We have had a busy few days .We kicked off the weekend with takeaway and drinks with my lovely cousin. I think we came home at 4.oo am. sometimes it is wonderful to let your hair down and be a bit silly.
Valentines day was great. I wish I could tell you we sweep each other away to a hot destination, we just had a lovely baths with rose petal bath salts ,we shared a lovely meal (I cooked).We were in bed by 7 we put my twinkly lights on and snuggled up with a box of chocos and watched trashy tv .My kind of evening .
I have just finished tonight's supper , a mackerel dauphinose, such a simple meal. All you need are potatoes, double cream, smoked peppered mackerel fillets. Simply slice the potatoes , flake and skin the fish pour cream over toss together. Bake until soft, bubbling and golden brown, Serve with cooked green beans tossed with a little olive oil and a squeeze or two of lemon. Delicious.
