Pop’s birthday dinner

Posted on

We are well and truly back in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s taken a while to adjust I have to confess although there is something so nice about being somewhere where people know you, where you can run into someone at the local shops…

But until we get back on our feet again, we’re in limbo mode again. But limbo with perks. We’re camping out in my parent’s spare bedroom where we receive free board in return for cooking. It’s an arrangement that makes everyone happy, especially after a year without an oven!

It was my Pop’s birthday this week and he requested fish, a yummy salad and new potatoes. So we delivered spicy walnut encrusted fish, orange and parsley salad, green salad with lots of yummy bits and new potatoes with just a little butter. I also made Tiramisu from my Italian friend’s home recipe, the kind that’s been passed down from generation to generation… delish. (Although not a pretty site after it’s been demolished by a spoon. Then it turns into Tirami-suvius.)

Then we road tested the new crystal glasses we gave him with a snifter each of Laphroaig. Not a bad night really, and nice to say Happy Birthday in person rather than on Skype.
