Again many more family stories... and again a wonderful meal.
This time tho it was much more traditional Belgian fare that included shrimps, steak and frites, des moules (mussels)and for my aunt, Anguilles au vert (eels in green sauce).
For dessert (no pictures as again between the great wine and food we forgot!) was homemade speculos ice cream as well as homemade mocha/coffee ice cream (that my mother had in a large sundae with whipped cream, caramel sauce and nuts!) to top off a wonderful meal.
Afterwards we managed to waddle home - after a THREE hour meal- to take a little rest ... only then to eat a "light" supper of yet other marvels of Belgium... 6 different cheeses, thin slices of beautiful ham both off the bone and special ham from the Ardennes. There was also a mouthful of lovely pâté d'campagne.
Sigh. I will so miss Brussels... for sure I will miss my family - but Oh my, will I miss the food!!
