Where we eat around the kitchen table and not have the TV on in the background.
I prepared a three course meal.
For starters I prepared tomato and mozzarella and arranged it in the style of Gusto.
Well all I can say is the chefs must have a sharper knife than I have as my tomatoes didn't look quite as good as the Gusto ones.
I just cut up the mozzarella and sprinkled salt and pepper all over. Simple yet very tasty.
I bought the tomatoes at a local fruit and vegetable shop in Ferryhill which set me back 58p for two and the mozzarella from Sainsbury's which cost me £1.
The main course is a favourite of mine. Bangers, beans and mash.
I got some Geordie Bangers from the Quayside market on Sunday.
This giant cumberland sausage could easily feed 3.
Pealed, chopped, boiled and mashed my potatoes.
And I added a table spoon full of butter.
I heated up the beans, fried off the bangers and fried up a few mushrooms.
Mushrooms for me none for R.
The main course was delicious.
The bag of potatoes from Asda were £2 and loads were left over, cumberland sausage £3 Quayside market, Sainsburys own beans 35p and my mushrooms 90p but a lot were left so I had plenty to eat after.
As we were so full from starter and main course for pudding we had a Mars bar ice cream. They were on offer in Sainsburys. 2 boxes of 8 for £2.50.
And intimate dinner party for 2. I asked R to score me out of 10. He gave me 10 out of 10 for effort and 8 out 10 for food.
8 out of 10! That was way more than I thought.
A massive thank you to Ocean Finance for getting in touch and asking me to throw a dinner party. It was the perfect dinner date.
