I know, it's unfair to mention when the USA and Canada are in the grip of this polar vortex, but so far we've had an extremely mild winter. Loads of torrential rain and high winds, but only about 3 frosts so far.
So, on the 2nd of January, we had the first barbecue of the year. It's hard to think of anything finer than a sausage cooked over charcoal. We had them, correctly, inna bun.
