Valentine Meal 2017

David and I got together to cook up a special Valentine Meal for our other halves – albeit, not on Valentine’s Day itself.

We’d done the planning and the shopping on Wednesday, so all that was left to do, was the cooking itself. No ready-meals here – and we actually visited a REAL Butcher too!

I popped over to David’s at around 5pm and we did most of the preparation there – and by 6.30, we were almost ready.


Preparation: Eggs en Cocotte


Preparation: Braised Beef Short Ribs


Nearly there! Three hours later…



et Voilà!


Fair to say that Dessert went down well too!

Well, there weren’t any left-overs (so that’s a good sign!) and we finished off the evening with a Movie: this year it was the original ‘Sabrina’ from 1954 starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden.

David had thoughtfully picked up a couple of appropriate mugs for tea too!

A great evening!
