|Our Winter Barbecue|
If you're Canadian, you can attest that it's been a loooong winter--and spring has been dangled before us, kind of like a carrot to a rabbit. However, my family barbecues all year long, even in the arctic chill of winter--and we keep the flame for spring alive (literally and figuratively).
This March Break, we've had some amazing extremes of temperature. One day +10°C, another day -17°C. For those of you keeping track, that's a difference of 27°C in less than 24 hours! That's Canada for you, and two years ago I wrote about the crazy weather in Toronto on March 9th 2012 (parkas and a snow squall), vs. the weather on March 22nd, 2012 (swimsuits and children in the kiddy pool)!
|Sometimes Only a Hotdog Will Do When You're 3-Years Old!|
Today after tobogganing for hours and building snow forts, the kids decided that only hot dogs would do. After coming in from the snowy hill, they had worked up an appetite and wanted something quick and hot. My wonderful dad, nephew, and niece were also over, so my husband fired up the grill and made a barbecue of saucy pork back ribs, dogs, grilled veggies and Villaggio Italian Style Sausage Buns.
Never mind that the barbecue was buried beneath two feet of snow, there's no keeping the Canadian spirit down! In -15°C I wish to report that my hubby was wearing a parka, but he marinated the ribs and flipped the dogs wearing only a long-sleeved shirt. So Canadian, eh?
