So I’m sure you’re all simply dying to know…. what did we spend our £50 on? Well, much as I’d have loved to go properly nautical on you and make pretty decorations out of driftwood etc… our stomachs simply wouldn’t let us. So while we made the most of our beautiful natural coastal surroundings (and maybe threw in a well placed pebble or two), the majority of our budget was spent on delicious food for us all.
But isn’t that what a BBQ is all about?
Seeing as how we were in a coastal village in Suffolk, it seemed criminal not to make the most of all the gorgeous local seafood on offer. Therefore, this wasn’t your standard ‘bangers and burgers’ BBQ, oh no. After skimming through a BBQ cookbook that my brother and I had purchased for my dad for Father’s Day many moons ago, we settled on a few slightly more unusual dishes, using mainly the local produce. But I’ll let the photos do most of the talking….
I know this is the bit most of you have been waiting for. We mustn’t forget desserts. I apologise for the fact that it all looks rather healthy but I promise you, not only did I make a massive Eton Mess as well, but all that fruit got smothered in melted chocolate. So you see, it’s not all bad.
There is nothing better than good food, family and sunshine (and just a smidge of alcohol!) so thank you MoneySupermarket for this great challenge!!!
