The theme for this month was Barbecue (aka BBQ) and everything had to be cooked on the barbie. Laura hosted, and provided the bbq on the 16th January. Laura, Andrew and Franca provided the dishes and drinks, and we dined outside in the warm summer air.



Franca made some excellent chicken skewers with satay sauce, and also two great cocktails – perfect for a barbecue.

In addition, Andrew provided some do-it-yourself Korean beef bulgogi.



For mains, Laura cooked us finger-licking pork ribs, lamb koftas, and made an asian salad and an eggplant and haloumi salad.

Andrew also barbecued some bacon-wrapped corn on the cob to go with mains.


To finish up, Franca impressed us with her dishes of fragrant polenta slices with grilled stone-fruit.
