birthday dinner at mums.

After a few hours in the car, we arrived at Matt and Val's house in Eaton, which is a suburb of Bunbury.

This was the first time I had been to visit and I was pretty excited to check out their veggie garden that I had heard so much about.

They grow almost everything you can think of! Potatoes. Beans. Corn. Herbs. Apples. Lemons. Tomatoes. Passion Fruit. And probably heaps more I just can't think of right now.

It was pretty impressive I tell you!

And the best part about visiting your mom's house... looking through all of your old "treasures" that she has kept since you were a child. Funny how mum's keep all of those things.

That night Andrew volunteered (okay maybe we volunteered him) to cook dinner. He is a really great cook and made us an amazing chicken dinner with HOMEMADE stuffing and the most yummy garlic and rosemary potatoes.... Umm ummm!

We might have underestimated the amount of work this meal required so all of the boys chipped in and helped. I, on the other hand, stood around and watched. It was fun, hehe.

Yes, the potatoes had this much garlic in them. I seriously LOVE garlic!

4 hours and one fairly bad burn later (poor chef Andrew), Val's birthday dinner was on the table... and it was worth the wait.
