We like to eat outside in summer. We have big tables and a lot of chairs. On New Year’s Day, we had a lunch party with family and friends. The weather was good and we had a nice day.

But since New Year, the weather has not been so good. Sometimes it was windy. Sometimes it was cloudy, and sometimes it rained!

Today is a bright, hot day. So tonight, when it is a little cooler, we will BBQ and eat outside.

We will have yakitori. Do you know yakitori? They are Japanese-style chicken kebabs. We will have prawn kebabs as well. I don’t know Japanese name for prawn kebabs. Maybe it doesn’t matter because I will use Thai sweet chilli sauce with the prawns. So I will call them Thai prawn kebabs!

I will make yaki onigiri – Japanese rice cakes – because my family likes them. There is a small problem with making yaki onigiri in New Zealand. The Japanese rice I can buy here is not as good.

Sushi restaurants in New Zealand use good rice – I don’t know where they buy it!  I would not make sushi with New Zealand supermarket rice. But I make yaki onigiri – they are not as good as the ones I could make in Japan – but they are OK.

I hope we will have a great meal.
