I've done this eight times already? Time flies...apparently I'm having more fun than I thought. :)
Linking up with Kati and Kate to bring you The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of my weekend!
I was able to go to the Stern German's family reunion... yeah, I guess that's good. I haven't been to it in years since I am usually cooking for about 100 people at a camp when they have this reunion. For my contribution to the evening I made a macaroni salad and...I made sangria!
|The wonderful ingredients|

The Stern German cooked the main meal...
in a garbage can.
Well, in two garbage cans. (There were over 50 people there!) We call it a Polish Luau. Should probably be called a Redneck Luau. You know you're a redneck if you cook your grub in a garbage can...
There are beer cans in the bottom of the garbage can... (definitely a Redneck Luau... they used the cheapest beer out there!) then a grate... then bags of veggies (potatoes, carrots, corn, etc,) and bags of cased meats (hot dogs, bratwurst, ring bologna, kielbasa, etc.).
Here's a picture of the cook... He looks a little too happy...
Then the garbage can sits over an open fire for an hour and a half...
Then you dump it out and eat. It's really good food!
The Stern German has a brother.... that looks a lot like him....but, thankfully, I think my German is a little less crazy... look at that, he doesn't even look stern. Wow, that's two pictures in one night of a Less-Than-Stern German... The world is probably coming to an end.
|Maybe the Stern German's brother forgot his meds...|
This boy thought he was Batman... Guess what? He's really not Batman. He is the Stern German's first cousin once removed... It might have been cute if he was seven... but I think he was 17. You can choose your friends, but not your relatives.... but, really.
I told the Angsty Teen that she cannot marry this boy... and not just because they are second cousins.
Tried this for the first time. Ugly, ugly, ugly. Loved it more than the sangria... well, maybe not... but it was absolutely delicious. It isn't gluten free... but if that doesn't matter to you, you might wanna grab one of these, pour it over ice, and give it a try.
