40 years....where does the time go

 Thank you for your kind comments, Mothering Sunday is a difficult day for those of us without our Mums - and for those who couldn't see their Mums or indeed their children this year, due to the pandemic.  But each day now is a day nearer to when we can see all our loved ones again, and have a cuddle!

Today is our 40th anniversary - that is, the anniversary of the day husband and I first met and he asked me out 40 years ago.  Funnily enough, I actually turned him down that day.  We met on a bus - he was the driver, it was a Sunday and the bus was virtually empty, so we got chatting....I did actually like him, he was cheeky and made me laugh and I've always been attracted to men who make me laugh.  He asked me out for a drink with him after he'd finished his shift, but I said No because I didn't want to seem too eager (pays to keep them keen 😉) so I told him to try asking me again the next time he saw me.  Which turned out to be 2 days later....he asked again and I said Yes that time.  We dated for a year, then moved in together, and finally got married 14 or 15 months after that.

Seeing as we can't go out for a meal, we talked about what to have as a special meal cooked by me.  We decided on duck, we both like duck but, for some reason, hardly ever have it.  So I'm roasting a whole duck and making a marmalade and orange glaze to finish it off.  We'll have it with baby potatoes roasted whole with rosemary and sea salt, cauli cheese (which I made and froze previously) and buttered Savoy cabbage.  Lemon cheesecake for pud - bought, I'm not spending hours in the kitchen!  I'll probably do a stirfry with some of the duck tomorrow, and freeze the rest.

  7. Question for you please. I have never heard of cauliflower cheese till I started reading British blogs. I found a recipe on YouTube by a Scottish woman and made it. Do I make the recipe, cook and freeze or just assemble and freeze. I'm in the US and wasn't sure. Thanks.
