Friday was another of my days off work. This week I have worked a full four days at the hospital! The ‘heat wave’ has continued to bless us with high temperatures, in the mid 20 degrees (although it was a bit too humid by far!)
After the success of last weeks BBQ (these BBQs are costing me a fortune!) another family BBQ is planned for tomorrow!
For last weeks BBQ I had vegetarian Mediterranean sausages swilled down with sparkling rose wine. This week I have got Quorn peppered steaks and to serve with salad and Pearl potatoes, swilled down with Merlot wine :p
Today was also David’s day off and after going to see Man of Steel at the Showcase cinema, (just to listen to Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack!) David did some work on the house and I cooked a Mexican stew (which I saw on the Good Food website!) and substituted the chicken for Quorn chicken, added kidney beans and served with tortillas. Yummy!
Since the UK has been covered with bright, warm sunshine for most of the week. We decided on Friday to have a family BBQ with myself, David, my brother Daniel and mum Heather. We cooked beef burgers and salmon on the grill and precooked Charlotte potatoes and mixed some salad. There was wine flowing and Daniel had music playing on Jade his laptop.
We all had such a good time that we decided to do it all over again on Saturday!
So David and I bought vegi burgers and spicy chicken for the main. Then meringue and strawberries to make a pudding of Strawberry Mess. With the grill smoking we all thoroughly ate like kings and had such a laugh!
