BBQ Dinner at Home…

By | November 29, 2012

A while ago as the weather was getting finer I knew it was time to have a BBQ gathering. If you’ve been following my bloga while you’d know about my friend and fellow blogger FourMe who had recently beat cancer after a vicious battle. Her 2nd year Cancer-Free Remission anniversary was coming up so it was the perfect opportunity to gather the girls for BBQ dinner at Read more »

Help Needed: Which BBQ Service to Choose?

By | October 20, 2010

 

HELP!

I have been asked to arrange a BBQ for 20 people. Now i am a vegeterian who knows nill about how to BBQ -i BBQ my own paneer cheese and veggies but i doubt the ppl would appreciate that- i must choose a BBQ Service, must be an excellent one, design the menu, and make arrangements for desserts afterwards.

Now after going through Facebook and the Blogsphere i know i have those several choices:

1- Abu Abdulla’s Grills: His food and Arayes are said to be amazing and it’s a no fuss approach to BBQing. But i heard his food is not covered or frozen but i am not sure if thats true or not?

2- Q8 BBQ They have a large variety of marinades and combinatins and they seem to know what they are doing plus you can order online! But again i don’t know about their service or the taste of their food.

3- Munch’s BBQ the most reviewed BBQ service around. I like what i have seen esp. the BBQ pizza. I don’t know how it compares in taste to the other BBQ places though.

4- BBQ @ Home: I like that they come and setup a booth at the dining place but i don’t know about the taste?

5- The Little Oven: Their pictures look good but i never heard anyone reviewing them before so i wouldn’t know the taste?

Have you tried any of the above BBQ services before? Can you recommend any of them? Do you have anymore places that i do not know about? and what desserts do you think complements the BBQ food? Your help is highly and desperately needed… much obliged 😀

BBQ Night! One Week to Go, So much to DO!!!

By | October 9, 2008

Since the weather is extremely nice, surprisingly early for such a nice weather… and since there is now where to go that is new, good, exciting, good food, and you can sit back and relax without hal people yekhezoonich all the time… as if its a national sport or something… and without hal ashkal il ghareeba ilee ma adry min wain te6la3… with the recent trend of PDA to top it off…

Since all of the above, we (i and the girls) decided the best thing to do is to have a nice BBQ at home and pig out… last time we gathered was in Avenues chocolate bar, two days before ramadan…

Insha2 allah it will take next week, Thursday the 16th…!

So anyways, we plan on wearing casual clothes, put the grills outside, if the weather permits we will also open the sliding doors from the pool so we can eat outside while dimming the pool lights and putting on some lanterns… or else we would eat by the dimmed pool side but the grilling is done outside…

Already had a menu written up… all things yummy with vegeterian options for me (i am a vegeterian!)…so the menu theme hat to be one of four options…

1) American BBQ: Buns, Hamburgers, Sausages, the works, French Fries, Potatoe Salads, brownies

2) Lebanese BBQ: Kabab o Kofta o Sheesh 6awooq Homos, Tabolah, Fattoush, Motabbal, Waraq 3nb

3) Italian/European BBQ: Chicken Breast, Steak, Pasta, Mashed Potatoes, Grilled Veggies, Tiramisu

4) Mexican BBQ: Grilled Chicken, Lamb, or Shripm Fajitas, Grilled Veggie Fajitas, Nachos, Stuffed Jalapinos, Tortillas, Tacos, Guacamole, Sour Creme, Pico Di Galo, Some greens, Virgin Margharitas or electric lemonade, Maybe the odd flan for desert?

Madry what to do. Lebanese BBQ seems like going to Mais il Ghanim, nothing wonderful there. American BBQ is like having dinner at Mcdonalds, every body grew up eating “Hamburger o b6aa6 o chicken nuggets” for dinner!!! Steaks can take forever to grill, but then, we would be doing the grilling ourselves while pigging out on the appetizers and having fun…

Maybe i will take the best of each?! or make a little salad bar like the ones we see every where?!?!

I have already decided on one dessert…. but since three of the guest are readers to my blog, i will not share what it is :p

So much to do… so little time. Im glad to have a BBQ though, nothing stirs up life and takes your mind of you troubles like a gathering at your house…

Do you have any ideas?!???!? Love to hear from you!
