When a husband turns 40!


Life is good when there is sunshine, good food and a reason to celebrate! Andrew, my husband of just 18 months has just turned forty . . . Perfect conditions for a celebration

So, with our very modern blended family (that includes a pug called Watson & a western highland terrier called Winston),  we held a long lunch on our deck one Sunday in May.

The menu ;

  • Indonesian style BBQ pork spare ribs
  • Vietnamese style BBQ chicken wings
  • Deboned oven roasted chickens stuffed with rice, shallot, ginger,water chestnuts & black sesame
  • Vietnamese noodle salad
  • Fresh king prawns
  • Steamed rice
  • And for dessert – chocolate coffee mousse with ginger snaps, fresh fruit salad,
  • And the cake – strawberry & rose shortcake with mascarpone icing
