Yes, you read that correctly – it
now feels like summer. The last few days here have been pretty good, and our
28’ day today was amazing once we got away from our desks – sunshine, with a
bit of a breeze – so we decided to get out our BBQ for the first time this year
and fire it up.
As a totally unexpected bonus, my
box of New Zealand beer arrived which I immediately opened & popped a few
in the freezer to chill down whilst prepping our dinner. I can’t tell you how
excited I was – a taste of Summer, on a hot Summers day!
Everything fell into place – our
groceries came bang on time – 7.03 for their delivery slot of 7pm-9pm (well
played grocery company – they must heard about our plans!) so hubby picked up
charcoal whilst I put it away (aaah, domestic bliss). We pulled out a couple of
sirloin steaks out & marinated them with Garlic and Worcestershire Sauce,
accompanied by all the vege we fancied – Portobello Mushrooms, Sweet & Red
Peppers, Courgettes and Cherry Tomatoes drizzled with a touch of Olive Oil.
Oh, me, oh my.
We sat outside in the sunshine,
eating, drinking, catching up. It was lovely – my favourite day this summer so
far. We were even joined by the wee beast, though I’m not sure if if was our
company that she was there for, so much as the juicy steak she could smell.
We even planned to cook way too
much so we would vege in our salads tomorrow – yum!
We always laugh about BBQ – it’s
almost perfect food; slightly charred, healthy, great accompaniment to a beer
or two, hubby gets to place with fire, and there is so little cleaning up. We
always send a little laughing thanks to the caveman who first discovered that
burning your meat improves the flavour.
Todays workout: Rest day.
Are you getting that summer feeling yet?
