I wish you many more wondrous birthdays to come. :-)
So John and I had fun cooking Fran some dinner! We assembled:
Oysters – from Clevedon; Jumbo sized of course! Sprinkled with lemon sunshine
Bacon-wrapped scallops, baked in an impromptu marinade of teriyaki, olive oil, parsley, sugar and soy – served alongside an extra garlicky-teriyaki dressing (for some oomph)
Good, honest eye fillet steak – Worcestershire, salt, pepper
Sliced button mushrooms, cooked in yummy sauce
This evening, we went out to dinner too, and dessert – but that is a story for another time, because right now it is time for a bit more reading, then bed. Good night!
