Re: Tell me about your perfect Valentine's!

Hi Jamie,

For valentine's Day I am planning a Barbeque. A night outside away from the cricket and T.V. I'll adapt the Grilled spatchcocked chicken recipe from the new book. Some cold beers and wine, some good conversation, enjoy each other's company whilst listening to the noises of the night.

Happy Valentine's everyone.

P.S. I kind of like the Lady and the tramp idea with the spaghetti but I don't think Mr. S. would go for it.  lol

Re: Tell me about your perfect Valentine's!

Hi All!

In an alternate universe Valentines day would involve my gorgeous husband surprising me with gargantuan bunch of red roses, a walk by the sea in a lovely quiet fishing village or a visit to the lakes, and dinner in a small restaurant (I love Jambo in Windermere) with something dark choclatey and indulgent for dessert, followed by an early night.

The reality will be wake up feed my gorgeous 12 week old son, worry about the mess in the house but have no time to clean it, change nappies, have microwave meal for lunch (sorry!), feed and change baby some more, play, coo, cuddle, kiss and giggle with baby, scoff a flake dark, watch baby beam as Daddy comes home from work, feed change and play some more, eat pork chops, mash, carrots and peas whilst laying on floor with baby on playmat/burping baby/bouncing baby/cuddling baby etc, and fall asleep on sofa, wake up at midnight for husband to feed baby, collapse in bed (due to exhaustion and not passion!!) say 'I love you' to both my son and husband and fall asleep.....then repeat.

The reality is soooo much better!!! Valentines doesn't just have to be a celebtation of love for couples, it can just be a day to make sure you tell the important people in your life that you love them.

Hope you all have a good one!

Re: Tell me about your perfect Valentine's!

Hi Ellie,

Busy eh?

I know what you are going through mate... we have a 9 year old, a 3 year old and a 2 year old...

As well as that my mrs works job share arond my hours so that one of us is always at home for the little ones, So that we dont need to use child care, and I work full time as a chef...quite a lot of hours. I understand where you are comming from, life can be sooooo manic!

But you know what they say mate, you get out of life what you put into it!

Just remember to make that little effort for you and your partner to spend a little bit of quality time together, when you have kids it is too easy to let your time together slide...

Keep going, Stay sane

All the best

Dave B

Re: Tell me about your perfect Valentine's!

I'll tell you in person today XD

Me and my girlfriend don't really do presents for valentines day, this year we set a £5 spending limit, i've got her a book called 'Guess how much I love you', were going to pizza express on valentines day, love it there!  cool  mrgreen

If it's a nice day might go out with her to the beach.

Re: Tell me about your perfect Valentine's!

Hi from Down Under Jamie :-)

I am planning on making "Summertime Tagliarini" from your new book.
It's my new favourite recipe :-D

I'm also thinking a Chocolate Fondue with strawberries, marshmallows and cake for the dessert.

Looking forward to your next podcast though - maybe i'll get some other ideas as well...

BTW: LOVING your new show!  thumbsup
