My marvellous hubby celebrated another birthday last week. We aren't a birthday-gift-giving couple - we buy eachother presents together throughout the year as "just 'cause pressies". So, not breaking with tradition, I didn't really get him anything! Yes, I ordered a photography book yet to be delivered but nothing on the day.
So later in the week, I organised with the help of my lovely friend Shelley, a little dinner gathering of Rick's older kids (bar one and his wife) as a surprise (they all live 1.5 hours away). And he was surprised. Rick's love language is acts of service so I think I hit the nail on the head with this one.
We dined on baked lemon & thyme chicken, roast potatoes, homemade yorkshire puddings (because Aldi discontinued them again!), steamed vegies and garlic bread. Followed by the easiest of easy desserts: Apple Crumble!
And this is our favourite beverage at the moment that Rick drinks "despite it being pink"!
Plus, I must thank Ms Rita for taking the photos as I was tangled in dishing dishes and toddler wrangling. xx
