We have been thinking about staycation ideas with JORD watches. Usually, we would spend a while planning to see somewhere that is far away from where we live. This year though, we have spent some time closer to home. We needed to keep an eye on the time so my Dad took his unique watch from JORD along with us.
Do all Holidays Need to be Far Away?
My children find long journeys difficult. They are so excited and eager to get to our destination, that the trip seems to last forever for them.

This year, we are trying to make our British barbecue more exciting by using a wider range of recipes than the usual food that we seem to make each year. We have been experimenting with Simply Beef and Lamb’s Citrus Marinated Steaks recipe to add more flavours to our barbecue. Our BBQ Rump Steaks with Citrus Dip can be used with steaks in a variety of ways. We have also been trying out different potato side dishes.
Here is our Sundried Tomato and Mushroom New Potatoes recipe which is a side dish that works very well as part of a barbecue menu or for party food. It is so easy to make yet is packed full of flavour.
We looked in our fridge and cupboards to see which foods we had to make a side dish for our summer barbecue. We often go to the shop to buy extra foods but as we are trying to cut our food bill lately, we decided to only use foods that we already had in the house. It worked very well and we didn’t spend a penny extra.
