Weekend Snapshot #7: BBQ in Winter Time

Last Saturday, we helped a family friend buy their BBQ grill and they invited us for a BBQ dinner on Sunday.

I marinated some pork bbq, but in my mind, I never thought I'd be the one to cook. I wore my wool coat that day because the temp is somewhere in the -20C. Yes, it is very, very cold. And because I ended up being in charge of the cooking, I wore my son's winter jacket. Yes, he is almost a grown up in size but not mentally.

The other picture will show how much snow we had since December. Too bad its already dark, or I am prepared to have my kids make a snowman and snow angel.

We also had salmon, pork ribs and chinese tikoy [rice cake] to welcome the year of the Ox.

I've been known to picnic in the snow. With the right clothes and the right food, it's all good!

Carver said...

That sounds like a lot of fun. Great shots.

Wow! Look at the think snow beside the grill. And the BBQ looks good. I'm sure it's delicious.

BTW, I recommend you to finish the book first before watching the movie =) have fun!

Hi Sandy,
Really? We should try that one too.

Hi Carver,

Hi Sheryl,
I go in and out of the house while cooking... I couldn't stand to be outside the whole time too.

Hi Liz,
Thanks! I am almost done with the book.

JO said...

Hi Girlie,
It is still very cold! And grilling did take some time too coz of the weather.

Hi Maiylah.
It was yummy! Our next BBQ has already been set.

Hi Dyes,
It's a good thing there's no wind that day.

Hi Raquel,
Whatever the weather may be, it is fun to have a BBQ, especially with friends around.

what a scene ~ BBQ in the snow! Something we would never be able to do here....

Hi Rach,
It was cold, but it was fun at the same time.

Hi Fenny,
It will be something for you to do when you travel to a winter city during winter time.
