I’ve been wanting to host a barbecue for awhile now and also really wanted to do something for the 4th of July. As we are now going to be in Budapest for the actual holiday, we decided to celebrate a little early with some friends. We were lucky to have beautiful weather so we could all sit outside in the yard and eat a very traditional American feast of hotdogs and hamburgers along with all the sides!
