Disposable Barbies at Work!
Summer is the perfect season for backyard barbecues...even if you live in London! Instead of investing a couple hundred quid on a top-of-the-line gas barbecue grill, we picked up disposable BBQ's at Tesco for $2.99 (2 for £5).
Hailing from San Diego, disposable barbies are quite foreign to me, but they certainly did the job! I highly recommend it for anyone planning to host a BBQ for up to twelve people.
We bought three disposable barbecues for Nick's mum's birthday today. We prepared enough food to feed eight people and were able to cook four hamburger patties, three steaks, eight pieces of chicken, and twelve sausages on the barbecue before the flames started to die down.
Oh, and here's a side note about shopping in the UK: Is it just me or do you feel compelled to buy more than what you intended when you see a "buy 3 for £5" deal? Sometimes I'll just need to pick up a carton of juice on my way home from work, but when I see that I can buy 3 for £5, I end up leaving the store with three cartons!!! I recognize that it is a clever marketing scheme, but fall for it every time -- I'm such a sucker for bargains!
