For the first time, I relinquished control over the kitchen
to my daughter and husband
I thought it would be hard, but it turned out not to be the case....
I should do this more often!
Elsa decided to bake me a cake from scratch
It was her first time, and I was keen to keep a watchful eye over her.
It went very well - except for a little confusion over the amount baking soda required in the recipe.
Small disaster averted, the cake came out perfect.
It was finished with chocolate custard cream
and sprinklings of cake crumbs
My husband took the helm as chief cook for the day
As he has never cooked before, I could expect just about anything
Rumour has it, he had been preparing for this for the last couple of weeks -
there were lots of whispers behind my back, come to think of it!
He decided on an elegant meal of Sirloin Steak with Mushroom Sauce
I was seriously impressed!
Thanks, you guys for such a wonderful
one that I won't forget
in the near future!
