Gimme gimme s'more, gimme gimme s'more

We actually have had some sunshine the last few days, which after months of unseasonable cold and snow, was lovely!

In fact it was so nice yesterday, we busted out the barby for the first barbecue of the season.  I had just bought some vegusto sausages so I knew what I was having, and to go along we also had:

The corn & edamame salad from Veganomicon.  I don't make this much but I need to, it's so simple but it's delicious! My mum and dad both loved it too.

I made a salad of just lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes and just dressed it with a simple olive oil and lemon juice dressing.
 
I also did some potatoes Jamie Oliver style (boil them, then put them in foil with lightly smashed garlic cloves, rosemary (I used dried) and salt & pepper), then put in oven for at least 20 minutes (mine had about half an hour). So good.
 
Also, I bought some fancy olives from Waitrose. They don't always have these because they're obviously popular but that is because they are AWESOME! They have a fat wodge of garlic and jalapeno in each one. YEAH.
 
 I also did some garlic bread (just a Sainsbury's basics one, which is accidentally vegan) but I forgot to take a pic, so you'll have to settle for seeing it lurking on my plate...
 
And for dessert I joyously remembered that ages ago I bought some vegan marshmallows, for no other reason than I found them in a shop near where I live!  But we didn't have any graham crackers (well we did but they were 2 years out of date) so we used speculoos biscuits instead (Lotus Caramel biscuits) and it was awesome.

The first one I was mucking around with so it didn't melt enough.  I did better on the second attempt though but I ate it too quick to get a pic.
 
 
Fingers crossed the warm weather stays with us for a while.

  1. Everything sounds so splendid! I love the simplicity of it all. I need to check out more of Jamie Oliver's stuff. I use to like watching his show back when we had food network.
