Happy early Valentines day .....

Well most of you know OH and I only have weekends together, so I booked saturday night off work and planned a meal!
Recipe:

Jamie Olivers Lamb Balti with Raita



Jamie Olivers Key Lime Pie

I made OH bath the kids so I could set up the table...


then once the kids were in bed I set to cooking the lamb balti.... OH dissapeared out to the car and came back with a dozen red roses which were a complete shock as he doesn't *do* valentines! so the table was rearranged, OH asked if he could make an addition to the table, a bottle of chilled champagne!! so the new table looked like this!


I do need to show you the fun OH had making poppadoms .... they turned out like this...

and also his winning scratchcard .... £5 won!!

Needless to say we had a lovely evening, infact it was one of the best nights we have ever spent together!!
