OH is in charge!

Look at this marvellous pudding!
I graduated as a psychotherapist and counsellor in May and have since taken up a post as a family counsellor. On my return from work the other evening my wonderful OH had dinner under control.
First course was his speciality of prawns in garlic, white wine and sour cream with a stick of crusty French bread to mop up the juices. He just gently fries the garlic and then slooshes in an appropriate amount of white wine which he lets reduce before adding the prawns and then stirs in the sour cream when the prawns are cooked. Seasoned with salt and pepper they're brought to the table in the pan and then we just dig in! Delicious! (It was so delicious that I forgot to take the photo!)
Pudding is the creation you see above. He took a couple of single serve pavlova cases and spooned in an equal mixture of softly whipped cream and thick greek yoghurt which was topped off with fresh strawberries, blueberries and gold kiwi fruit. I added the sprinkle of cocoa! It was truly wonderful and it was so nice not to have to cook dinner too!

Arrrhhhhh that is so sweet. He can come and cook for me (those prawns) when ever he fancies a drive up the freeway.
And the dessert looks yummy too.

How sweet of hubby!
I didn't know you were a counsellor, how interesting! I've always wanted to do counselling..

What a lovely hubby you have! I love prawns in garlic and wine (a popular tapas dish) and french bread is a must! ;o)

Sal, I'll give him the directions! The prawns are his signature dish and he does them every Christmas day!
Anna, I love counselling. Its a great job if a little demanding on the emotions at times but I wouldn't swap it now!
Maria, he's a real love and has repeated the pudding since.Yum!
