What!? No proper “Happy New Year” and all? How rude of me! :P

Hope everyone is having a great start this year. I know i am.. Got a feeling this year will be better than last! *wink*

So, barbeque.

I’ve been to countless of them to be honest but to organize one? This gotta be my first. Kinda intimidating even though it was just for the family. Psssttt : i’ve got fussy father who loves nothing but steamed fish and stir fry vegetables! Thankfully, he also has a soft spot for beef, when it’s executed perfectly. I started marinating the beef the night before. I didn’t exactly refer to any recipes, everything was done based on agaration. Aiyo, I’m such a risk taker hor!

What went into beef : salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika and a teeny weeny bit of cumin. It was GOOD!

I always thought starting a fire was easy peasy. BOY, was i wrong or was i wrong!

It took the men a hellavu effort to start the fire. We were lucky because the father was there to help out otherwise we might just end up chewing on the RAW steaks. HAHA!

What’s on the plate :

Grilled steaks, apple and walnut salad, chips, sausages, grilled shrooms..

And then, we also have clams in white wine, grilled prawns and squid, marinated with just salt and pepper.

The men needed some carbohydrate in their meal so, a few servings of sweet potato is a must. Not too shabby for a first time organizer eh? ;)


How did my steaks fare?


Medium rare.


Of course, for the kiddos.. BBQ equates to marshmallowwwwwwwwww! They didn’t know that of course but as their wonderful mommy *coughs*, i just wanted to indulge them a little. They were so excited and happy!

It was a fun night alright. :)
