Sometimes it's not going to be about special meals etc...
Tonight it's been a big hot long shower (the hot water service was out for 2 days)
left overs for dinner, and talking to friends...
just enjoy the music!

|It's 'Date Night For One' again and tonights' theme is basically black...|
|Field Mushroom cooked in the pan, then filled with Sun dried Tomato,|
Black Olives and Basil...with a bit of Vinaigrette.
|Pickled Baby Octopus dipped in|
Ketchup Manis and cooked in a non stick pan
until it's all caramelised and delicious.
|Home cooked Beetroot with Lemon Dressing and |
Eggplant with Anchovies and Green Peppercorns.
|Too good and the results speak for themselves.|
|Desert was Poppy Seed Loaf, Chocolate Ice Cream and Orange Segments.,|
with Pistacios and Currants
|It's such a treat and I enjoyed every crumb...|

|I'm thinking that Wednesday's good timing|
for 'Date night for one'...
|I've loaded up the day bed with books and rose petals |
and surrounded myself with candles.
|Sleeping somewhere else is like a little holiday,|
you feel different and special.
|Can't have enough Rose Petals...|
|I had Smoked Salmon Couscous, just delicious...|
|A big bath strewn with petals and infused with Rose water, |
not to mention something cold with Rose Ice Cubes...
|Just to finish Pecan Slice and Strawberry and of course more Rose petals.|

The first thing is to make a body scrub...
|This one's Honey and Sugar.|
|Mix equal amounts of Olive Oil and Honey with twice the amount|
of Raw Caster Sugar.
|It's ready to go and will keep for ages.|
Something delicious to eat ...
|My choice is Natural Oysters with Lemon and Rosemary Flowers,|
|I've made a chocolate sauce by melting Butter and|
Brown Sugar, adding Cream,
Spice Essence and Dark Chocolate...
just 30 seconds at a time in the microwave and stirring.
|Instead of Praline I've just smashed up some Werthers Originals.|
|And served it with Indulge Vanilla Ice Cream.|
Now To Relax...
|Time for a great big bath with lots of candles...|
|And of course a glass of French Champagne...|
Who says you can't have a date for one?.
