Filed under: — Andy @ 4:02 am

For Melina’s 3rd birthday, both Suzuna and I made birthday cakes. She made a healthy macrobiotic strawberry cake, and I made a dairy-free American style strawberry cake. Melina just ate the strawberries off both cakes.

Thanksgiving 2017

Filed under: — Andy @ 3:48 am

Every year my Thanksgiving parties get better and better, or so I like to think so. Im getting better at cooking the Thanksgiving essentials and adding more variety every time. Yet again, I was too busy cooking, cutting, and talking to take many good pictures of the party.

Thanksgiving 2016

Filed under: — Andy @ 6:00 am

This year’s Thanksgiving was another success. There were lots of guests and great food. This year was even extra good as there is another American living in our house [Lisa] that is a very good chef who also made a bunch of dishes and desserts. My friend from work and his family also came this year to enjoy the party.

Halloween Party 2016

Filed under: — Andy @ 4:19 am

This years Halloween party was another success.
Everyone made an array of different Halloween themed foods. This year I made some ribs and sausage and arranged them to look like a person. It didn’t turn out as nicely as I would have liked it but they were very delicious.
