Here’s a little known fact. British people possess the world’s most effective rain dance. Honestly. It’s such a surefire way to make the heavens open that tribes in some of the most arid parts of Africa now use it. It’s called ‘wheeling out the barbie’.
Yep. As soon as you dust off the barbecue, you can pretty much guarantee it’ll absolutely start tipping it down. We only mention this because on Monday, August 31st it’s the August Summer Bank Holiday!
Now, we all know that in Britain it’s only called a Bank holiday because you can bank on it pouring all day. But here at Porky Towers we’re not about to let the weather spoil the fun. Because for most of us, a bank holiday is still a whole day off work. Brilliant! So don’t waste it watching rubbish daytime telly. You’re better off cracking open a packet of Porky Whites and inviting some friends and family round.
Don’t worry if the weather’s iffy. Because you can still enjoy a sizzling afternoon without firing up the barbie. Simply plump for our legendary Porky Whites Surrey Sausage and get grilling indoors.
Made from the finest cuts of pork shoulder and belly and seasoned with a pinch of pepper and a hint of lemon and honey, the succulent Surrey sausage is a meaty and versatile all rounder. Use it in a leisurely full English bank holiday breakfast or a classic toad in the hole. Pop it in a tartlet, serve it with mashed potato and champ or as part of a summer stew with couscous. Couscous! How posh will the neighbours think you are?
But whether you’re barbecuing in the garden or grilling in the kitchen, break out the Porkys and make the most of Monday because guess what? It’s the last official day of what we laughingly call summer!
Besides, the next bank holiday isn’t for another four months. And even then, it’s only some piddling little affair called Christmas Day.
Happy Bank Holiday!
