      Somehow, for the first time in over a decade of apartment/condo living I find myself with a barbecue. A good one at that. However having just fired it up for the first time and getting it up to 600°, I find myself a little worried about the logistics of running a BBQ on a balcony. I'm aware of my municipal and building regulations, the balcony itself comes with a natural gas hookup for the barbecue, so that's not an issue. My worry is whether it's safe to keep the bbq up against the wall that holds the gas hookup.

      My siding is either aluminium or floor to ceiling glass. My biggest fear is the heat warping either. The balcony itself is also glass, although I assume tempered, and considerering the unobstructed southernly direction the glass is used to getting heat in the summer.

      My question is for those who BBQ regularely on tildes. Any experience with barbecues in tight spaces and up against walls? Would you folks suggest pulling the BBQ away from the wall everytime I use it? If so how far?.

      My husband and I invested in a smoothie blender for the purposes of incorporating more fruits and veggies into our diets. We made our first batch this weekend — quite tasty, but definitely not perfect. Does anyone more experienced in the art of homemade smoothies have any wisdom they can share as we start to experiment with them?

      Hi,

      Where I am living we are going back into a month long lockdown, I would like to find some vegetarian recipes to cook.

      I am not a Chef but I cook everyday so more advanced recipes are fine, though I also like quick wins when I don't feel like spending much time cooking.

      What do you people eat when you don't want to eat meat? What are your favorite recipes?

      Thanks!
