Backyard Barbecue

Last Saturday, we had a backyard barbecue with few of our friends. Just to test run our newly-purchased barbecue pit. Lol. It was an ad hoc decision from me but all in all we managed to successfully pulled it off, as simple as possible (but tasty of course!). ;)


Root-beer float
Salad with thousand island dressing
Baked potato wedges with creamy cheesy sauce + mayonnaise
Grilled sausages
Grilled beef steaks (medium-well!)
Beef kebabs

1 1/2 tsp of coarsely cracked black pepper
2 cloves of garlic
1 stalk of Rosemary leaves
