Surf ‘n’ Turf

The first meal my husband ever cooked me was Surf ‘n’ Turf. I remember so clearly sitting on the bench top in his kitchen, I had met this man only 24 hours previously in the little town of Tea Gardens NSW, I had rung my mum back in the UK to give her his address! Well it was nearly like a blind date!! Brad was pottering away in the kitchen and then asked me “how do you like your steak cooked?” without thinking into my response, I replied “blue” to which Brad walked over to the cutlery drawer and handed me a knife and fork and told me to “go find a cow in a field” major LOL’s! I knew this man was a keeper 🙂
