We rang him pretty early this morning to see if he was doing anything like watching the Rugby or if he fancied getting thrashed at You-Know-What.
He was out walking Buddy when we rang, so returned our call, asking us to take down a cauliflower as he had everything else for dinner.
It would appear that a cauliflower cheese is something he never cooks for himself and all the basic ingredients were waiting on the worktop when we arrived.
We got stuck in, Hubby preparing the cauli, MOH grating the cheese, and me making the sauce. The guys then left me to put it all together and throw into the oven.
This week’s special additives were a red pepper and some salami, the top covered with cheese and half a dozen cherry tomatoes.
Due to brilliant timing on my part, it was ready to eat before kick off of the first 6 Nations Cup, Wales Vs Italy.
Great match, Wales winning by a landslide which means two acquaintances here on the marina will be very happy chappies.
We played dominoes and cribbage before the next game, MOH losing both and ribbing us that once again we have secret signals, nods and winks. We tried to lose, but the cards just did not fall for him, and I was ‘home’ before he got halfway down the second leg on the board!
With a box of chocolate creams to commiserate and a cuppa, we tuned in to watch the second match, Ireland Vs Scotland. What a contrast in play strategies, but another good game, Ireland being the victors.
We couldn’t stay to watch England Vs France as it meant we wouldn’t get home before midnight, so we left shortly before kick off so that MOH could settle down for the night.
It’s been a really nice day today. The journey down was straightforward and coming back only took us an hour and a half, one of our best runs.
I must think of something else to cook next time though!
