|My mother in law had her 80th birthday this week.|
We had the family over for dinner at our home.
I forgot to buy candles, so after scrounging around, I found some.
Unfortunately, they were the sort that keep re lighting after been blown out!
Probably not the best idea for an 80 year old?
She has a good sense of humour and laughed along with everyone else...
|Quick eggplant salad.|
Cut some eggplant into strips, and boil in salted water for a few minutes until soft, then drain well.
Add lots of chopped mint, parsley, basil and garlic.
Then slosh generously with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Mix well, taste for salt and add black pepper.
Yummy that goes well with the chicken and beef snitzels that I made...
