#1 Have A Fake BBQ

Love a good old BBQ but don’t have the time to get everything ready? Fake it! The tip here is keeping things simple. Grab some ready made burgers and baps from the supermarket.  Cook the burgers in a grill pan for that fake BBQ taste. Serve with 3 simple accompaniments: buttered new potatoes, coleslaw and a mixed salad.

#2 Garlic Bread Lasagne

 This video has been doing the rounds on Facebook and if we are honest we think its inspired (and very easy). Instead of using pasta sheets this lasagne is made with garlic bread slices – yum.
