June’s Family Foodies event NOW OPEN!

June 2, 2014

Family Foodies June 2014Welcome to glorious June folks and welcome to Summer, whoopidy whoop whoop! I simply adore this time of the year and the giddy prospect of an entire heady summer lying before us, all there for the wonderous greedy taking. How exactly we got here so quickly this year I’ve no idea, but I’m ever so pleased we did. And with the warmer weather and longer evenings naturally comes the potential for outdoor eating.

Whether it’s an al fresco lunch in the garden, sundowner nibbles on holiday, a barbecue party, a picnic at the beach or late night camp fire naughties, food always tastes so much better outdoors. And children never fail to love the fun and novelty of dining outside either, you can honestly give my two their ordinary sandwiches in the garden or a few dips and sticks at the park and they’re made up. But suggest a barbecue or a wee garden party with their friends and they’re positively ecstatic.

So to celebrate the start of summer we’ve gone with the theme of Barbecues, Picnics and Outdoor Eating and I’m already super excited to see what outdoor delicacies you clever lot come up with. Go on, indulge me, inspire me, feed me!

The closing date for entries this month is 29th June 2014.

    What a fabulous theme! Even though I’m (mostly) veggie, I do LOVE a barbecue. Will certainly be contributing a recipe or two, and look forward to seeing everyone else’s ideas. YUM 🙂

    Hi Louisa, hope it is okay to link up a frozen dessert for this month’s outdoor theme. If it is kept in a coolbox it would be perfect for a picnic, and certainly great for outdoor eating in the garden. Not to be tossed onto the barbie!
