I told you yesterday that we were going to spend the day in the nearby park, as the weather was really nice and sunny. We actually ended up doing it, and I wanted to tell you a little bit about our veggie barbecue in the park. Our local park is the biggest in Copenhagen, and it's permitted to barbecue there. Most tables even have a metal griddle in the middle, which is handy for single-use barbecues. I really like the park, as it has different features: flower garden, playgrounds, football fields, a lake with loads of water birds. I hope you enjoy my photos from the place.
We bought this biodegradable and sustainable single-use grill, CasusGrill, and I was so curious to try it out. I quote from the CasusGrill website: “CasusGrill is made from cardboard lined with lava stone that both retains heat and reduces the risk of burns. The grill rack is made from bamboo.”
The grill was easy to assemble and to use, and it worked perfectly for our little vegetable barbecue. I can only recommend it, if you need to use a disposable grill. I ruined the ecological theme a bit by using foil for the potatoes and onions, and also cardboard plates, but better than nothing I guess. Those plastic wineglasses, by the way, I have used many times already after we got them at an event.
We barbecued veggie sausages, grill cheese, onions and pre-boiled new potatoes. On the side we had cherry tomatoes, fresh peas in pods and strawberries. We even had a couple of beers, ciders and a little bit of rosé wine with us.
It was a nice little picnic, even though our table was most of the time in the direct sun. Otherwise I was happy with the table we found in the busy park, as it was kind of a quiet corner next to trees. Next time I will bring my chess figures, if we can secure the same spot.
This morning started with heavy thunderstorm that is still continuing, or at least it's still raining. I'm glad that the plants got some water. It should clear up for later, but I'm not sure, if we can do as much outdoorsy stuff today. I would like to go for a walk at some point.
What about you, how has your weekend been? Is it hot where you are?
