....... on Saturday we had our first BBQ of the year with our guests Volker and Ulli.
This was also the first time I have sat on the patio this summer .... grrr.

The BBq went well until - right in the middle of me being grilled about the work I do and how bad I was at doing BBQs, when - when I walked to the roaring BBQ to view the gentle cooking of Joans well marinated chicken breasts - when - I found it to be Black as coal on the underside - well - how was I to know ...........

So this was 'black chicken day'. I really did concentrate well on cooking the sausages and kebabs after that.
Champagne helped to settle my nerves - in fact the chicken was nice if the black skin was removed.

We laughed ........
