This post contains pictures of food and talks about food - so skip this post if sensitive to that!!!
We arrived out at P's parents place around 3pm and we began with drinks and some chocolate to snack on while the food was being prepared. And by 5pm the food was finally ready and my stomach was like a black hole after eating some form of lunch hours earlier. The food served was a mix of different things, a beetroot, appple and carrot salad. Salmon, eggs, potatoes and asparagus, pasta with halloumi and tomatoes dish, salmon burgers among other delicious food!
The food was delicious however there was so much noise during the whole dinner... a baby crying, people talking louder and louder, all these debates and things so i ended up with a headache as the noise level rose and rose. So after dinner i felt i had to just lie down for a little while and let my headache pass before i then finished the decorations on my second cake.
I was apprehensive about the cakes as i hadnt tasted the whole thing together and i didnt really follow a recipe. The results? They were ok... they werent the best cake i have made but not the worst either, haha. Thats something positive anyway i guess :) The second cake had a brownie bottom, a raspberry mousse in the middle and the top was a type of vanilla frosting/mousse. I got praise from everyone, though i was a little disappointed as the chocolate cake turned out a little dry. But maybe i am just a little too critical when it comes to myself and my baking?
Anyway, while everyone is sitting and talking and a baby screaming i thought i would take a break from people (feeling the need to just be alone and have some peace and quiet! The introvert side of me) and write a little update :) Post some photos :)
It has been alovely day today, it's nice to spend time with family! Family and friends (or the people who care about you) are the most important and you should show you care :)
So to finish this post: My positives of the day!!
