Welcoming the summer with a barbecue

espa帽a 7 de jul. de 2014



That’s one thing my friends and I try to do as often as we can. Gather all together, tons of food, lots of beer and chill. Good vibes. I really enjoy those meetings because as I’m the only one that is living abroad聽(not in Spain)聽I tend to miss much stuff that is going on here, so I use that kind of events to stay updated about my friends’ life and adventures.

We always have kind of the same problem:聽too much food.聽Really. We try our best to not buy much more than needed, but we never succeed.

In Spain, and especially in the region I grew in we do the barbecue in a different way: as you can see on the second picture, the branches that we use to get the hot ashes are from聽vine plants(yes, the ones where the grapes grow from).聽La Rioja聽is a very famous county for its wine, that’s why we have lots and lots of vine plants all over the landscape.

I do feel the difference when using different聽types of聽firewood.聽

Oh, and I forgot to mention: we almost burnt to the ground my friend’s place. But that’s another story to tell!
