Looks great RPM :)
I cooked nothing at all :)
Went out for very nice dinner for first time in living memory.... shared starter of hummous with crispy flat bread.
Appertisers: I had bbq oriental style calamari with cucumber pickles and onion relish - sooo nice, other half had goats cheese filo pie.
Main: both had poached atlantic salmon - so soft and flaky. Fish was lovely, but it had been paired with asparagus in butter then a warm noodle and julienned veg salad, which supposedly was an asian dish. No soy, garlic, ginger, chilli....a bit odd, so just had the salmon which would have been great simply on a crisp salad. Left the rest.
Desert: oh boy mine was good. Chocolate tart with pastachio icecream and also some kahlua icecream with a chilled chocolate lattice. Very nice. Other desert was a summer bery pudding (english style) which kinda fell flat..... so I shared mine.
Not many people in restaurant (local festival was on here) so it was even better, no loud music, great unobtrusive service, and the other diners were in a great mood as well and good to talk to.
Young man proposed to his young lady, all very romantic, ring in the glass of champagne, long red stem roses....ahh young love. She said yes :)
