Google Outdoor Dining In Backyard- What Am I Cooking? ~ Fine Dining In Melbourne


If you are planning to arrange a get together at your home then go for arranging it in the backyard this time. Outdoor dining has always been a great fun. Meeting your friends in the garden area in your backyard with variety of food and wines- what all you need for a wonderful get together!

I am saying all this because I experienced this thing recently. My family was planning to have a small get together with their friends. After we decided that we are going to arrange a party the problem was where we will make arrangements to make our guests sit as our dining room is a bit small and cannot accommodate more than 10 persons at a time. So we decided to have it in the backyard this time.

Arrangements were made. A proper outdoor dining ambience was created. My kids were really excited. But the thing I was still confused with is what shall I cook for my guests? After giving it a long thought, finally I decided to prepare four dishes. My dishes were Strawberry Banana Smoothie Ice Pops, Baked Apple Pie Layer Bars, Spiced Pork and Apple Burger with Maple Dijon, Apple Tortellini Salad with traditional drinks.

With my blog I am sharing one of the above recipes with you. Try this at home. I am sure you are going to love it. Let us prepare Baked Apple Pie Layer Bars. They are yummy, healthy and something that kids like the most.
