"Traveling" through Europe during this cold, long- lasting winter has been a highlight for our family!
It all started way back in December when my friend made us a mouth watering, homemade lasagna (as in making the noodles from scratch - something I would never attempt!) Having a meal given to you is great, eating something so superb is even greater! This called for a celebration. We invited our newly married brother-in law & sister-in law over and we got carried away with an "Italiano Christmas."
That evening homemade flags and maps were hung up, Sicilian sparkling juice was poured and we dished up even more Italian food.
I printed up fun and interesting facts about Italy and we took turns reading about this scenic country. Who knew they had the most elevators in the world or that the chances of getting pick-pocketed were pretty good according to statistics?!
We had Italian music serenade us in the background.
This evening was so successful we needed to explore another country: England!
Fish & chips, coleslaw, English breakfast tea served in tea cups, warm scones topped with whipped cream and jam all made for a delicious meal! Our English neighbour loaned us flags and maps. Again we took turns reading our little slips of paper with fun and interesting facts about England. With the English music playing in the background, the atmosphere was "lovely."
Welcome to Poland!
We ate Polish candy straight from Poland. We learned in our fun and interesting facts that the candy section in the grocery stores is the biggest section of all. Our boys wanted to move there!
Next up...we are taking a break from Europe and heading to America, specifically the 1950s era to have a "Vintage Diner" themed supper. Burgers, soda, milkshakes, banana splits - here we come!
