Last night was Birgitte's dinner party at Jon K.'s house. The whole set of photos is up on both FaceBook and Flickr, so here's small selection.
A lot of people brought food; Miriam had made a few delicious quiches and Mic had baked two apple pies. Marina had made two type of chicken legs, tandoori and hot chilli as well as a spinach and feta pie; all very good. Jon had produced his famous chilli chips. I ate too much of it all…
Somebody had brought chocolates in two varieties: chocolate covered almonds and chocolate covered liquorice. When I presented Collins one of the liquorice chocolates I thought he would explode; he took a bite, looked horrified and said "you could have warned me it had liquorice inside!" He then ran to the toilet.
There was good variety in booze, too. I made a discovery: A while ago I met with Collins and Nantko in Cafe Eijlders on Leidseplein. They had only one Irish whiskey there, a Bushmills, but I couldn't see clearly what type of Bushmills it was. I liked the taste of it, though, and tried the better Bushmills in Mulligans. They weren't the one. Now Danny had brought a bottle of the normal, run of the mill Bushmills White Label. That was the one I'd been looking for. I have a cheap taste, obviously.
Dick, Mic and Sass had brought their guitars. Even Birgitte tried her hand at playing, even though she hadn't done so in a long time.
Everybody had brought cameras, so there were a lot of people making photos of people making photos…
All in all a very enjoyable evening with a group of good friends.
