I say early 'cos it's actually today. Although there was a birthday lunch at my bro's place yesterday. Sharm (Sharminni, my sis-in-law) had made an amazing chicken & leek pie. Cottage pie-style with the filling beneath mashed potato. What took it over the top was the bacon in it...phwoar. Bacon makes everything better
The birthday cake was a mind-blowing shop bought Black Forest cake. I've never been a big fan of Black Forest and it's probably 'cos I've never had a really good one. Till yesterday. Double phwoar. The cherries in it were boozed up perfectly. The cake was light and rich at the same time. NO idea how they did that. The Devil's minions at work in the kitchen, obviously.
V2: The cake. Not that great, the cake pics. I hadn’t planned on uploading ‘em otherwise I would’ve taken better pics.
V3: Check out the kirsch-soaked cherry about to tumble out.
V4: On the way to my brother’s place I saw this massive lot of bougainvillea flowing out of somebody’s house.
