My big food weekends!

Hubby's chilli punch!

Hubby's chilli punch!

Summertime in my burnt orange world was just excellent when it came to food, events and parties. This summer saw me throwing a barbecue in the rain, catering with my sister for her 60 strong party in my back yard and providing goat kebabs for a dear friend’s baby shower.

I used to think bbq’s were easy enough for the man to take over the kitchen, but it did not quite work that way. I realised that they can be hard work… at least the way I went about them. So anyway, my bbq menu consisted of meat, lots of meat, salad and a fruity punch made by none other than one lovely gentleman I know! He made a fruity punch with a dash of something alcoholic and red-hot chilli peppers… it was divine! Husbands are full of surprises!

A lot of what I did make however was inspired by none other than the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten.

My menu featured her beef sliders

As I am well and truly no bbq expert, I will leave the bbq recipes and meat marinades up to the true bbq heroes.
