Dad's Birthday



When we went shopping last week dad spotted a lemon cake in the supermarket. But as the cakes you buy there are never as tasty as the ones you make yourself. I decided to surprise him, not with the bought cake, but with a homemade Lemon Meringue pie....



It was a new recipe and I was a little worried about the meringue part of the cake. But it all went wonderfully according to the recipe & I must admit I liked the look of it when he came out of the oven!

My sister and her boyfriend joined us for lunch and dinner on Saturday. The Meringue was a BIG hit. We catched up and drank tea, gave dad his presents. Time is always limited on these special days isn't it?! For dinner we had a fennel and mandarin salad, broccoli and French fries, the last one a request from the Birthday boy :)

Made in our new machine with just potatoes and one tablespoon of oil. It was a lovely dinner, visit and Birthday. We hope to celebrate many more like it here at Pale Rose cottage.

How have you been? Celebrated a special day? Cooked a lovely meal? Had a visit from family? Do tell us all about it, we love to know!

Best wishes,
Jo's Daughter
