DH cooked the main course, a spicy minced pork and rice recipe.
It might be a special meal-for-two but there's no need to go mad on the expense; all the ingredients except the double cream for the trifle came from my stockpile. The cream was a large carton from Aldi for 85p. We were going to go the whole hog and have candles on the table but I don't have any fancy ones, so that will have to wait for next time when I've had a chance to take a look in Poundland. Of course, it would have been more romantic if DH hadn't gone crazy with the chilli powder. I like hot spicy food, but snotty nose and runny eyes is not a sexy look on anyone. It was pretty delicious, though.
We've actually had mostly dry weather today. Although it was drizzling when I popped round Aldi about 9.30 it cleared up and was quite nice. The wind has really picked up this evening and its supposed to rain overnight...no surprise there! Tomorrow's supposed to be showery but with some dry spells. I know, despite the winds and rain, we're lucky down here in Dover, and my heart really goes out to everyone coping with terrible storms and flooding.
I've done quite a bit of knitting this afternoon and finished another sock. I need to get a move on and complete the pair by next Thursday so I can give them to DH for Valentine's on Friday. He loves the scarf I made for him for Xmas and says he thinks of me every time he wears it (he can be a soppy sod sometimes) so I'm hoping the socks will also be a welcome gift.
That's about it for today. Nothing much happening, but that's okay with me.
