Burnt sausages & smoke

With the clocks changing and British Summertime now officially with us, the weather obliged us too. We have just had the most wonderful weather for the time of year - really hot and sunny, particularly yesterday Sunday. Needless to say that meant a BBQ in the garden and firing up the chimnea for the first time this season









and although in bbq terms the chimnea may be small, 
I can assure you it does work well

if a little smokey to start with!...

in fact I thought we were going to have Smoked Sausages 
rather than BBQ'd  !!




but my worries were put aside

when we had


Burnt ones instead....





which for some reason is always how they turn out!

just as well

as that is just how we like them -

they were delicious.

  4. I had forgotten how much I miss this weather. I think it had given everyone a little lift.

    I thought everyone liked burnt sausages? I know when cooking them at home I have requests to blacken them a little. You could always put any left over in a pot with tomatoes and onions for dinner today. :)
