If meals at home are normally prepared by mummies and/or with the assistance of a domestic helper, why not give them ladies a day off?
Daddies: Take the Kids shopping instead and embark on some “Basic BBQ Lessons”, by getting the kids to think about the following:
- How is food cooked outside the home kitchen?
- How to start a good fire? How long will it take?
- What kind of “BBQ Trade Tools” would be needed (equipment/crockery/aluminium/tongs)?
- Allocation of a reasonable budget.
- Creation of a DIY menu, taking into account the tastes of every family member. Who likes to eat What?
- Estimating the appropriate quantity to minimise food wastage and leftovers!
- Food hygiene and safety practices (eg. raw meat should be well-cooked).
- Delegation of duties for preparation, cooking and cleaning up, so everyone plays a role in making the BBQ an enjoyable family activity.
A family with strong bonds works, helps out, cooks, eats, laughs, plays, and simply enjoys time spent together! And a sizzling outdoor BBQ under the evening skies and stars simply makes it that much more memorable!
