MMMM delicious!

Do you remember these pretty little birds i showed you the other day? They're french partridges, and yesterday they went from this......

.....To this!!!!!!!! Ta da!
After spending the afternoon with Mr P senior at the big farm(as we shall call it, just so you dont think i mean our farm) learning how to dress pheasant and partridge, he kindly gave me two brids and some pheasant breast to bring home for tea!
I decided to stuff the birds with some bramley apples id collected a while ago from the big farm, as well as some sage and garlic. I then wrapped the birds tightly in bacon and baked for 25 mins. When the birds were almost cooked i removed the bacon and added it to some red onions and garlic id already fried. The birds went back into the oven to brown off. And i make a lovely gravy with a chicken stock cube the bacon ,and other bits. All served with garlic mash and peas....it was so tasty.
To say Mr P was impressed must be an understatement as i even got a call at work from Mr P senior today to say that Mr P had been singing my praises for the amazing dinner, at coffee this morning! Now, i dont want to sound like im blowing my own trumpet, but im really really proud of myself, i took so much please in cooking something completely new to me that i think everyine should try it every so often. Im also happy that my man was proud of me!
