Presents for Papa

Uwe had mentioned to me that he wants to become the "BBQ Master" this year. Yes, it's summer time in Los Angeles once again and it's time for the grilling to commence. So for Father's Day I got him a BBQ apron & mitt, and 2 BBQ cookbooks. One for beer can chicken (Uwe's done this in the oven and it's delicious!), and Bobby Flay's BBQ book (Uwe loves the dishes that Bobby Flay whips up on the Food Network).Astrid trying on Uwe's BBQ mitt.The Fire Chief - with her BBQ apron and mitt.Ready to start grillin'. I also got a book about things to do with kids in southern CA - for future family outings. And I got a "Daddy Loves Me" book for Uwe and Astrid to read together - which you can see they're doing in the photo above.

Books for Uwe:
  1. Grilling For Life - 75 healthier ideas for big flavor from the fire - by Bobby Flay

  2. A Barbecue Bible - beer can chicken and 74 other offbeat recipes for the grill - by Steven Raichlen

  3. Fun and Educational Places to go with Kids in Southern California - by Susan Peterson

  4. Daddy Loves Me - (Cuddle Up & Read Together) - by Karen Moore

(Dinner tonight - beer can chicken grilled over pecan wood chips with a tomato/cucumber salad.)
