With all this lovely weather we have been enjoying, the barbecue has been lit more times than I care to imagine. There’s something about barbecues that seem to bring everyone together, and there’s always plenty of good food and drink around.
We recently took up the challenge from Money Supermarket to see how far we could stretch £50 for a barbecue. After spending £41 on lots of lovely food and drink, we finished off our budget by buying a new tent for 6yo in the garden. We did think about a new paddling pool, but she loves her secret dens, and this has gone down a treat.
We are very lucky to have friendly neighbours, and have been known in the past to pass barbecue food over the fence to each other, and food has been passed over to be cooked on a barbecue if there is one lit. We decided to include our neighbours in this barbecue and shared our stash of goodies around.
I made a selection of salads, we had dips and vegetable sticks.
There was plenty of meat to go around
and ribs were being started off in the oven
we musn’t forget the obligatory wine and beer
We didn’t cook any of the neighbours food this time, but we had fun sharing between the gardens.
We were all royally stuffed by the end of our barbecue. It was a lovely relaxing way to spend time with family and neighbours, thanks Money Supermarket.
