Yesterday it was time for our birthday celebration of my hubby. We had invited the whole family to late lunch/early dinner at my parents place and the weather was very cooperative. Sunny and warm, around 27 degrees C. Perfect time to be by the water as its a little bit cooler there.
Hubby had decided to grill a whole rib eye (almost 2 kilos). He marinated/covered it with a herb coating and used basil, tarragon, oregano, flat leafed parsley, rosemary and thyme. We served the meat with a homemade potato salad plus a green salad.
For dessert I’d made cupcakes. I did two versions: one with licorice and a lemon and licorice topping and the other with crushed chocolate and a raspberry and sugar paste flower topping. Both versions turned out great! As hubby is a major licorice fan it was fun to make treat especially for him. I’m the chocolate lover! 😄
