For starters we got a pizza crust.
Looks like more than a crust to me. Lovely light base, very tomato-y.
Mains, I opted for the linguini with prawns, asparagus and sundried tomato in a creamy sauce
This was my favourite and I couldnt resist from stealing bits and pieces.
My sister's chargrilled chicken breast skewers had a flavoursome honey and mustard seed sauce to it. And there was the usual salmon with a sparse sprinkling of cous cous.
After reading about suze's chocolate pizza, when I saw that they offered chocolate hazelnut pizza with strawberries I knew that it was a definate go-er.
Oh oh oh so good. We were the envy of the other diners as they watched me plate up the pieces. There's no doubt they ordered some afterwards. The ice cream was an unexpected bonus and worked so well for presentation and eating purposes. It adequately moistened the finely powdered hazelnut topping sitting on the (suspected Nutella) chocolate spread.
Another unexpected bonus that just topped off the evening was this:
Birthday cake! Complete with sparklers! That was super of them, I was impressed. Even the strawberry made me go Wow. It was all so well done. And the cake, ooooh. If my cakes turned out this good I'd be over the moon. Moist and not too heavy and the perfect amount of chocolate, it also helped that it was warmed.
A great night, mum seemed to enjoy it so I'm glad.
It was later as I sat in my now-uncomfortably tight fitting jeans that I realised that they had not left out the sundried tomatoes like I had initially thought. And that what I had picked out thinking to be chili chunks was in fact the lost tomatoes. Even when my brother ate a piece he didnt notice what it was. I feel so wasteful, the tomatoes had been a component of the dish that had appealled. What a fool.
Waah. And there was something wrong with my memory card. Luckily I was able to have play-time with my brother's shiny new camera. *phew*
