Celebrating National BBQ week with Tesco NI

This week, the weather hasn’t been the best – however, did you know it’s National BBQ Week? I wasn’t aware either until the lovely folk at Tesco NI sent us a lovely bundle of local produce to throw our own Northern Ireland BBQ. To be honest, though, our BBQ could not have been more Northern Irish because it rained. Which is just typical for N.I isn’t it.

We faced a second conundrum {alongside the typical Northern Irish weather} and that was; we didn’t own a BBQ! The weather over here is so sporadic & unpredictable that we’ve never invested because it would get used once, maybe twice {if we were lucky} each year. So we picked up one of those little disposable BBQ’s and had ourselves an indoor BBQ.

The smoky BBQ pork hot dog sausages were a big hit too. I had never seen these in the store before but I think they will be a recurring request from here on in.

All in all, we had a lovely indoor BBQ during National BBQ Week. The food we had was delicious and there is a real sense of pride in knowing that it was all from local farms around Northern Ireland.
