Tag: <span>Beef Wellington</span>

Note: The following post contains romantic imagery. Those of a weakened romantic disposition should look away now.

No flowers, or chocolates, just a drive to a cosy pub in Biggar, a roaring fire, and a wholesome pub lunch. A leisurely wander round the town and a meandering drive back, stopping to take pictures here and there (although when the sun began to dip, streaming through some clouds in the distance, could I find a place to stop the car? Could I hell..).

Home for dinner, Beef Wellington, baby potatoes and mushrooms. All hand-made by yours truly. A rather delicious Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon, and then a Chocolate and Almond Torte made by the missus. A few liqueurs, some music, some dancing, and then…

What a lovely day.

The Friday Five
1. Hey, baby, what’s your sign? Do you think it fits you pretty well?
I’m a Libra, and it always seems to be a bit tight for me, maybe I should lose some weight.

2. What’s the worst birthday gift you’ve ever received?
NOT being taken our for dinner. I was promised a slap up meal for my 21st – I didn’t want a party or any fuss. So I got all dressed up, my Mum & Dad came down to pick me up, and then said they had to pick something up in the house. Turned out they had thrown a surprise party for me. I’m STILL waiting for that meal! 😉

3. What’s the best birthday gift you’ve ever received?
A surprise party for my 21st! That and a Ben Sherman shirt from an aunt and uncle. She passed away (tragically early) a couple of years ago, but the shirt lives on and I think of her every time I see it hanging in the cupboard.

4. What’s the best way you’ve celebrated your birthday thus far?
Sounds terrible, but when we moved to the South of England, I had one birthday with just Louise and I. A wonderful meal in a beautiful thatched cottage restaurant out in the country (their Beef Wellington was to die for…). Quiet, relaxed, wonderful.

5. What are your plans for this weekend?
Closing the door, battening down the hatches to keep the weather out, turning up the heating and hibernating. Which probably means we will end up touring about and spending too much money. Big plans to finish the three books I’m currently reading.
