Almost 2 weeks ago my phone rang…..”I am on the Coast for the weekend…do you think you’ll be available”?   OMG….I have not seen you in almost 8 years,  do you for one minute think I will not be able to see you?  “So if you can make it, let’s meet at Marina Mirage, there is a wonderful restaurant called Glass”!

Nothing in this world was going  to stop me seeing you after such a long time…you looked so wonderful, even after all that you had to go through these last couple of years.

I ordered charred lamb fillets, goats cheese, pomegranate, fine beans, caramelised pumpkin and red onion with balsamic reduction…….

You had eye fillet, trio of mustards, cauliflower puree with Gruyère cheese, green beans wrapped in bruschetto.

Dessert was Manderin and cream cheese Parfait with Lemon and Basil aspuic, chocolate madeleine.

Wine (this one’s for Cindy) Hensche Henry’s Seven (a Shiraz, grenache, viognier blend…(I’m keeping one specially for you girlfriend!!)

I came home after a wonderful day ….Jusqu’à la prochaine fois mon ami très spécial!!!  Mwah xoxoxoxo
