The sun comes out and the BBQ addiction begins! Money Supermarket got in contact asking if I would like to take part in The Charcoal Challenge, a challenge to have the best BBQ possible with a budget of £50! We took the opportunity to have the BBQ on my cousins 5th birthday, it was great as it meant my family (8 of us) all got together to celebrate, spend time in the sun and enjoy lots of yummy food. Being pretty clueless about cooking I let my Uncle do the shopping and spend the majority of the money on a lot of food for us all, I didn't realise how much you could get, especially when buying meat on offer. We had enough left in the budget to get a couple of birthday banners and balloons too for the birthday girl! We had every BBQ food possible (although I really just like the meat and a little bit of pasta) burgers, sausages, chicken, lamb chops, kebabs, corn on the cob, potatoes and a few cold bits like salad. It was so good my mouth is watering thinking about it. I think £50 is more than enough to hold a brilliant BBQ, the only thing I didn't remember to budget for was drinks but I think we did really well to feed us all on £50 and have a little bit left over for Bertie to enjoy!
Do you love a BBQ?
