1st dinner party.



The boys held their first ever dinner party yesterday, and what a dinner party is was; we even had personalised place names (with minor spelling mistake).

The BBQ was lit, the fire pit was lit, 'artisan' crisps were handed around to all present; it started well, and continued that way.

We ate BBQ'd strips of belly pork, giant 'luxury' knacki sausages, and inch-thick beefburgers, all served with a potato salad, and tomatoes. Nothing was burned, all was perfectly cooked. Everything was delicious

For dessert we ate strawberry tart, and the evening was rounded off with roasted marshmallows over the fire pit.

For a first go at entertaining, the boys did a fabulous job. They are now thinking of opening a chain of  Dangerous Fun Resterants;..... I think they'll do well.

  16. I love men who have learned to cook, and enjoy sharing their creations with others. Half the pleasure is the planning...wonder how many hours were spent in theirs. Poor Bok...the barbecue probably drove him crazy....but his boys can do no wrong I imagine.
