I love wintertime. For some people, it sucks getting out of home covered by layers of clothes and stand the cold, the rain and even the snow. Me, on the other hand, I love it.
I found out about Simply Slow totally randomly. They are a community that creates small gatherings once a month and -lucky me- they were doing a Winter Barbeque that same weekend! Ok, I had roasted potatoes in a fireplace before and grilled marshmallows at a bbq one summer... but a winter barbecue? I had to try that.
The venue was a barn in the outskirts of Amsterdam where we learnt how to make bread (or at least, some of us 'tried') and had some wonderful food surrounded by cows and hay bales. We warmed up with some glühwein and soup and continued the feast with delicious grilled sausages. To end up, nothing better than hot chocolate, cookies and butter cake, which gave us strength to bike all the way back to Amsterdam in the middle of the dark.
What a perfect Sunday afternoon! You can see some more -and probably better- photos here.
