New York cooks at home!

Miss Susan says that

“Kids from Irvington, NY like cooking inside and barbecuing outside!

Barbecue is really popular in New York as soon as the weather gets nicer!  However,

there are some families who barbecue throughout the year!”

Do you enjoy cooking outside? 

Is there any special day in the week  for eating barbecues ?

Does your family barbecue in summer or at any moment of the year?
