Reading time: < 1 minute...David and I got together to cook up a special Valentine Meal for our other halves – albeit, not on Valentine’s Day itself. We’d done the planning and the shopping on Wednesday, so all that was left to do, was the cooking itself. No ready-meals here – and we actually visited a REAL Butcher too! I popped over to David’s at around 5pm and we did most of the preparation there – and by 6.30, we were almost ready. Preparation: Eggs en Cocotte Preparation: Braised Beef Short Ribs Nearly there! Three hours later… et Voilà! Fair to say that Dessert went down well too! Well, there weren’t any left-overs (so that’s a good sign!) and we finished off the evening with a Movie: this year it was the original ‘Sabrina’ from 1954 starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden. David had thoughtfully picked up a couple of appropriate mugs for tea too! A great evening!
