Transforming Your Leftovers: Roast Dinner, Edition Two

It would be rude of us if we didn't start by shouting out to all the dads, step-dads, father figures and mums who play the dad role as well (and other category that we may have missed!!) We have had a slight change of plan in regards to tonight's post, we do have all the… Continue reading Transforming Your Leftovers: Roast Dinner, Edition Two


Leftovers Slow Cooker Beef Stew

As explained in the main post we did a leftovers beef stew even though we had no leftover beef and we had no leftover stew. What we did have leftover however is gravy which we somehow looked at and thought hmmm that would make a good beef stew. The beef stew was slowly cooked in… Continue reading Leftovers Slow Cooker Beef Stew

BBQ Recipes: Mains

Whilst we've gone for that title in the interest of continuity, we have a title for this post that we much prefer; so today's post is also known as: (drum roll please) BBQ Recipes: (standard!!) we forgot to take pictures of our chicken kebabs and our hoping our families won't notice that there is no… Continue reading BBQ Recipes: Mains

BBQ Mains: Chilli Drumsticks

I think it would be safe to say that we were both impressed with the chilli sauce that we created for these drumsticks. We also understand that you can quite easily pick up chilli sauce, but when you can make a sauce this quickly and simply it's just got to done! There is the added… Continue reading BBQ Mains: Chilli Drumsticks

BBQ Mains: Honey and Garlic Drumsticks

BBQ Salads: Potato Salad

Potato salad is an absolute must, not only for barbecues but as a side for a main meal and also as part of a buffet for a party. As we aim to keep things simple with our recipes, this potato salad consists of three ingredients and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. It could not… Continue reading BBQ Salads: Potato Salad

BBQ Recipes: Coleslaw

You would think that coleslaw is a pretty uncontroversial salad but of course in the Aargan household, pretty much anything can become controversial! I had an idea of how to do the coleslaw and whilst Meg disagreed I went with it (the matter wasn't helped when my brother sided with Meg later on!) I'll show… Continue reading BBQ Recipes: Coleslaw

BBQ Salads: Tomato, Mozzarella and Spinach Salad

With a BBQ you've got to have a salad but most of the time its's your big standard, iceberg lettuce, cucumber, tomato and pepper. So we'd thought we would go a little bit more on the posh side. We only used three ingredients but by making it look pretty you can get away with using… Continue reading BBQ Salads: Tomato, Mozzarella and Spinach Salad

Bacon and Mozzarella Potato Skins

Barbecue season is so close now that we can practically smell it but until then we would like to present to you bacon and mozzarella potato skins. I will add that by we I mean me and by me I mean the one who is going to have to go shopping before Meg finishes work… Continue reading Bacon and Mozzarella Potato Skins
