you are


#42

I need an idea about a summer team building thing btw, £64 a head… preferably in Richmond-Upon-Thames but not a boat on the river…


#43

Barbeques (I refuse to use the contraction) are always a genuinely average experience


#44

sorry £50 a head


#45

What kind of animal gets invited to a BBQ and doesn’t at least chip in a few cans out of their own pocket?


#46

Love a good BBQ. No idea what you moaners are on about. If you can’t manage to have fun with food+beer+sun+music then you’ve got problems.


#47

are these the new espresso martinis?


#48

but there was no beer


#49

Hayfever.


#50

Yeah, I’m in team ‘that’s a bit weird tbh.’


#51

I’ve got to that stage where I find a meal prepped inside but eaten outside at a table with a beer or glass of wine with friends and family on a warm day to be a bit more enjoyable than a BBQ.


#52

MUM! Can I have my tea in the garden?! MUM!!


#53

Didn’t know you were related


#54

Fair enough, I used to suffer with it and nothing is enjoyable when your pockets are stuffed full of tissues and you can’t see anything. File that under ‘problems.’


#55

Feels nice and continental. Sit out on the terrace on a warm summer evening, under a parasol.

Lovely.


#56

Hire a screen in the Odeon and hold a big screen Mario Kart tournament.


#57

One’s more of a summer drink than the other, and Aperol Spritz’s became a ‘thing’ a year or two earlier than espresso martinis, I think.


#58

While everyone’s having a moan I’ll give you the recipe for my new favourite BBBQ side (vegan and well easy)

  • peel some sweet potatoes, bash them through the thickest setting on your mandoline (or pound coin thickness if you’re still living in the stone ages)
  • mix a tin of coconut milk, a bunch of fresh, coarsely chopped parsley, couple of cloves of garlic (crushed), fresh chilli and chilli flakes in a bowl with the sweet potatoes
  • layer the sweet potato in a roasting dish and bung it in the oven for 40-50 minutes

You’re all very welcome

  • Obviously great
  • Me and my friends and my family are all very bad at cooking
