A Teeny, Tiny BBQ

The first one of the year! BBQ that is...

The general plan for today was that we were going to go to Lyme, have lunch, play crazy golf and generally do the tourist thing.  But the best laid plans and all that - we didn't quite make it. 

Instead we wandered down to the co op and bought a mini BBQ and some burgers, ribs, salad etc and then wandered back home again, via the cafĂ© to have a quick cuppa with a friend.  I also bought the makings for a roast dinner just in case the weather changed - see how good at planning I am!!! ;)

Jack lit the BBQ (I can't believe how small it was!) and I rushed around like a mental old hag trying to cover up all the rabbits as the smoke poured from the little bitty box!


After trying to poison us all by BBQing ribs that were supposed to be defrosted first, I left Jack to sort out all things BBQ whilst I pottered around to make salads etc.  There's a reason why men BBQ, woman are too darned stressed out, trying to keep everything running smoothly, to think straight!

The kids both seemed to enjoy the food and the cat even tried to get in on a little meaty action!  Not overtly of course, stealth is more her style!

Note how she lays lazily in the shed, and then when you're not expecting it she's almost at your food!


Not that she stands much chance of getting grub away from these two!  Well, they *are* growing lads!

You know I cannot yet imagine Rye being a "big" boy, or not being able to pull him on my lap for cuddles. lol.

How lucky are you in having two lovely sons to BBQ for you :) Sadly I guess that will be one of the last for this year as the days draw cooler...
