Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? Nothing new for me here, but I am hoping that as we approach the end of the month that a few wins start to trickle in. We have been enjoying sampling all the Gourmet Burger Kitchen relishes that I won this week – they are a lovely accompaniment to sausages, burgers and salads – a very tasty win! Looking forward to the Spanish sauces that I won from Holland & Barrett turning up too!
So here we are at another Bank Holiday three-day weekend, not sure where the year is going! This week is also half term for us, so we have the children home as well as trying to continue to work, do housework and enjoy some family time. If you have little ones at home do you find it difficult to keep all the balls in the air during school holidays? Whether you are out to work, work from home or a stay at home parent it can be very tricky to try and keep juggling everything, and still manage to leave some time for comping too!
At least the weather has been pretty good for a change this Bank Holiday weekend. We are away on the mainland visiting relatives with the children, so comping has rather gone by the wayside so far this week. When the weather gets more pleasant do you like to get outside in the garden, maybe for BBQs or parties? If so did you know that it is officially National BBQ Week this week – 25 – 31st May 2015! What a perfect excuse to get some friends and family over to enjoy the fresh air, some good food and a good chat!

I make my burgers from scratch - I mix the meat with herbs/spices, a small amount of marinade (too much will make them very wet), leave in the fridge for a few hours, remove and mix with breadcrumbs and shape into burgers.
I put out a selection of salad, dressings, buns, etc., so that people can choose what they want.
My favourite bbq food is salmon, cooked in foil with lemon thyme. This leaves a lemony flavour throughout the salmon.
