On Saturday we decided to have a family cookout and break in our grill and dutch oven! We had fun! It started sprinkling right about the time we were ready to get started, so we headed out front where there is a covered area. We used a scrap piece of counter top to protect our landlord's cement from the coals... it stunk dreadfully, but did the job! Clara had a great job toddling around and trying to be in the thick of things. Daddy had to assembly the grill, so some of Clara's "helping" was more like "helping Daddy get a headache!" Anyway, Momma snapped pictures like crazy! Here are a bunch of them! Enjoy!
Clara and the dutch over how-to / recipe book.
Parts for the new grill... how fun!
We had to keep an eye on that girl! She likes to be in the thick of things!
Daddy cooking! If you are wondering what on earth that is that we have the dutch oven on, it's a scrap piece of counter top. We did that to save the cement from getting black patches. We were having our BBQ out front in the covered area because of the rain!
We decided to try baking hamburger buns as our first project in our new dutch oven. Here they are rising!
And here they are all done!!! We were so pleased with how they turned out. They were a little under-done on the bottom, so we will need to do a little adjusting next time, but we still considered it a success!!
