German Barbecue

Mad napkin folding skills courtesy of yours truly. 
The view from the terrace of Steven's parent's home. Isn't it gorgeous!

Meat! Glorious meat. 

Thursday was a national holiday here in Germany, which means we were able to spend the day with Steven's family at their home in the countryside. I went on a long run in the morning, and I have to say nothing beats running there. Meadows, fields full of nothing but bright yellow flowers, forests - I even saw a mama and baby deer! In the evening we had a family barbecue out on the back porch - steak, bratwurst, roasted vegetables, and you can't forget the bacon-on-a-stick. Gosh, have I mentioned lately HOW MUCH I LOVE FOOD?!? Spending time with family was great and everything BUT THE FOOD WAS SO GOOD.

Also, this is what Steven does when he's cold:


That is all.
