BIG BBQ 2014

Is it a tradition or not?  A BIG BBQ at Cheryl’s house, this year we had 30+ people attended, a little less than last year but still pretty big 🙂  I missed a few previous parties so I was really looking forward to see my friends that I haven’t seen for a long time.  One special guest, Anita and her daughter came back from Hong Kong for a short visit.

I remember back in the days, we used to drink (alcohol) like crazy but we are not in our 20s now, so we didn’t drink much this time, hehe  The weather was super nice, we actually had concerns that it might rain but it didn’t, tons of food, lots of catching up with each others and of course it was a total madness with the kids playing bubbles 😛  At the end of the night, our stomachs were filled, some even got take out because there was just soo much food left, I couldn’t even describe the level of fun we had, just take a look at the smile/laugh in my pictures.  Huge thanks to Auntie for preparing everything and of course Cheryl for making this to happen 🙂  Hopefully we can have another party like this on the next weekend, hehe

Ceramic charcoal BBQ

Thanks Ruby and Jason for a wonderful BBQ dinner over the weekend, I have a admit Jason really out did himself and his BBQ skill is really great, or maybe it was his new BBQ ummm…  First time seeing a whole chicken being grilled in a ceramic charcoal BBQ, I was told that Jason did a lot of research, watched a lot of youtube videos to come up with this beer chicken and it was bloody fantastic!!!  And of course Ruby helped out the rest of the food too I am sure 😛  The cedar salmon was cooked just right, those little potato were crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside, plus my favorites, Chinese sausages and pork neck was tendered!!!

The night was awesome, food was delicious, poor Jason was going in and out the kitchen/yard checking on food and we spent a lot of time chatting, BS, chatting…  with all that being said, I really think Ruby and Jason should host more BBQ at their place so we can enjoy everything that CHEF Jason made 😛

Victoria Day Long Weekend 2013

My Victoria Day weekend was awesome, went to 2 house parties in 1 day which was just a blast!!!  First stop was a very last decision that Peter was going to host a small lunch BBQ at his house, it was a perfect gathering since me and Sunny hadn’t seen Peter and Kelly for a while and not to mention I was sure auntie would make good food as well!!!  Anyhow, after a few hours of being in the direct sun and stuffed stomachs, I headed to my second stop to my old colleague Doris’s house.  Surprisingly, Ray, who doesn’t show up at our gatherings very often was there too 😛  I really thought I wasn’t going to eat much but with what was on the table, huge sushi plate, a super juicy roast beef by Regina and a few more things made by Doris, not to mention we also had a birthday cake at the end of the night because it is Tony and Regina’s birthday next week, I was soo sure I would gain at least 3 pounds when I left 😛  Anyways, it was a total blast over this weekend just take a look at some of the best moments I captured 😛

Easter Long Weekend 2013

Spring has come already but it still feels like winter in Toronto but this Easter Saturday was super sunny, tho it wasn’t warm enough but we just couldn’t wait to have a BBQ 😛  We had something I never tried, not sure if you guys ever had, look at those super size clams and salmon on cedar wood below.  Not to mention I didn’t know you could cook salmon this way either, a little seasoning, a few pieces of lemons, into the grill and in a few mins, Viola!!!

Just like every gatherings we had at Karen’s house, it was fun and filling, and of course for the kids, they were high on sugar, playing/running around like crazy the whole night…

Canada Day long weekend BBQ 2012

We were so graceful that we had a super nice weather over the whole long weekend, perfect for the event that we had been waiting for, Canada Day long weekend BBQ tradition at Cheryl’s house.  Tons of people, tons of food and of course, TONS of fun 😀  Something was totally different this year because in previous years, we had Cheryl, her mom and some other people preparing food but this time, only our master chef Macy prepared the amazing good food.  Of course the outcome of the night was a success as expected, thanks Cheryl, Auntie, Uncle and Macy putting the party together for us 😀

As always, go to my facebook gallery to check out more pictures of the event here http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151070615160211.485245.689775210&type=1&l=40d90a17b5
