We had a barbecue over a open fire at Lake Wahtopanah near Rivers,MB. Six families members enjoyed supper together. Menu was Barbecued Charolais Rib-Eye Steaks raised by a family member, new garden potatoes grown also by a family member along with Manitoba grown mushrooms, broccoli and cauliflower salad, and corn. Dessert was homemade butter tarts. All cooking was done over an open pit fire on a grate—even warmed the delicious garlic bread over the fire.
The barbecue by the lake was spur of the moment we were going to barbecue hamburgers when a family member phoned to see if we wanted to join them at the lake. Heavy rain earlier in the day prevented baling hay when the sun appeared what better idea than a barbecue with friends.
