Silvana from Prague

It's summertime in Northern Hemisphere, and that means.... it's BBQ season!

And the beauty of BBQ is... there are endless options of things to BBQ! It is one of my favorite summer activities, and meals to share with friends. Or as the case of ALE, with strangers who are about to become friends 🙂
For this evening, there are no specific ingredients to prepare - bring anything that you like to put on the Q and eat. Some popular options are chicken, sausages, steak, peppers, zucchini, corn, etc etc.  Bring what you enjoy eating, and let's have an evening of meal preparation and enjoyment!
See you there!
