A summer barbecue

There are just a couple of weeks left of August so why not have a summer barbecue? The USA and Australia are well-known for their love of the bbq with grilled meats, coleslaw, meat and vegetables on skewers, salads, burgers and sausages.


bbq – barbecue* = barbacoa


Let’s have a barbecue this weekend!


I’m going to barbecue some chicken.

I need carrots, cabbage, mayonnaise and vinegar to make some coleslaw.
