Today is my other half´s 43rd!

Today is his 43rd.  It is a no-big deal day according to him but to me, the least I can do on this special day is to pamper him like how he does to me on any other day. 

I baked him my intepretation of Blackforest Cake sans cream, or shall I say cream at the side.

Flower was straight from the garden with herbs encircling it.  Simple and rustic.

And an overnight experience gift from me which came complete with 3 course dinner and breakfast which I tried presenting in a photo frame format last minute - this morning lol.

While the experience is yet to take place, I did have a backup for him to enjoy immediately.  But I haven´t got a clue what´s in it? lol  Its Glossybox for Men! Haha ..

The box content are great! Phewwww!

Chicken Schnitzel Dinner

Summer´s finally here so I´m starting to get into eating fresh mode again.  Its lovely really, walking down to the garden to gather whatever produce I need to prepare out dinner.  Salad selection, freshly harvested herbs all lightly seasoned with virgin olive oil and little balsamico and voila, a meal on its own.  I have been taking daily walk to nearby supermarket too, just to go pick up a packet of fresh meat to prepare our meals.  Normally a chore for me during winter, but not at all during summer as I take in all the lovely blooms on display on the way.  Last Thursday, I made chicken schnitzel for dinner.  Sort of a first time for me since I would usually use pork instead, but as one knows it, white meat is healthier than red meat so ...

Here´s to summer meal again :-) Full with tantalising colour and goodness :-)
