Friday 15th –
A dark, dreary day indeed.🌧
Packing and preparations were started and finished for the next mornings trip to Croatia 🎒👜🌊
Mom made some creamy asparagus soup for lunch using the packaged flavouring she had found at the ‘Salland Tuin’, the local vegetable store nearby . 🍵
We enjoyed it and added some crackers and cheese to top it off 😊
(She took the photo 🙂 ⬆️)
Mike had left the cottage early that morning for an appointment in Germany and we didn’t see him back at the cottage till 3:00.
He brought back some poppy-seed cheese bread 😍
Aunty Yvonne had given the invitation earlier in the week to come over for tea and cookies as she wanted to meet mom and dad ☕️🍪
Pleasantries were exchanged and they were finally able to put faces to whom they had heard about.
Dad and Mike went to get the Barbershop (turkish-ish dish with fries, meat, lettuce and a few other toppings) we had hoped to eat the day before.
It was brought back for supper and enjoyed by all.
Another food off the ‘parents must try’ list.
I’d heated up a pizza incase we didn’t have enough with just the Turkish thing, but we had plenty.
Mike and dad ate the pizza for an evening snack 😏🍕
Mom and I enjoyed the pomegranate she had prepped earlier that day 😍
So much more enjoyment in eating that specific fruit when it’s not you who had to get all the seeds out.
After the evening snacks were enjoyed a fairly early bedtime was called for since we had to be getting up by to leave by 5:30 the next morning.⏰
