With all this lovely weather my twitter feed has been BBQ Bonkers, lots of people firing up the barbie and cooking the hell out of various meat products.
I love BBQ food, we had family BBQ parties when I was little and they were always such happy times. I was brought up on not very adventurous BBQ food, burgers, sausages, chicken etc.
We had a BBQ on Wednesday night and things haven't changed all that much... Sausages, burger, salad... But we mixed it up a little bit by cooking prawns in garlic butter, wrapped in foil, and then a piece of haddock with some herbs, also wrapped in foil.
There was some homemade potato salad too - but I had a few drinkies on Tuesday and came in and ate half the bowl of it, so I didn't have any more on Wednesday....
Yes - that is a processed cheese slice on my burger. Yes, I know, they are vile and hardly allowed to be called cheese, let alone should they grace the top of a decent burger.
But, dare I confess, I like cheese slices.
I like them on burgers. I like them as cheese on toast. I like them in sandwiches... Don't judge me too harshly, everyone has a guilty food like, or two, let's not forget I also love hotdogs....
So, I'll be firing up a BBQ tomorrow evening. I have the girls coming over for BBQ, beers and boy talk.
I plan to do:
Chicken and vegetable kebabs
Homemade Potato Salad
Rice with peas and sweetcorn
Sparkling wine jelly pots
Am I missing anything startlingly obvious that would be a good addition to my BBQ?
