How it went, along with recipes and stuff, because I’m nice. :p
Around 6.30 I got up as usual, fed the chickens and the cat, cleaned the litter tray, washed last-night’s remaining dishes and tidied the hall.
By 7.30 I had made Jon a tea and returned to bed with it. We spent all morning watching random videos and cuddling.
At 9.30 we got up, I made a point of wearing some nicer, form-fitting clothes as opposed to my usual Sunday gardening attire. I then made him some Celt-fuel for breakfast.
-2 large eggs
-200g mixed vegetables (courgettes, carrots, cabbage; pre-cooked)
1: Cut up the meat from the chicken quarter and pan-fry it in butter.
2: Add the eggs and vegetables. Add salt and stir-fry.
After breakfast he played Diablo III for a while and had one of his favourite energy drinks.
We went to Sainsbury’s and got a load of sugar so as to jam our 12k of damson plums.
After that Jon did his weights whilst I started on the jam. Once the weights were done and Jon had washed, we went upstairs and I gave him a hot lather and shave.
Next it was some more games and a bit of a kung-fu film.
We then went for dinner at a local pub. Jon had a burger and I had a mixed grill. We had my cheesecake for pudding at Jon’s mother’s house.
Ingredients for the cheese:
-600g cream cheese
-100ml double cream
Ingredients for the base
-200g spelt flour
-100g white flour
-25g plain butter
-25g soft brown/palm sugar
-large mixing bowl and fork
-small mixing bowl and spoon
-1 baking tray (preferably loose-base)
1: Mix the cream and sugar in the large bowl until smooth.
2: Whisk until smooth.
3: Mix the two flours in the small bowl with the butter and brown/palm sugar.
4: Grease the tray. Push the flour mix into the base until the base is covered and it fills out to the edges.
5: Preheat the oven to 160C.
6: Keeping the chocolate wrapped in the foil, smash it with a rolling pin or heavy knife until the pieces are all 1cm or under.
7: Sprinkle the chocolate over the base so it’s fairly evenly spread.
8: Put the base in the oven until the biscuit is cooked and the chocolate is fluid.
9: Spread the chocolate evenly over the base. Place the base in the fridge.
10: Once cold, spoon the cheese onto the base and smooth the top.
11: Make any designs you would like on the surface of the cake.
12: Use the raspberries and juice to complete your design.
After this Jon had to sort some work, so we missed out on movie night, but we’ll do that tonight!
Besides that, once Jon was home we had some wine and cuddled and talked before lights out.
