Refreshing...

The weekend is upon us and now I sit again at the computer. I have to say that the mussels were awesome and how Ingrid prepared them they were great. I guess when you boil mussels, the shell opens up and they are so easy to eat. I really enjoyed them.. We ate them with french fries and we had multiple pots to eat from. We actually to many that there were a good amount left.

My host mom had a long week and yesterday she said she wanted to go to the Pony Pub... a bar that was close to our house so I told her I would go with her. In the past she has said she wanted to go out but has decided not to as the time gets close, but tonight she still wanted to. My roommate decided that he did not want to go so I took Ingrid out. She loves to dance, but when we got to the bar there was no one dancing. Before I left I was talking to Jason Burch and told him that we were heading out and my host mom wanted to dance... his resposne was, "Oh No!". But in the end she got to dance not with me but with people that knew how to dance and we all had a good time. We came home and I had a great talk with her, we talked about life and it was a great experience to understand more about life here in Belgium. In the discussion we talked about what we needed for the picnic tomorrow to eat. I said that if I could get my roommate up that maybe we could get some things that Americans would bring to a picnic.. So any suggestions would help if you have any. My suggestion would be fried chicken, but I do not even know if they have that here. I am trying to think of what we would bring to a picnic but some help would be good... that means that I would enjoy some comments to this entry!....

Talk to everyone soon.

If you have chicken, you could always fry it yourself. That could be an adventure! I think of things like salads of macaroni and/or potatoes, sandwiches, and watermelon (or other fruit) when I think about picnics. But the best thing about a picnic is that you can take and eat anything!

Scotch-a-roos!

Yes mom, I like the idea but I do not have the same experience with making scotch-a-roos. They might not turn out so good and the peanut butter is weird here.
