Seafood Platter- a bit overpriced for what it was I thought

Potatoes and sauces...potatoes tasted like they had been refried...not good!

As you can probably gather we tend to celebrate our birthdays over days rather than on just one day. On the day before Dons actual birthday Pup and I cooked a delicious dinner of Lamb Shanks (you have got to try this recipe by Chelsea Winter because I think it's the best I have ever made), a super creamy potato mash and simple steamed green beans. Dessert was one of Dons favourites which is Baked Egg Custard. Pup set the table using my Grandmothers china and crystal glasses and some of her knick-knacks as well as making a powerpoint photo display set to an Avalanche City song called Love, Love, Love.

The next day we went off to Neighbourhood in Kingsland for lunch with Dons sisters. The place is AMAZING! but the food could have been better. However because it is such a cool place to go we will return for a glass of wine and a seat in the courtyard in front of the fire.

Anyway whatever you do make this Lamb Shanks's a total winner and I have since got her book because I was so impressed with it.
