Ainsley Harriott attends my BBQ

Okay I got your attention but sadly it was not the man himself (I would have got him to work cooking if it had been!) but instead a selection of delicious Ainsley Harriott cous cous featured!  We were sent a lovely wicker hamper filled to the brim with no less than eight varieties and a selection of spices, oil, plastic plates and glasses and an assortment of salad essentials. 

So we were all ready for the big BBQ but we had to wait for the sun to play ball, luckily it did just before we went away on holiday so we could all savour the appetising flavours of the cous cous!  It was hard work having such a lovely hamper tormenting us, waiting to be used and having to endure lots of rainy Welsh weather and work on my patience…

I enjoyed some Asti out of the plastic glasses and needed a lie down afterwards!  I know my rock and roll days are well and truly over.  No more wild nights out like my university days.  Good thing I had eaten plenty of cous cous to soak it up otherwise I might have felt worse!

We were given some lovely recipes to try but we were happy for a rustic BBQ with plain meat and the cous cous being the fancy part.  

But if you are feeling more adventurous you can make some Fragrant Beef Koftas with Raita or Beef and Red Pepper Skewers.  Both sounded very promising, but with cous cous ready in five short minutes, it seemed easier just to relax, kick back and be lazy cooks!  

So next time also squeeze Ainsley Harriott in my hamper please, so he can pop out and make me something fancy to accompany the cous cous!!!
