This past weekend we had the pleasure of spending some quality time visiting dear friends in the Southern Maryland area. Beside enjoying the company of our friends which was obviously the main purpose of this trip, you know us well by now so it had to involve some amazing home cooked food and some nice drinks to taste.
The pleasant and summery weather has been the perfect excuse to get the charcoal grill on fire! and prepare an amazing and flavor-packed mix of deliciousness including Angus Prime Beef Burgers, Organic Beef Hot Dogs and Farm-Raised Pork Chops all perfectly and masterly seasoned with a home blend of traditional spices including Adobo, Sea Salt and Black Pepper and some fresh herbs like the house-grown Rosemary, and a dash of extra virgin Olive Oil. All this goodness served with few home-made outstanding side dishes, like Potato Salad, Cole Slaw , Pickles and Guacamole.
We finished this outstanding barbecue on a sweet note, with a slice of Boston Cream Cake and a glass of Rioja Vega from Spain an interesting discovery of this brilliant red with a complex array of aromas on the nose, with notes of red fruits and liquorice and subtle hints of toast, spices and cinnamon. The perfect marriage to those juicy and tender cuts of meat.
We also enjoyed some beers Red Stripe from Jamaica and some Presidente Cerveza from the Dominican Republic.
It is not the first time we have visited this area of the US, below you’ll see some pictures we took during the spring of few years ago, in fact in certain months of the year this area of Maryland is a to-go-to spot for seafood lovers expecially Oysters and Crabs which are traditionally fished in the Chesapeake Bay area.
Hope you’ll have the opportunity to visit this part of the US and discovery what this area has to offer, we enjoyed every minute of it and we have to thank our “Amici” for that… ( you know who you are!)
