This would be our second annual BBQ and I am liking if this becomes an annual thing with our friends (of course we’d love to be able to host our friends over for a meal / potluck more often).
This time we kept it pretty casual by inviting our friends via our whatsapp group chats (ha!).
On the grill the mister had:
- Veggie and paneer skewers
- Hotdogs (halal and veggie)
- Eggplant “burgers” (with spinach mayo sauce)
- Simple BBQ chicken drumsticks
Plus one of friends brought a deep fryer to make fish and chips.
With our society becoming more and more busy (long hours at the office, kids extra curricular activities etc) and on our screens than #IRL, I think it’s even more important to put the effort towards friendships, in person interactions and events.
Although a pretty huge undertaking, planning and executing a lunch or dinner party is always a goal/to do item on our mental check lists. That said, we definitely weren’t thinking it through much because during all the prep work we were dealing with Miss El’s feeding schedule and skipping the elusive toddler nap (for Miss S). But I am glad we managed to pull it off and enjoyed ourselves in the process.
