A Happy Valentine's Day

A happy Valentines Day to you all.  

My daughter was given these beautiful roses by her boyfriend.  Ah, how romantic!

We have just enjoyed a delicious dinner cooked by my youngest son.  Chicken stuffed with crushed olives, in a creamy tomato sauce - delicious.  I got to make dessert, far more enjoyable to me than cooking main courses.  What did I make?  A heart shaped pavlova, topped with cream, blueberries, passionfruit and raspberries (from the freezer but grown in the garden).

It didn't stay like this for long, but there is still some left if you would like to visit.  You may have to be quick though, it's so tempting sitting there in the fridge, I may succomb to a late night 'Nigella' moment!  For those of you who are wondering what that is, Nigella is one of our TV chefs who effortlessly rustles up culinary delights and always at the very end of the programme is shown making a late night visit to the fridge to sneak an extra helping!  How she stays so slim is a mystery.

  1. She's nice and curvy, though - good food and hard work at the gym, I expect... Your pavolva looks great, and isn't it wonderful when mum becomes the sous chef and can leave things to the children?

    What pretty roses too - a romantic day all round.
