Barbecue night.

Barbecue night.

We had friends round for a barbie last night, so we made the long, long trip into the central fish market to make sure everything was as fresh as possible. I took this photo in the lull before everyone arrived. Minutes later, the clouds rolled over, the thunder crashed, and we ended up eating off the kitchen table. Still tasted good, though!

It all looks totally yummy!

It was, Waddy, but things never taste the same cooked under the grill instead of on the barbecue. :o(

Looks absolutely scrummy . . . prawns, salmon and scallops? My faves: sorry about the rain tho' :((

24 Jun, 2012

 

No, Not scallops, Sheila - I'm very allergic to them. It's a fish called Pangasio. Very meaty, very tasty. No, seriously, we needed the rain - there just wasn't enough of it. Sorry!

That's the spirit.. :) Love the look of that platter, never heard of Pangasio.......I wonder if we call it something different?

Catfish! (not nearly so exotic sounding)

Yeah thanks for that Gattina, but you should'nt of gone to all that trouble, I only popped over for a coffee, Lol.

Do a cultlery count before Willi leaves Gatt. ;))

We've just had thunder lightning and hailstones in Northumberland! When I visit the Italian Lakes it always seems to put on spectacular thunder and lightning shows at night. I love it!

Thanks Pimp!!!
I just put 5 cats in my bag, Lol.

24 Jun, 2012

 

Oh & a Porcupine Gattina gave me to give to you! Lol

24 Jun, 2012

 

Pms...Lol haha.

LOL Willi!!!! :)))

I wondered where all the blinking wildlife had got to!
One of the cats managed to get shut into the fridge tonight with a piece of grilled chicken. Why didn't you take that one, Willi? You're welcome to the cutlery, by the way - it's only Ikea!
Julie, I bet you tend to visit the Italian lakes in August - it ALWAYS thunders and lightnings then! We drive up there quite often (it's about 2 and a half hours away) but out of season. September's alway a lovely time, and not too many tourists!

25 Jun, 2012

 

I've been twice - once in September and once in May (having no kids I have the luxury of travelling outside the peak season :-D)

25 Jun, 2012

 

Isn't that the best time Julie! We always try to make it for a few nights round about the first or second week in September: we don't always get decent weather, but it tends to be pretty good. If you are planning any more trips, let me know, and we'll have a lake-side rendezvous!

Nothing wrong with abit of Ikea Gattina.
Sorry about the cat in the fridge, I must of shut it in while I was snatching a few, Lol.

26 Jun, 2012

 

I shall send you the vet's bill for frost bite treatment, Willi, and mine for the all the food he got through! (the cat, not the vet, that is!)

27 Jun, 2012

 

Ha Ha, With the weather you've been having I bet he was glad of the cooling down, Lol.

27 Jun, 2012

 

He has (the cat, not the vet) found a little place of his own next to the table leg on the landing, where he catches the breeze that wafts between the balcony window and the bedroom and bathroom windows. I was standing nearby yesterday, and realised there would always be this flow of lovely cool air, so he's not as daft as we thought. It was just the food in the fridge, I guess. He can hear the fridge door open across three fields, two big hedges, the courtyard and two flights of steps!

27 Jun, 2012

 

Ha Ha, Thats why I left that one there Gattina, He was so happy. The 5 I brought home, now have knitted jackets & wellies, for the british climate, Lol.

27 Jun, 2012

 

Yeah, I know - I got a desperate text message from them last night pleading with me to mount a rescue bid!

27 Jun, 2012

 

If cats had thumbs eh, I love that advert, Lol.

27 Jun, 2012

 

One of my all-time favourites....... I really must get a life! Wouldn't make me drink Cravendale, though!
