So, it’s spring time in Holland and there are a few things I really love about spring time. 2 Of the favorites of those things are Lamb and Asparagus! Combine that with my love of the grill and we have the basics for a great recipe for Lamb. I wanted to do this belgian style, which means living the good life! Beer and Mustard… Lovely.
To start with the marinade, I mixed up the following ingredients.
- 1/4 cup of mustard (with seeds)
- 1/2 cup of chopped onion
- 2 cloves of garlic, very well chopped
- 2 tablespoons of freshly cut rosemary (although I used the dried version)
- 1 cup of belgian wheatbeer (I used La Trappe, as you can see in the picture below)
- 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons of Extra Vergine Olive Oil

Lazy monday, kings day in the Netherlands, and the weather is goohood! Again! Even though all the weather guys and dolls told us otherwise.
I have a little ham lying around that’s just begging me to be eaten today. Who am I to disappoint such a nice little ham?
After careful consideration of the ham’s feelings, I kind of pushed him to go into a nice honey glaze on the OTP using the indirect grilling method. He agreed, and so it shall be done.

I was planning on doing some ribs, this weekend, since we celebrate the kings day on monday and the weather was good. This relaxes me a lot, and I started out being in anticipation all weekend. Nice! Should do them more often, I guess.
To start out with the ribs, I needed some BBQ sauce first, and the true master of BBQ, Steven Raichlen, had a great recipe in one of his books, called Kansas Style BBQ ribs, with some great accompanying sauce.
How to make that sauce is described below, including some great pics.

This sylvester eve 2014, we had a good meal, and a friend of mine made brisket. To accompany that, I decided that it was time to do some baked beans again. I love them, but I don’t make them quite often enough.
So, to start, I had to make sure that we had the ingredients. I decided to go with a serving for 12. If there are leftovers, I put them in the freezer. The choice for the baked beans was quite meaty, which I will not do again next time, but ok. It was very tasteful, nevertheless.

This weekend, we had chicken. I love chicken, my wife loves chicken, the kids love chicken. Who doesn’t love chicken? I’ve searched the net for a decent way to cook some legs and thighs, since I didn’t want to do it the ‘old fashioned’ way, just grilling it of on the Q.
I’ve found a wonderful recipe from Jamie, which I really loved, and since I (almost) had all the ingredients in house, I decided to give it a go.
