During the hot weather recently we decided it would be a great idea to have a BBQ for our dinner one evening. A toddler and hot surfaces, what could possibly go wrong?!
Actually it wasn’t too bad. We had a disposable BBQ from Sainsbury’s which I lit and then we all went back inside while the flames died down. When I went back outside to do the rest of the cooking, T decided that he had to play with me all the time and Daddy wouldn’t do! But S did a sterling job at distracting him by playing football while I cooked our food. Then we sat in the evening sunshine and enjoyed our vegetarian feast of Quorn burgers and sausages with pepper and halloumi kebabs.
T soon decided that his food wasn’t nearly as tasty as Daddy’s food (which was exactly the same!) so had to have S’ burger instead of his own.
Then we had strawberries with ice cream which T couldn’t get enough of!
After dinner we played with T in the garden, he was giggling and running round, loving the warm sunshine. It was one of those long evenings that epitomize summer, full of sunshine, giggles and good food.
