DH is 40 tomorrow and we have to stay in

So therefore I want to give him something nice to eat ..... BUT I can't be bothered to slave over a hot stove all day

Anyone know what I can cook - that is special - but doesn't take me an age to make !!!

What sort of food did you have in mind

You name it - I'll cook it - he's not that fussy.

What about kebabs, rice and pitta - nice easy meal, takes little prep time, little cooking time and is quite light so leaves room for some yummy pudding.

Kebabs could just be veggies (peppers, tomatoes, shallots, corn with chicken or pork of fish). 15-20 minutes cooking time only.

How about buying some big fat duck breasts, pan fry them for a while (after scoring the fat on the top) say 15 mins and then take them out and put in the oven. Pour a big slug of red wine and some orange juice into the pan and reduce, repeat a few times and you will have a lovely sauce with a bit of seasoning.

Serve sliced with new potatoes and french beans

And get a lovely pre made pudding or make something simple like pavlova.


Happy birthday to your dh
