Hubby and I had our first official dinner guests at our new place last Saturday.
We invited A. & K and their little son to our place for some East-meets-West raclette. You know how sometimes you think your place is still not "done up enough" to have guests, but you just simply need to start the ball rolling of inviting friends over because you miss meeting up with them and its been ages since you've last seen each other?
That was what happened last Saturday. :) It was a spontaneous thing and oh boy, were we so glad that we invited them over! A. is the only person I still keep in touch with from my German school at IFA. I'm so thankful that she's still in Stuttgart because at the beginning they weren't sure if they were going to relocate to another country.
We had lots of wine, great food, their little boy is so adorable and he had so much fun playing with our DVDs (ie. messing up the order of Stephan's carefully-arranged DVDs). hahah. He's only 1 yr old so we decided to meet up earlier (about 6pm) because I wasn't sure if they had to leave early. Turned out, they stayed until 11pm and their little boy was sooo bright and cheery even at such a late hour!
Raclette is the easiest thing to prepare. We cut some peppers, got a selection of meats (ham, salami, bacon), pineapple, French Raclette cheese, mushrooms, pork, giant prawns etc. I asked A. to make some Korean beef and oh boy, it was dripping with such a delish garlic sauce!!! We ate up everything you see on these photos!
