friends & food

My friend Rosa had a going away lunch for me last Friday. She made traditional Peruvian food. She also invited some of her other friends. The countries involved in this lunch Peru, Cuba, Nicaragua and Vietnam. I think that when I'm done with this stint I should be a UN ambassador or help Hillary with the Secretary of state job. (congrats Hillary) 

cheese, olives and nuts spread with some kind of brandy drink - yes there was dancing after lunch - not to mention very fast speaking spanish. 

First course - potatoes, lettuce, eggs with a spicy cream sauce.

Jill, this is your last week so don't forget to go to the Grand'Place and stroke the arm of 't Serclaes under the arch. It guarantees that you'll will see Brussels again. It's worked for me, so far . . .

Bonjour Francoise, I have heard many stories of what stroking the arm ment and none of them mentioned returning to Brussels. We will add that to our list. Foxy touches the little mouse on the bottom - I heard that is for people who can not reach the arm. Of course everyone always looks at us strange when I make her paw touch it.
