Well, the credit crunch is still grinding on, and I am also in the (un)fortunate position of trying to buy a house this month, so pennies are expectedly very tight! So to try and lighten the load my wife (Laura) suggested that she cook me dinner instead!
Well, we cook fresh dinners every night, so I didn’t think it would be that special, but I agreed (it’s always a good idea to humour the missus!).. was I in for a surprise!
First Course; pan seared scallops, wrapped in parma ham on a bed of shallots with a red wine jus, served with pink champagne.
Main Course: Roast duck breast with a spiced plum sauce, served with baked shallot-mashed potato and mange-tout with a
Dessert: Home made tiramisu, made with brandy and double cream!
Quite possibly one of the most delicious valentines meals I’ve had in a long long time!
So .. a huge thank you to my wife ! You rock my world
