Joe’s Potential Party Games
Lawn Twister – Twister…but on your lawn!
Beer Pong – A classic for all to enjoy – take your drink of your choice and throw your way to glory!
Catch the balloon – Spread out in a circle, and throw a water balloon around the group, if it bursts on you, you lose! (At least you’ll still be cool!)
Food – Perfect Peppers
4 peppers halved lengthways through the stalk and deseeded
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
2 x 125g balls mozzarella, sliced
2 tbsp black olive, chopped
1 tbsp chopped oregano
2 garlic clove, crushed
Heat the barbecue to hot. Rub the outside of the peppers all over with the olive oil.
Stuff the peppers with the mozzarella, olives, oregano and garlic, and drizzle with a touch more olive oil, if you like.
Wack on the barbecue, stuffed-side up for 12-15 mins until the pepper is nicely charred
Joe’s Top Tip – If you want that extra BBQ taste cover the pepper’s with a roasting tin!
