Yesterday evening my father cooked on the BBQ rather than making a roast dinner. I was more than happy as I love BBQs and the weather was gorgeous last night. We were originally going to have a roast lamb dinner with all the trimmings, but my father sliced the joint of lamb and cooked it on the BBQ. The lamb was so delicious and juicy, and cooked just right.
While my father cooks the food on the BBQ, I usually prepare the salad. I boiled some new potatoes and green beans, and added a little bit of butter when I served them. The taste of melted butter on new potatoes is just divine, like melted butter on a jacket potato. I also prepared some vegetable skewers which were cooked on the BBQ. The skewers consisted of courgette, mushroom, yellow pepper and halloumi. I sprinkled some mixed herbs on top of the skewers before they were placed on the BBQ.
I couldn’t wait to try the vegetable skewers- I like halloumi and hadn’t tried it grilled on the BBQ before, so I was keen to see how it tasted. The vegetables tasted really nice, and the halloumi was very tasty too.
Just before the BBQ prep started, I noticed a small bee on the floor outside of my house. It was very docile and didn’t move when I stood very close to it. I’ve seen quite a few videos on social media recently of what you should do if you see a bee in this condition. I made up some sugar water and placed a teaspoon of it on the floor next to the bee. I had to softly nudge the bee with the spoon as it was very weak and didn’t seem to notice the sugar water at first, but with a little bit of persuasion, it started helping itself to some much needed nutrition.
Normally I wouldn’t dare go near a bee, as I’m not a fan of creatures that can sting you (especially wasps), but this bee was harmless and I wanted to offer my help for a much needed insect which sustains our ecosystem.
Happy reading and blogging!
