We had a great BBQ lunch with friends more than a week ago. It was nothing fancy – actually we decided on barbies because there’s not much fuss on the preparations. We bought several kilos of beef, pork, shrimps, and hotdogs that we forgot to serve for the kids. Add to these, I made a creamy carbonara and veggie salad which were all done on Saturday morning. My husband also took care of the dessert – his signature chocolate refrigerator cake prepared two nights prior lunch. My PELUKA sisters also brought in some dishes – and my, oh, my! It was a buuuuurrrp-fest to the max!
We had a slow but enjoyable lunch. We definitely had a pig-out afternoon! With all the food and drinks we consumed – we, ladies in the house – all groaned about another unsuccessful dieting – and couldn’t help but joke about running to the nearest drugstore after lunch to get ourselves fat burner pills and the best fat burner supplements we could find. On the other side of the room, the men were chattering away with their choice of drinks in hand while the kids busied themselves playing the Wii, Jenga, or taking turns to ride our stationary bike.
It was a fun, fun albeit the guests had to endure the last two hours of the afternoon without fan or anything because of the power cut. Kaenez. But I am happy that my PELUKA sisters and their families were able to make it. Hope there will be a next time.
