Happy birthday, Husband!

It was Husband's birthday yesterday: belated happy birthday, Husband!

On Thursday evening we went to Slice for a meal. Whenever we'd tried to go there before it had always been closed or full and, indeed, it was full on Friday and Saturday, hence the early birthday treat. But it was worth waiting for. A delicious meal (I had pheasant boudin followed by steamed brill on a bed of cockle and laverbread risotto) and great friendly service. They even decorated the tarte tatin plate. 

Then last night I cooked for him. We began with pan-fried scallops.

Followed by Beef Wellington (Husband's request).
Finished off with mini cheescake.
My timing, as ever, was a bit off but even I can't fault my presentation - well, I could but I won't.

And, of course  what made the day just perfect for him was England's defeat of the mighty All Blacks - with a record-breaking score.

I'm not going to talk about the Wales versus Australia game except to say I've never come so close to crying at the end of a rugby match.

I'd like to eat beef wellington. But not if it's red raw in the middle! I'm v old fashioned and basically unfashionable. Yeah tough as old boots and cooked thru for me.!!
