    Yay the forecast is for nice weather this weekend, so fingers crossed it may be time for the first BBQ of 2010
    (just got to keep it quiet in case the rain clouds find out, sshhhh.... :badmood:)

    So the plan is to have an EE day with:
    Home made xtra lean beef burgers and a wholemeal bun (Hex B)
    Tesco Light choices sausages (1 syn each)
    Chicken drumsticks marinated in either tikka or SF BBQ sauce
    Rice salad
    Coleslaw made with Hellmans xtra light
    New potatoes...
    Plus a big jug of refreshing vodka with lime and soda and lots of fruit and ice - yummy

    Be kind to your neighbours and make sure that your barbeque equipment is clean before you start.

    I dread the warmer weekends because I have to close all the windows in my flat because of the dreadful smell from barbeques around here. If I don't, the whole place smells of rancid fat and smoke.

    I hate barbeques!!!!!!

    Well indeed it was BBQ whether - spent all afternoon in the garden.
    Had homemade burgers (xtra lean beef mince, cumin, paprika, chilli flakes and some egg to bind) with a crusty wholemeal roll.
    Also had Tesco light choices cumberland (1syn each) and some chicken drumsticks marinated in yoghurt, garlic, lemon juice, chopped chilli and mint.
    All served with some salad, Batchelors mexican rice and some warm new potatoes.
    Trouble is ended up drinking more that a couple of vodkas!!

    We're having a barbecue on Wednesday for my Sister's birthday.... BBQ halloumi :drool: Might even treat myself to some chicken if I'm feeling naughty!

    I can vouch for the Sainsbury's meat free burgers! The Tesco one's are very 'meaty' and yummy too :flirt2:

    We had one yday, yum! I stuck to quorn burgers and salad, cuz I don't eat burgers and sausages anyway.
    Personally I love the smell of the bbq, and it was smelling someone elses that tempted us to get out our own!

    Had BBQ last night. I made the lemon mousse terrine from the 2010 calender for pud, & OMG it was scrummy! Even OH, whose usual comments are "I can taste the artificial sweetner" (yak yak yak etc), said it was really good. Very light, but I have to say I couldnt eat more than 1 slice. It was supposed to feed 4, but I would have said 6 as the slices were huge. Only 2 syns the whole thing...!
