbecue

Barbecue Time


Yesterday we decided to have a barbecue in the evening. We drove to our garden, the weather was mixed with rain and sun. Pretty crazy and choppy, it changed every 20 minutes from sunny day to rainy, really crazy. But we have a roofed area and a garden house anyway so that the rain didn’t stop us to start the barbecue. We didn’t prepare our own salad, this time we did buy some of these ready-made salads in a store. However, they were not bad either. We had potato salad, but we also had a salad called “Party Salad”, that … Continue reading Barbecue Time

December Barbecue in the Garden


Yesterday we decided to have a barbecue in the garden. It is already quite cold outside but this didn’t stop us to go shopping and to drive to the garden. The husband of my mother came up with this idea and he convinced me and my mother. We bought some beer, different meat, potato salad and cole-slaw. We enjoyed the evening even if it was cold but we did warm our hands near the fire and we also have a small cottage with a heater in the garden, so that we could eat inside where it was warmer. I enjoyed … Continue reading December Barbecue in the Garden

Autumn Barbecue


It’s fall and already quite cold here in Northern Germany. Anyway, we got the idea to make barbecue in our garden. It’s very nice if it’s cold but if you can warm up near the fire. Sadly I didn’t take photos of the food. We made buns and ate them with sausages and mustard. But I showed sausage buns already a couple of times on my blog, I guess. A fast search brought this article up for example. It’s true, we eat sausage very often and it is tasty! Continue reading Autumn Barbecue

Tasty German Barbecue Combination


Above you can see a very typical German barbecue combination. Not that every German barbecue plate would look like the one on the photo, but I´d say you would at least always find sauerkraut and potato salad on the table, and meat or other things for sure. I used garlic dip and herb butter to make my steak even more delicious. I am a big fan of barbecues. I always laugh when people can´t await to put the meat on fire but when we are finished, people look totally exhausted because they did eat way too much. But if there … Continue reading Tasty German Barbecue Combination

Barbecue In The Garden


One of the great things about the garden of my mother and her husband is that we can also have a barbecue there. We usually did that either on the balcony of my mother or on the campground of grandma and grandpa in Salem. But now we did that also in the garden that is not far away. Anyway, while I am an autumn lover, it´s somewhat sad that it gets soon too cold to go to the garden. But we will do that next year again for sure. Continue reading Barbecue In The Garden
