Happy 30th

Tomorrow morning my handsome hubby turns 30 :)

We are going away for a long weekend to celebrate & we had a mini surprise "unbirthday" party for him. I put some balloons & banners up, there was a cake, some presents & party poppers plus a meal & some champagne.  He said & I quote "you have turned my birthday into a festivity" :) He was very surprised.

I am so lucky to have him in my life, So Happy 30th Birthday my darling. May you live a long, healthy & a happy life. 

All my love,

New Recipe with meatballs

As I had said previously, one of my new year's resolutions is to share some recipes with you all.

A while ago I didn't know what to cook so just looked around the fridge & the cupboards to see if I can find anything useful.  To be honest this usually happens towards the end of the week when another shopping trip to the supermarket is due. That's how i come up with various recipes :)

What I had was:

Fresh beef meatballs
baby hot-dogs

So I made this dinner & hubby really loved it.
I started by shallow frying the meatballs, then added one small sliced onion and the hot dogs. Then added mushrooms, salt & pepper. Then added some dry herbs such as thyme, oregano & basil. Then added a can of chopped tomato & some tomato purée.  Then made some couscous & when the meatballs where cooked added the couscous to the same pan for five minutes.   I then served it with tortilla bread & some olives mixed with feta cheese.  It was yummy : ) I suppose you could have it with any pickles or a side salad. 
It also goes with a glass of red or white wine.

Hope you all are having a great week.
