Marg and Allison Weeks Winsloe PEI
For the fifth year in a row, we are pleased to join the ever-growing circle of folks honouring the World’s Longest BBQ with great feasting from the land and sea. Prince Edward Island is at its glorious best right now with fresh everything – raspberries, blueberries, potatoes, herbs, veggies, lobster etc. With such abundance, one could day-dream all day about the best BBQ choices.
To prove that we live in a province of great food wealth, TWO BBQ events have emerged on our weekend schedule. Firstly, we will attend a “Parent’s Party” planned by our daughter and her husband in conjunction with a cluster of their childhood and university friends. They all invite us, their parents, to a potluck get-together at a cottage on the north shore. Steaks, porkchops, sausages and burgers sizzle on the grill to accompany a table ladened with every salad and dessert imaginable. It’s a wonderful intergenerational gathering that makes us proud of our young adults and their thoughtfulness… and we have made it part of the World’s Longest BBQ this year.
Secondly, our immediate family will have a relaxing BBQ on Sunday afternoon – in honour of Anita’s BBQ extravaganza and also this year to mark the excitement of a new home that our daughter and son-in-law will move into next week. We will feature tender Island beef and pork, a new potato, carrot and zucchini medley, a broccoli salad, and fresh berries in meringue cups (+ whipped cream of course).
We are thankful for our abundant life and a big cheer to you Anita, for bringing us all together around the BBQ.
