Things you will never understand

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

One of the first things that Poppi, next door did was to apologise for Andreas, her husbands radio, he has it loud because he is deaf. It is not the radio itself but the fact that it is not tuned in properly and plays the local station. The local radio consists of local politicians haranguing each other and Europop, I do not mind the folk music. He also wanders off for half an hour at a time.
Any local event is accompanied by very loud pop music, The local youth ride noisy, underpowered scooters up and down the road in the evening

Actually, I was very pleased to meet the young man with the baby for the first time because not only did he introduce himself, his 'little man' in the pram but also told me his partner's name, then offered to help me up the stairs with a heavy item then first thing he asked me was what the hell was it with all the noise and the tent? I felt from those first five minutes that we were both on the same page so to speak!

Two encountered while out, both have been annoying me for some time

Why do stores find it necessary to refer to "colleagues" rather than "staff"? As in "this is a colleague announcement", or "please ask a colleague for assistance", sign seen on a till; that one is so wrong, I don't work in the shop so I don't have any colleagues there. Today in Sainsbury's I saw "This shelf is for colleague use only" - a printed, standard label. Do they think it is more respectful than referring (accurately) to staff or employees?

If the area in front of the door is crowded, then they block the stairs instead.

Oh yes to both of those! I think when 'colleague' is used amongst staff it is supposed to sound warm and cosy (but doesn't), to use it in any other context is, as you say, just wrong.

My (lovely) neighbours.
A couple of weeks ago I commented on here that they were using their tumble dryer when it was 30deg outside.
Today it is raining and they are using their washing line.

That has to be the only logical explanation! :lol: Aren't folk odd?

But they seem to be everywhere though.....our local illegal camp site owner has sleeping bags and pillows hanging on our communal washing lines. It's hissing down and extremely windy. He's not even pegged any of them on so it won't take long for them to be blown about and rolling in puddles. I mean, break the rules if you are brave enough, but at least be discrete about it! :rolleyes:

I envy you your puddles!!! It's still 34 °C and more here during the day and we haven't had rain in weeks, save for a few shorts minutes a few days ago. I am living in hope for tomorrow.

Another thing I don't understand is why people feel the need to BBQ "wild" in the parks in this heat and with everything so dry. I'd hate to have the bleeding BBQ anywhere near me even in the evenings ... these days you can get salads, breaded Schnitzel. Frikadellen and what have you at the supermarket to take onto a picnic (most of those "wild" BBQers seem incapable of preparing any other kind of food). Why do it?
If you want romantic light in the park, take LED fairy lights. Some of them cost as little as 1 Euro. :hi5:

I am not sure whether disposables are banned already here, but it was certainly discussed.
At the moment we are in the grip of a drought and so smoking, BBQing and everything else that might cause a fire is banned in parks and woods.
Still, people won't be told.

All none-fixed barbecues are banned - charcoal ones anywhere and gas ones only allowed on one's own property. Those disposable ones are officially illegal and anyone caught using one anywhere can be heavily fined.

OH has referred me to a report that says that in these days of central heating and electric cookers, people have lost the basic folk knowledge of dealing with open fires.

I am of the school of thought that says “Why bother with the fuss of a barbecue in your garden when you probably have a perfectly good cooker and grill in your kitchen a few feet away”.

re tumble dryers, I do stick towels and bath mats in mine on the no heat setting for a while to fluff them up. When it's less hot/people are barbecuing, they are tripple-dried (as opposed to fried...) - line, inside, then tumble drier.

barbecues: I bought one a couple of months ago, with all the trimmings, and its still not being used :o I love smokey food, but OH, it now turns out, can't be fussed either and there's no point in doing it just for me.

We don’t often BBQ, mainly because OH has never really got the hang of it! And I do find it a hassle if only doing a couple of steaks or such like. We do have a large wood burning pizza oven though, and we do use that a lot, winter and summer not only for pizzas, but tray-bakes and roasts too.

I like proper barbecues where quite a few people are invited and they have a half barrel or something to cook on (or one of our friend Dr Sweetsmoke's wonderful ones!). What I don't get are people like my neighbours.They get out a little BBQ set and a small garden chair and table. Light the BBQ with something that smells like neat petrol and then crucify two small pieces of meat on it almost immediately. Plates already servedwith salad and anything cooked indoors are brought out, the meat is added. They eat the plateful, don't have seconds or pudding, clear everything up and go back indoors. A BBQ in the park as described would be a bit like that too - and of course silly when everything is so dry.

We only bbq when we have visitors and even so, at the moment it is far too hot to cook outside even after the sun has gone down. in a small garden the heat is just too much.

Mr R never ever got bbqs so I have always both prepared and cooked them. These days GS will happily take over and is much more reliable than his grandfather - who always gets distracted by something.

If it cools down a bit by Monday when they arive it will be spatchcocked Moroccan quails served with a fruity cous cous.

Given the choice I would rather eat indoors in the "cool"

There is suddenly a fashion for wearing fluffy mules in place of sandals with shorts, I had a pair and wore them as summer slippers, the advantage being that as they were fluffy and silly I'd never wear them past the gate and so the soles stayed clean. But round the shops / seafront?

I'm with you on that one Sue. I think I mentioned it earlier on the thread actually. They were dead fashionable last summer and seem to have made a reappearance this year too.

Saw someone wearing these last May at Alicante airport, and a few others here and there. Thought it was a strange choice for the heat and boarding planes etc. Not so many this year though.

We BBQ just for us, Mr. Z has got the hang of it and does not burn it, we like the flavour - not a gas job, proper C'coal and briquettes on a pot bellied BBQ, it works a treat, and we do eat outside, in the shade under the cherry tree. I would not cook a steak on a BBQ I have a George Forman (3 mins max.) for that. We do also BBQ sliced courgette, aubergine, onions cup in half. Mushrooms and peppers on a skewer. The burning coals at the end are used to heat water for washing up the BBQ tools. :tu:

So do I really but we haven't room for a built in bbq whci is the only sort which legally allows charcoal use. You can see why when the tinder dry garrigue or Pine forests go up in flames.
Also very little of the chracoal sold is from sustainable sources so unless you have access to a wood supply it is rather more eco to use gas - only marginally I agree!

I rather enjoy bbqing, but wouldn’t really see a couple of burgers and sausages on a gas bbq as a real bbq.

Sunday I am attempting to cook a leg of lamb on the bbq. It will be done with wood and charcoal ( plus rosemary twigs) on indirect heat and will cook/smoke away for most of the day. Low and very slow. It will be served with warm new potatoes and a big mixed green salad. I may add some sausages etc at the end, depends really. Just deciding on what to put n the dry rub, definitely rosemary, salt , pepper maybe some celery salt? Ideas anyone?

Now that does sound like a good BBQ! I’d even light ours for that....do let us know how it turns out.
I have butterflied a lamb leg and cooked over charcoal before, but that was cooked to medium-rare, very nice, but we love long, slow cooked lamb.

Next time, do your meat on the grill. If it´s hot enough, it won´t take any longer, and the flavour will be 1,000 times better.

We virtually live on barbecues in the summer. Hubby often does extra meat to be used in pack up as sandwiches, in salads or wraps. Last night it was steak and roasted veg. Hubby sometimes smokes meat as well. We also have a fire pit in which we do tandoori chicken, lamb etc. The fire pit needs to be redone which hubby will eventually get around to.

It was :drool: :drool: :hungry:

The bbq was lit this morning. I marinated the lamb in a rape seed oil base with lemon, garlic and rosemary for a couple of hours and it went on the bbq. Five hours later it was cooked to perfection.

Would definitely cook larger joints of meat like this again. After the lamb came off we cranked the heat up a bit and cooked some sausages to be eaten cold tomorrow.

The forever proving itself pointless Facebook suggesting people that I may know.

No, I don't know them. I didn't know them yesterday either. Or the day before that. Or the day before that. Or the month before that. Nothing you can say will change the fact that I do not know them. The likelihood of someone vaguely interesting popping up that I do actually know is getting less and less likely by the day isn't it, try as I might to understand your theory of me somehow knowing unknowns. :lol:

Ha ha Tezza. I think they are usually friends of friends and people you neither know or are likely to!

The lamb sounds lovely BB. :chops:

I do find the FB suggestions reasonably sensible - but there's a limit to the number of backgammon nerds I need as FB friends
And it keeps suggesting Liz X which is reasonable as she is a good friend of one of the people I chat with a lot on FB

The bbq was lit this morning. I marinated the lamb in a rape seed oil base with lemon, garlic and rosemary for a couple of hours and it went on the bbq. Five hours later it was cooked to perfection.

Would definitely cook larger joints of meat like this again. After the lamb came off we cranked the heat up a bit and cooked some sausages to be eaten cold tomorrow.

BB, your lamb sounds perfect. You say you might try more larger joints....what about this?
We were at a very large family wedding up in the NW of Scotland, an old hunting lodge near Lochinver last weekend This bbq lamb was very good, served with dauphinois potatoes, lovely green veg, and a simple jus. Note the bicycle spit!

That looks fabulous! Not sure I’m quite that adventurous but it sounds wonderful.
