Just Two of Us

A quiet thanksgiving dinner, but it was a good one. Instead of turkey a large chicken roasted.
Two types of mashed potatoes and a few sides. Cornbread stuffing was a big hit. We did not cook in the bird but just baked by itself. No butter added to any of these dishes, so really healthy vision compared to traditional dishes.
An Apple pie for dessert, which concluded our thanksgiving dinner which started at 2 pm.

Treated Myself

Flight back home for thanksgiving, I upgraded myself.
Nicer and newer seat, nice selection of wine and decent food.
Watched 3 movies without sleeping. Got another KLM house and now we have more than 20 houses, which we call a village.

Snack in Bed

I don't do this home, eating food in bed, but a different story at hotels.
Another piece of their cakes. I recognized that I have tried majority of their cakes by now. Tasty chestnuts cream with fresh cream. Nothing to complain.

City Walk

Surprisingly nice and mild weather in Brussels. Walked around the city, with some bus ride, to see if there is something new. More than 10 times this year alone so difficult to find something, but stores started their Christmas decorations.

Special Treatment

In Brussels for the weekend. Found that a bottle of wine and fruits delivered to the room. NICE!
The same room, a suite as usual. It is the biggest room at this hotel per hotel manager.

Beef Stew

Cooked yesterday and ate today. Better after some rest. Tomato based so lean even meat was tender.

Vegetables Dishes

Cooked several vegetable dishes for lunch. With some leftovers, simple yet festive lunch.
Greenwich CT for afternoon drive. One of the most expensive neighborhoods in US.

Gyoza Dinner

I had a discussion with my friend the other day if they cook together.... His answer was no and they don't make Gyoza by themselves but buy frozen ones. Not a case here. Not the best looking ones but pretty good taste.

EU Headquarter

I knew that my hotel is located right next to the EU, but never been inside.
Just bunch of buildings but this is EU headquarter.
I imagine during the week this has totally different people.
Kokuban for lunch. I think this is the best in Brussels even though it is located furthest.

Taxi ride from the hotel this morning was this BMW special edition for a loyal family. If I understood the driver correctly this car was actually used to transport the king. Here is the proof - crown mark.
On the way back my co-worker gave me a ride with his Tesla. Wow, never seen this big screen in a car. Quite and smooth ride.

Relaxing Sunday

Lazy Sunday by watching tv shows, The Good Wife, in the morning, and a few shoppings in the afternoon. The weather was milder than we anticipated, so a little hiking at near by park.
Curry dinner which freezes well for left overs. Oh because we don't put potate in it.

Lunch in a Big Pot

I wanted to consume all vegetables we bought for the weekend, so Chinese Don was our menu.
Minimum chicken with maximum vegetables. Not sure you can tell but this pot is 13 inches in diameter.

It's November

All fall to winter dishes in some sense. Enjoyed cooking more than eating, possible?
