Birthday Boy

We celebrated Andrew's birthday yesterday, he had a lovely day and an evening full of family, games and yummy food.

The boys took over the table while I prepared the birthday tea. Andrew had been waiting for Adam to come round so they could play subbuteo together, it was brilliant listening to them play. There was lots of recapturing of childhood and Imogen enjoyed herself to being the ref and doing the score thingamajig.




 For his birthday tea Andrew decided he'd like some stuffed potatoes. We had stuffed baked potatoes and stuffed mushrooms.



Lots of cheese and chunks of gammon were included...




 There was some tasty cheese and garlic bread and sour cream, we also thought as it was such a naughty meal we should have some nice fresh tomatoes and cucumber too!



 So we feasted on this only to follow it with Birthday cake! Adam helped Imogen put the candles in and she carried it through while we all sang Happy Birthday, and Andrew made his wish as be blew out the candles.




Chocolate cake with ice cream and topped with squirty cream... oh the decadence :)




Well it's only once a year and we've been so good today. I made some tasty soup earlier and we had it for tea with crusty rolls.

Take care

  9. Hello Cheryl
    Sounds like a really good birthday spread ....and happy birthday to your son. Those potatoes in their jackets look really scrumptious which gives me an idea for something different for lunch tomorrow. A nice salad and some baked potatoes with frills.......thanks for the idea! :-)

    keep well

  11. Happy belated birthday to Andrew. Was the Subbuteo a birthday gift? I remember my brother playing it when we were kids. I'm craving stuffed potatoes now that I've seen this, they look yummy.

  12. Happy Birthday to Andrew. There is nothing wrong with the odd blowout, so long as it's not every day. Those stuffed potatoes look amazing.
