Happy Birthday Big Fella

It's my Boy's 27th birthday today. I forgot to say Happy Birthday to him this morning as I was still sleepy when he left for work, and I grunted at him when he kissed me goodbye.

I'm cooking tonight for us and our mums - I'm doing chicken fillets poached in white wine, with potatoes/parsnips/carrots roasted with rosemary and garlic, and tenderstem broccoli and caramelised shallots. Wow, that sounds like I actually know how to cook doesn't it?*

This means I have to fly home - via the shops as I forgot to buy fresh rosemary - and get peeling the mountains of veg. Then I have to clean the bathroom, hoover up the copious amounts of fur that my cats shed (you could stuff a pillow with it all, I don't know how they're not bald), cook the rest of dinner, make myself look halfway decent and then be the hostess with the mostest for the rest of the evening.

But - much like the lady in the L'Oreal ad - he's worth it.


* I don't - this (and the odd lasagne) is about the extent of my repertoire.

Cam says thanks for birthday wishes. Dinner was a success - roast potatoes were my best yet (something to do with new oven I think), although the caramelised shallots didn't happen as flingin-flangin M&S didn't have any :o[

Other than that it was good!
