I made Persian couscous, an Indonesian brown rice salad, hot potatoes with garlic butter, lettuce salad, garlic bread.
Tim carved up the turkey.
It had cooked beautifully the evening before.
Everyone who ate it said it was tender and delicious.
A few of us couldn’t face it for various reasons along it’s chain of demise – Chrissy, Cat & myself to name but three
We weren’t too sure whether to welcome this mystery guest or not??
We waited for Louisa & Roger to arrive back from tiki touring in their boat.
They arrived back around 2pm.
Just in time for Sunday lunch!
No sense in rushing the day.
Then a bit later we managed to squeeze in some dessert.
Nathan didn’t want a cake.
He just asked if I would make gallons of Ambrosia!!
I did make a cake.
It was a new recipe.
Jo Seager’s Big Chocolate Birthday Cake.
It was delicious.
A mixture of chocolate, cocoa and sour cream so an interesting texture.
Iced with chocolate.
It was so rich that it defied decoration.
I also gave him a funny drinking glass with a sparkling LED light in the bottom and a book all about knives throughout the ages and the world.
