This is what it looks like when I throw you a birthday lunch.

We had non-traditional bruschetta made with toasted french bread-stick with pesto, sauteed mushrooms, and shaved parmesan cheese (top right). Prosciutto ham and Old Amsterdam cheese sandwiches on heavy Dutch brown bread (top left). Mini bacon and brie frittatas (bottom centre). And double chocolate cupcake/muffins (centre top).

We began with T2 Blue Mountain, before moving on the T2 Very Berry for dessert!

Delicious! Even if I do say so myself! And even if I did set off the smoke detector at one point …

Also, I’ve asked to join an expats blog community to share my experiences with a wider audience. They have a wonderful network of writers and I can’t wait to be able to contribute my own little slice of the world! - Where Expats Blog

I’ll update with a link shortly if I get in!
