As you are probably aware, Monday nights are a pretty big deal at Casa Burt. It has always been our designated family dinner time and Daddy usually creates something magical in the kitchen!
I've been absent the last couple of weeks, I apologize. Unfortunately, illness got the better of me and I spent all of Semana Santa (Easter week in Spain) in bed with an infection. I'm not one to give in to sickness but I literally couldn't get out of bed.
But I'm all better now and have come back fighting!
The weather in Spain is seriously hotting up now that we are nearing May and the evenings have just been glorious!
I thought it would be the perfect time to debut our terrace for 2014.
When I got home from uni the table was already beautifully set.
Vino tinto (Abadía Mantrus, Joven Crianza Ribera del Duero) for him
Do you always need a special occasion to drink champagne?
That's the rule in our household
Then it was finally time to sit down and relax.
"Oh c'mon Mummy! I know I'm gullible, but I'm no fool!"
"It's the truth! The Daily Mail said so!"
"He's gay anyways" Daddy interrupted.
Not too seductive now Kim!
He was feeling left out, so it was kisses for Daddy
Can you guess what was on the menu tonight?
Not just any steak though.
This was Tournedos Rossini.
My favourite meal ever!pâté
Baby new potatoes with rosemary and garlic
Yummy Yummy Yummy
Champagne and fillet steak = absolute perfection.
We had all had a very busy day yesterday working at Bogarts Restaurant so this whole evening was well deserved. I love Monday nights!
