Christmas day with pancakes and waffles!
What better way to celebrate Christmas outside of the USA than with pancakes, waffles and Ikea meatballs. My California friend, Bruce, graciously invited us to his home to have a Christmas day lunch special. I offered to be a cook, so i showed up 2 hours early. About 5 of us, were scrambling around figuring out what to do, how to do it, messing up and doing it all over again. I also think there was plenty of Chef's "food tasting" going around. I think the first 5 pancakes made were devoured. Around noon, people started to pour in. By then we had a table of pancakes, waffles, sausages, meatballs, eggs, fruits, orange juice, milk...everything we missed from home. After that, me and a few others started a game of Monopoly. Bruce went into his room for some guitar hero and what not on his Wii. The rest just socialized around the dinner table. I brought my language partner, Joyce, with. I find it humorous to see her in such an odd "american" environment. I think she enjoys the difference though. So much fun! Can't wait for the next one Bruce, Thank you!
