Sarah’s birthday meal – 15th April 2012

Today Sarah celebrated her 37th birthday.

Unlike last year, when we went out for the day, this year the celebrations were somewhat more low-key.  With church in the morning and visiting relations in the afternoon, it wasn’t until the evening that we were able to enjoy a meal at Pizza Express.

We decided to opt for starters and I enjoyed my traditional favourite of dough balls.

Dough balls!

The main course proved more of a challenge.  I decided to bravely forego my standard choice of lasagne for something which sounded, on the face of it, quite nice – Meatball bolognaise.

Even as I ordered, Sarah questioned my choice, pointing out that my proposed dish contained ‘fiery roquito peppers’.  I naively brushed aside her concerns, saying that I could easily avoid them.  One day I’ll learn to listen to her!

A ridiculous menu faux pas

I battled through about a quarter of the pizza before being defeated by the peppers.

While we were waiting for the desserts to arrive, I took a few photos of the girls.

Eventually our various, mainly chocolatey puddings turned up.  Emily was a little disappointed to spot the strawberry on top of hers – she’s not a fan!

 Once the offending fruit had been removed and passed on to Rebekah, Emily enjoyed her dessert.

I also opted for a chocolate pudding.

It was an enjoyable meal (despite the fiery peppers!) and it was good to get out to enjoy it with the family.

Happy Birthday Sarah!
