Mummy LouLou's Birthday - Pic Heavy

Hi everyone, I am sorry it's a day later but I was really exhausted last night, but I promised you a few photos from my mums birthday. She had a lovely day which admittedly didn't start that well with a leak in the bathroom ceiling - yes another one this time the opposite side of the house - grr - Anyway the day rapidly improved we'll start off with a few pics of her pressies - everyone was super generous including moi :)I made her this card and got her loads of nice things

First of all I had some flowers delivered these are from Next x

I also got her this jewellery box from Urban Outfitters, she first saw these in The Pier ages ago but she never managed to get one :)

She also got this gorgeous blue faux snakeskin bag from Accessorize from my Godparents

and this gorgeous Pashmina from my Aunt and Uncle

She got loads of other stuff from me and other relatives including, jewellery, nightwear, Hotel Chocolate goodies, books, plants and more chocs.
I was so strange everyone appeared to be on holiday for my mums birthday this year so there was just the two of us - I decided to cook her a nice meal for her birthday with ultimately exhausted the hell out of me but she is so worth it- I say exhausted but it could have had something to do with several bottle of this -hmm

Anyways onto the meal first of all I made her a Mushroom Lasagna - It is the most amazing recipe ever and its one of my favourites - I got the recipe from here - I did tweak it slightly and used gluten free lasagna and a homemade gluten free bechamel sauce
Photobucket
I served it with a little side salad, with lettuce, cucumber, baby plum tomatoes, radishes, avocado and spring onions

For pudding I decided to include one of my mums favourite things white chocolate !!! I decided to use this recipe from the lovely Lollipop Loves - Raspberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake - Again I tweaked it a little - using gluten free digestives for the base, and using raspberries and blueberries as well as Philadelphia for the filling

I have to say a huge thank you to Laura - this was such a hit and tasted amazing I will definitely be making this again, and again, and again :)
Finally a picture of the birthday girl - I have to say she hates this pic but it shows her and my cheesecake - belated Happy Birthday Mam xxx
