Belgian waffles and zucchini noodles.

While Reed was here we took the opportunity to barbeque with our American friends. I especially love this picture because the bucket of grilled meat in the center of the table reminds me of a typical dinner at the Sandoz household. I've said it before, but Sandoz men sure can grill.

We also took advantage of the carnival down the street and introduced Reed to Belgian waffles. Of course, Clay couldn't let him eat one alone.

Waffles here are incredible, especially if you can find then hot off the griddle. They treat them like sundaes, covering them with whipped cream, ice cream, fruit, syrups, and pretty much anything you can imagine. I am glad that the carnival is only here 2 weeks, otherwise Clay might be in serious trouble :)

Ok, this next picture is to commemorate the best carnival game ever. The plexi-glass maze. I laughed so hard I almost cried watching Clay and Reed make their ways through the maze. They were running into walls all over the place. It was hilarious.

When it was time to head to Brussels to catch his flight, we accompanied him to show him some sites. Brussels hasn't gotten old to us yet. It is so beautiful and old.

And, another dinner picture, because it represents us well. Me with my zucchini noodles and Clay with his pasta and bread. And the laptop in the background which will soon be playing some fabulous show to entertain us during dinner. Sigh. Such is life.

(P.S. YES, you can make noodles out of zucchini. You just peel one zucchini, and then continue to peel it with a vegetable peeler until you reach the seeds. Sprinkle the zucchini flesh shavings with salt and let sit for a little while. Blot them dry, and you can either serve them this way or some websites say to pan fry them a little. I just eat them raw. You know what? They aren't half bad. Not as good as pasta, mind you. But not a shabby substitute. Hooray!)
