bbq


From top left: cucumber miso pickles, cucumber sticks (for the dip), rice salad (with wheat boiled with the rice), onion and cucumber vinegar pickles, coleslaw, corn on the cob, baked eggplant, baba ghanouj, salsa and corn chips, hot dog buns, tsatziki dip and wholemeal bread cubes. Oh, and we also had tandoori chicken skewers, Brazilian sausages, char siu pork skewers, (thanks R!) chicken drumsticks and for dessert a HUGE watermelon, very berry ice cream and a yummy chocolate cake (thanks V!).

I felt a bit bad inviting people over and feeding them all the excess produce but you know- invite a group of city slickers over and they don't even blink at a plate of cucumber dip, cucumber sticks and cucumber pickles on the side to boot. They're too busy exclaiming 'you grew this??' So it's a mutually beneficial arrangement as well as being a lot of fun!

I'm already planning my next BBQ...

That all looks AMAZING and so fresh and yummy! :-) Never feel bad about feeding people and the fact all the food was produced by your hard work is triply impressive!

I am sooo sad I missed this! I'm going to regret not having my work finished sooner for weeks now, thank you. I'm sure a good time was had by all, and next time I'll be sure to be one of the all!

Thank you all for the kind words. I really was feeling a little cheap/ stingy for sourcing everything from the garden but everyone seemed to like it and even took spare veggies home with them so I guess it's no problem, hey?

And we BBQ at the drop of a hat and have a guest room waiting so you're all welcome anytime. Just bring an empty bag for your veggies!
