We are waiting for the royal princesses: Jane, her husband Ed and her gorgeous son Milo, They are coming home for a visit, they have been everywhere, enjoying their journey during their holidays. It is time to come home now, and they are in Melbourne spending time with the sisters.
Belated happy birthday Jane, I am glad that you have been enjoying your holidays in New Zealand. Now you are spending time with your friends and family, it is going to be great fun and I am sure you are having a lovely catch up.
Cooking for the Princesses, cooking for the gods.
Birthday cake and goodies specially for you. Rose petal cake with custard and white chocolate filling is the birthday cake. And a large savoury brioche ( a bundle of joy) also chicken stuffed with egg and truffle, these dishes are going to be a treat for us all.
Filling up the cakes, into layers with custard and white chocolate.
Cleaning and cutting out the sinew is very important to get soft texture in the meat for pleasant eating.
The savoury brioche or the bundle of Joy, is stuffed brioche with egg and ragu, place in a large round tray for baking.
Preparation for the brioche was very involved, starting with making ragu, after that, the ragu is shaped into round balls and stuffed with soft boiled eggs. Keep them cold in the refrigerator. Stuff the brioche of each with the stuffed ragu, then place them on a lined baking tray to make a circle. When it’s baked it looks like a giant bundle.
The preparations were very useful, the food was served on the day she arrived, it was so good to see Jane’s family and her friend Lauren who drove them home. Thank you Lauren. The lunch with Lauren was good,we had golden rice/turmeric rice served with the precious stuffed chicken, salad, and the brioche, the birthday cake was the dessert.
More delicious food for Jane and her family. Milo loves his vegetables, he is not keen with the meat yet, but he loves his sweets, who would not. However more delicious food I did, and the everyone loved it.
Milo chocolate cake for dear Milo, traditional Australian roast leg of lamb to welcome home for Jane and family.
Milo loves his sweets, lucky that nana baked beautiful cakes for him.
Edwin is keen to take photos
More cooking before they were leaving. Georgie and Felix came by car to pick them up. It was good to see them, thank you Georgie and Felix. I was pleased serving them a vegetarian lunch, the menu is very simple but good. Mini spinach and cheese pies, Javanese resoles (pancake filled with vegetables ragu ) and leafy salad. Mini apple strudel, wedges chocolate cakes with meringue to close off the meal, and freshly brewed tea in a pot.
They were a lot of cooking, before she comes, and also when she was with us. The things I do for my family, particularly with Jane and her family as they don’t come home very often. I did make the best of it, and I am pleased that she had a good stay, Milo had a good time too so did his papa Ed. They enjoyed my cooking, our company and we had a lovely catch up. I did all of that because I wanted to, and I was able to do it and of course we love our children, we love Jane. She said that it was a gorgeous visit, short but sweet. Thank you Jane, until next time. Actually it was a surprise trip for them as Jane is expecting a baby girl (Ivy), and it’s due in February 2015, the surprise trip, indeed made us happy. We got to see Jane and the family, we had a great time. Love you All!
Georgie and Felix, took our Jane and her family to the hotel in Melbourne. And the following day they are meeting with her sisters again, and Milo was happy to see his cousins for the third time. They left for the Netherlands by Singapore airline on the 16 of November. Wishing you all to have a pleasant journey and a good flight and happy landing. God Bless You all.
It’s all about having the family home, caring for them, having a good time with them, and serving home cooking for them, and this occasion is for Jane. It was good to have you and your precious family home. Jane always looks happy and petty, and with her pregnancy she even looks more beautiful.
The good news: I am happy and pleased to know that Jane and her family had arrived in the Netherlands safely. Milo is very happy to find his books, other toys and now he can sleep on his bed in his own room. Milo is such a happy little boy, we got to know him better now. We miss you, we love you Milo. To you Jane, Have a good rest. xx
