Food Porn

We had a busy weekend!  and nerve wracking !  This was my weekend to meet Sir Steve's 4 year old daughter. 

And we had invited one of Sir Steve's couple friends for dinner on Saturday evening.......... I was cooking!

The meeting with daughter went well.  I have the philosophy of treating small children much like I treat pets.... I don't throw myself at them and overwhelm them.  I basically let them come to me.  By Saturday afternoon daughter had decided I was "family" and I even got a warm hug.

I had thought we'd have something 'fun' for supper on Friday night so I told her I was making 'toad in a hole'.... she went 'ewwwwwwww' but gobbled it up and even tried raw cauliflower for me (it's best when dipped in lots of mayonnaise!!!)

Toad in the hole -- for those of you who don't know this British delicacy - is sausage cooked in yorkshire pudding in a square pan.  I had had every intention of taking photos of ALL the meals I prepared this weekend -- but basically forgot. I did manage a picture of the leftover Toad in a hole though........... 



Saturday evening I prepared seafood Fettucini with shrimp and crab.  I was a wee bit nervous about getting everything ready at the same time and on the table hot -- but Sir Steve pitched right in in the kitchen cooking the fettucini to perfection and warming up the garlic bread.


Daughter's job was to call everyone to the table -- and once again the dinner was almost over by the time I remembered the camera........ (god nerves will do that to me!!)

homemade caesar salad


fettucini without the seafood -- I ate that first !! so basically just a boring plate of noodles........
 

For dessert I had made a pineapple cherry dessert with decadent whip cream......... now THAT I did take a picture of here at home under no pressure

dinner was  declared a success !!!

AND there are plans to do another dinner party this coming weekend - I'll try to remember to take photos of more than the leftovers - PROMISE!
