Today was the in-laws, Chris and Chris, 45th wedding anniversary. Given that they also have their birthdays over the coming few days as well - Christine's being August 27th and Chris' being September 4th - the family held a party at their house to celebrate all three events.
We had about a 50% success rate, with Linda and her family not able to make the journey down from Brisbane, Phil and his family all falling sick to the dreaded lurgy and sensibly calling off their trip, and Joel only bringing himself down from Killara.
Helen spent much of yesterday afternoon cooking the various cakes and slices for the event, making cupcakes for the birthdays, as well as her Golden Slice and Maria's chocolate brownie recipe. Good job Helen, one of your best.
I has spent a good portion of yesterday evening, and then some more of this morning, in preparing the meal for the day. This consisted of chicken wings for starters, some plain herbed wings for the kids and some chilli, ginger and lime wings for the adults, from a recipe Dad had lent me. Then there was Malaysian Chicken Curry Noodle Soup for next course (and I made sure it had a fair bite to it on this occasion). This was followed by beef mussaman curry and rice, with fried rice for the kids. I enjoy cooking, but sometimes it's the time consumption that can be a bit tiresome. It's all worth it in the long run, especially if I've done it right, which I think I had on this occasion.
So all in all, a good afternoon was had by all, and the birthday oldies got to blow out their candles as well.
