Another Birthday for the year

Today is my hubby's birthday. It was a low key affair as most of the family are away at work.  Miss M came over to have dinner with us.

I started to let hubby open his present and then realised I forgot to take a photo of how lovely it looked sitting on the side table all day!  oh well....a quick snap while he looks at the cufflinks I bought him.

Hubby L-O-V-E-S oysters 'au naturel' so I bought him a dozen Tassie Oysters to enjoy as a pre dinner treat.

Not my thing though and Miss M is not too keen either so he gets to eat the whole lot and he scoffed them all up in a jiffy.
Then I cooked some salmon fillets with a veggie medley sprinkled with lemon zest.

 We are putting off dessert until the weekend when the boys will be here to share some birthday cake with dad.  He didn't go without cake though.  I was up till midnight last night making this carrot cake for him to take into the office today.  It was easy to make and devinely yummy but I had to wait ages for it to cool down before I frosted it.
for the recipe sourced at taste.com.au

Love him lots and lots and know he had a nice day.



  1. Happy Birthday to Hubby - salmon for dinner - that would suit me too.

  2. Happy Birthday to your hubby....the carrot cake looks divine!

  3. Mmmmmm.... The cake! Happy birthday to your hubby!
