    enjoying a simple homecooked meal btwn friends

    by morgane1692 Written Jun 5, 2004
    look out! it's seabass! ;-P

    It just doesn't get any better than this. Seriously. The process is half the fun and beauty of it all too. Choosing and buying fresh ingredients in the local market. Standing around and watching in admiration as my dear friend prepared and cooked. One fantastic meal after another. Described as "simple" but they were truly anything but. Sorry, cher ami. All of this so very much bears repeating. ;-)))

    The indispensible Belgian waffle!

    hot waffles on a bittercold day, oh yesss!

    On a crazy-cold, wet and even snowy (well, it tried!) noontime along the Grand Place, these girls had the right idea: yummy hot waffles with powdered sugar! Messy, sure, but that's what the napkins were for. Mmmmm, you can smell the chocolate and sugar from here, can't you?

    Fries and Belgian Mayonaise

    The Belgians are kings when it comes to fries. Thick fries with that typical sour-ish, mustardy mayonaise. Just buy them in a shop sayin 'FRITUUR' or off a street stall. Yummy!

    No Brussels visit is complete without you having a WAFFEL.

    They come as plane waffels with some powder sugar or with all kind of tasty dressings.

    One more thing, make sure you try some Belgain chocolate. My girlfriend thought she died and went to heaven, when she tried their truffles.
