I have commented recently that good friends are hard to find. That sometimes when you have things go on in your life those are the circumstances that you realize who your true friends are. So it’s vital you nurture those friendships as often as possible. Friendship is a two way street after all. So given that I have been thinking about that recently, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you some great Summer ideas. That involve friends and some good food suggestions.
A big summer BBQ
Now that the summer is here we can enjoy some great weather. With that means, we can head outside as much as we can enjoy a few drinks and some BBQ food. You can’t beat having a gathering with your closest and enjoying some burgers. But there are lots of other things you can cook on the BBQ. If you have the time, you can slow roast ribs and steaks and even consider meat kebabs and BBQ some vegetables. Alongside it serve up some salads and garnishes, and you are good to go. Hanging out with good friends in the garden is quite a relaxing environment to create.
A feast around the table
Sundays are always a great day to get your nearest and dearest round and enjoy some great food around the table. It’s the last relaxing day before the new week starts. So it’s a great time to reflect with your friends on what you have been up to and plans. A great serving suggestion would be to serve up a joint of meat and lots of things to go with it. A fabulous suggestion would be something like a deep fried turkey. Crispy skin on the outside and succulent meat on the inside. You can get a turkey fryer quite easily online. Not many people will have tried it before so it could become a firm favorite amongst your guests.
A low key buffet in front of the TV
Whether you are into the latest season of Game of Thrones, or you all like to hang out and watch a game, then a buffet option is very low key and informal. You can do anything you like. You may want to serve up sandwiches or something hot to warm up on a cool evening. Or allow people to bring with them a tray of food and let everyone dig in.
Cook a course each and enjoy it as someone’s house
Finally, a real fun idea for spending an evening with friends is to each cook a course for a meal. One of you may tackle an entre while someone else may create the main event. You could decide on a theme or just cook up whatever you fancy. It’s a great talking point throughout the evening and allows each of you to share the workload.
It’s so important to keep those good friendships alive, so I hope this has inspired you to get something booked in with them soon.
