Today is the day before my birthday, always known by me as my ‘Pre-Birthday’. At the supermarket yesterday, I bought a ‘special meal’ as a pre-birthday treat. A ready-to-cook pork belly with honey glaze complete meal, with black pudding, vegetables, and mashed potato. Enough for two, in ‘gift-box’ packaging.
So it is a ‘bung-it-in-the-oven-and-no preparation’ dinner, quick to cook when we return from the Bird Park later. (Weather permitting.) I will accompany that with a glass or two of Lindemann’s Australian Shiraz, then relax and watch something on TV later.
Three birthday cards have arrived already, along with a ‘mystery parcel’. Being a stickler for such things, nothing will be opened until tomorrow morning.
Getting a head start on your birthday is to be recommended, believe me. If you have never had a ‘Pre-Birthday Day’, you should try it.
