Happy Birthday Doug!!!

Guess who is had a birthday today? Well, technically, it still is his birthday. Yep, all day on the 15th of September my husband, best friend, motorcycle ridin' old man celebrates his big day.




We enjoy cooking or grilling at home much more than going out for celebrations. Don't get me wrong, for our 25th anniversary we hit Bonefish Grill and tanked up on Lemon Drop Martinis and Woodford Reserve (guess which one of us was the Lemon Drop kid and which was the Bourbon drinker?)

But today, after opening his gift...he chooses to have grill aged steaks, roasted asparagus, garlic bread and Black Forest Pie.

Happy Birthday Baby!

Present...a cool grill set............



What did he choose? Aged steaks from Fresh Market....................



Roasted asparagus with olive oil and Parmesan.......




St Andre cheese, a Bordeaux Superieur..what a nice meal........



Black Forest Pie..............





Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy birthday Doug! Can't think of a more perfect celebration dinner. Like you we much prefer staying in to going out - exception might be going out for brunch.

Oh you got hold of St Andre (sold by Mum's cheese lady) - my favourite French cheese by far ... double cream and so very good! Save for a holiday and come to France ;o)
