As much as I enjoy cooking and baking for my family, it is always nice when I do not have to and to have someone else prepare a meal for me instead. I suppose as a family we eat out maybe once a month, sometimes more like if we are away on holiday. There was a time when my boys were younger that we hardly never ate out. Mostly due to them being fussy eaters and also because sometimes the hassle of keeping them occupied while waiting for food, was too much for me to be able to relax and enjoy the ambience of eating out!
With summer upon us and the weather having a warmer and sunnier feel to it now, it is the perfect excuse to indulge in some light lunches and evening meals that look as bright and cheery as the weather outside. Well, unless it is raining of course as it is now as I write this, but still, a plate of tasty and colourful food is guaranteed to cheer me up and remember that the sun will return and it is a British summer!!
