Happy Father’s Day, Happy Birthday!

Are you getting bored with posts about food and family gatherings yet? I hope not because here’s another one!

June is a month full of celebrations. First Father’s Day and my Gran’s birthday, then my dad & granddad’s birthday. Yes, it’s full of presents and good food.

We had a BBQ yesterday, quite simple to be honest. Some veggies, some meat, some pizza bread – and then I went all out and actually baked a chocolate fudge cake with cherries and orange and chili whipped cream. Can we say YUMM? (Recipe will follow in a seperate post, don’t worry ;))

My family here in Austria is quite small, which basically means that we’re extremely close to my grandparents. We live in the same town and often meet for dinner or lunch. Since we still don’t have a kitchen at the moment, we opted to have a BBQ for the first time this season. Just some simple things, quickly thrown together, and a bit of sunshine made for a lovely spring day :)
