Ingredients for a Barbecue

1. Chilled Rum Punch made to a secret recipe


2. A selection of tasty salads...


Vietnamese rice noodle salad


A chilli coleslaw and beetroot and orange salad


3. A couple of summery desserts to finish the meal


Slut red raspberries in chardonnay jelly... these would be made for their name alone whether they tasted divine or not (but they do!) and a stawberry pavlova.


4. And a man to grill some some sausages and kebabs...



... and take all the credit!

  2. Oooh, looks brilliant! We haven't had many barbies this summer. Must get Mr DC out with the fire tools.

  3. What a delicious spread - I'd be there for the slut jelly alone!!

    It's good to know it's not just in our house where it's all the man's hard work and cullinary expertise that makes a successful barbeque ;o)

  8. yum, nothing like a good summer BBQ. I can't persuade myself to like beetroot but I would certainly be prepared to try again seeing your salad Gina.

  9. Gina, that menu is filled with such delicious looking treats...and to be able to enjoy them outdoors, too...fabulous indeed.

    (Your salad combinations have inspired me to be a bit more adventurous in my own salad making. Many thanks!)

    I also want to compliment you on the monoprint tutorial. I am sure that many folks will be getting out the inks, plate, roller and paper. I actually loved the look of the "dry" print even before you added some color. As an old (too hopeful to say "former") printmaker, I always loved the element of surprise. xo
