It's been hot and sweaty and very very sunny around here for the past week or so. We're not used to this sort of weather in Scotland. BUT! It did give me a chance to try out something I have wondered about for a while now.
The combination of clear cloudless sky, the satellite dish we took off the side of the building a couple of weeks ago and few other bits and bobs: some tinfoil, a squirt of spray mount, the legs off the concrete mixer, a piece of pipe, two pieces of wood, one woodscrew, two drawing pins and the aluminium tray from a meat pie I had for my lunch last week (washed) - and I was ready:
To cook sausages!
Getting the sausages in just the right place was a little bit tricky to start with but it didn't take long for us to get the hang of it. the only real problem we had was that the focus of the dish was so small that we were only cooking one part of the sausage at a time we had to keep panning the dish from time to time to make sure the ends were done.
I had fun anyway.
