Happy Birthday

24 Nov 2012


Today my little sister turned 50.
Can you imagine, my baby sister, 50. 


We cooked a special family lunch
She didn't want too much fuss.

The food was delicious.
Katie made the entree,
 tiny tarts filled with brie and cranberry sauce with a touch of orange zest.

I cooked some marinated butterflied  lamb, sweet little baby potatoes bathed in butter and some steamed asparagus.
A couple of salads, Greek and a Stilton and walnut salad plus some yummy condiments; mint jelly, aoli, yogurt with cucumber and garlic.

Mum made dessert, an apricot cheesecake and a couple of cream sponges.

So that's it , now we are all in our 50s, next stop 60.
