Music to my ears..

Yesterday my youngest son said something to me that was "music to my ears"..

"Mum, I'll cook dinner tonight.."

Well he didn't have to say that twice..

He's just about to turn 13 and it wouldn't have mattered if he"d served up bread and butter, I was over the MOON!!!

He excelled himself..

Homemade hamburgers from scratch with a side serving of potato gems..

He toasted the buns and laid the cheese..

Made the patties from scratch and cooked them himself..

Sliced the tomato and sprinkled with pepper..

A drizzling of sauce..


It tasted great..

(I didn't have the potato gems I was saving myself for a chocolate biscuit with a cup of tea later on.)

This is how everyones plate ended up..

I got to do the washing up, but I did it with a big smile on my face..xx
