Anytime I pass by a street vendor selling shishkabob I think of my dad's barbecues. As the weather gets warmer outcomes his grill. Armenian barbecues consist of meat and vegetables. Such as pork chops, steaks, chicken, peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes. I think its pretty healthy. No hotdogs, burgers, or macaroni salad. Which I love but am used to my dad's version of a BBQ. He usually marinates the meat the night before in Adobo. He enjoys the flavor. Niel enjoys it too. We all do.

Food I grew up with still my favorite. Foods outside of my culture Indian and Japanese:) But I pretty much like all different types of foods. Pretty easy to please when it comes to my belly.

Ohhh, I'd *love* to try Armenian BBQ, but I do think that I'd miss the macaroni salad! hehe :) Do you have potato salad? :) I'm thinking about grilling shish-kebabs [spelling?] when Jeff's parents come visit at the end of this month.

Hey Lisanne. Armenian BBQ is pretty similar to most Mediterranean and Middle Easter BBQ's so if you go any restaurant like that you would experience it. Once we have a house and can BBQ of course we would love for you, Jeff and the babies to come. We can serve both kinds so you won't miss out on the potato or macaroni salads. Nice to give people options:)
My mom makes potato salad but is very different than the American kind. We only eat it with grilled fish. She also serves the salad sometimes warm. She adds paprika, onion and dill to hers. Mmmmm!!! Have a good weekend.
