Daan Miles B-day cake

Daan Miles' Bday was on October 28.

He is already 4 !! Wooow!! It felt like yesterday we saw him for the first time. Now we are buddy-buddy. I luv him so much and I can't wait to show him the world.

In school Juf Sonja is teaching the kids about halloween. So Daan Miles and I decided to make a cake in that theme. He just loved it. The day before they made pumpkin soup with spiders in school so we made a pumpkin soup with frog eyes hihihhii spooky adorable!

Rhodes across China

Have you seen this on tv? Well I did on njam. I'm actually not a big fan of all these cooking programs as trop est simplement trop. But I luved this one!! Truly! There's a chef (there's always a chef) with 2 pupils, a blonde one who speaks Chinese and a Chinese one who doesn't speak Chinese HA! And they cross the country looking for traditional recipes. And they certainly found some. Some are dating back from the forbidden city.

We started with dimsum. And those were really tasteful!! Yummie. For the main courses we took Peking duck, seafood and tofu in a clay pot, chicken with veggies, noodles chicken for the little one,...

The food was ok and a lot. We took a doggie-bag home for another meal or 2. (o; And it was around 170€ (oh my dog!)

But not like Thai or Indian or Malaysian food I'm not really fond of the Chinese cuisine apparently. There's something 'heavy' 'bout it. I don't know.

But I'll keep on trying as I believe in the traditional Chinese cuisine to prevent diseases or to heal from small inconveniences such as colds, diarrhea, fatigue, ...
