August nights are getting darker little by little, but they are still pretty warm – they are actually just perfect after a very hot day – and making food outdoors is still possible. One never knows when the autumn weather will creep in and when one has to give up making delicious summer foods, let us enjoy as long as we can.

Summer and barbecuing definitely belong together… and so do wasps. Especially the long-lasting hot weather and the withering of flowers makes them very hungry and fierce. The scent of grilled food attracts wasps to the annoyance of those eating outside and at worst there might be dozens of them spinning on the edge of a plate or a drinking glass. They seem to be very fond of grilled meat, just as we people are.
Stew made of pork, potatoes and varying other ingredients is absolutely one of the best summer foods prepared in a Muurikka pan. We have tested f.ex. broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, various vegetable mixes, chili peppers, beans, carrots, asparagus, zucchini along with pork and potatoes and it’s always just as good – no matter what you use.

As I already mentioned in my previous post about grilling, the weather has been a blessing in the sense that it has been possible to enjoy our meals in the shade of a huge maple tree. Although I can not help feeling pity for my garden drying up in spite of all the watering and for the raspberry bushes being full of unripe small berries, which are in danger of withering.

After one night’s sleep

Hot weather is not meant for me at all: I don’t like being in the sun and the heat in turn – whether it’s inside or outside – makes me feel weak and nothing gets done. Using the oven in a 30 degree celsius kitchen, not to mention standing next to it cooking, is something I really wouldn’t bother doing. Continue reading “Barbeque bundles”
