I'm awake. It's 2:40 a.m. I really should go to sleep...
We were at a dinner party tonight at my brother-in-law's parent's house. "We" meaning my parents, my sister and her husband (obviously, they're his parents) and myself. There was soooooo much food!!!!!!!
For starters, when we walked through the door (after kissing everyone on both cheeks) we were served with dry fruit, nuts and aperitifs - chocolate and orange liqueur, Tequila, Bakardi and Jinn. Really nice. When we sat down to eat came food. A lot of food. Latkes (americans - like Hash-brown), fried fish, Hummus, two kinds of eggplant salad (greek and with mayonnaise), onion pie, mushroom pie, Pizza with cheese and olives, Pizza without cheese with vegetables (my dad doesn't eat dairy products almost completely), tomatoes salad, lettuce salad, salmon, pasta with pesto, tomato and cream sauce (three different sauces), three kinds of cheeses, roasted peppers, really good bread (I dipped it in the divine pesto sauce), not to mention the huge amount of booze pouring out of every bottle... Wine, so much wine...
For dessert - Pavlova (meringue base with whipped cream, strawberries and forest-fruit sauce), fresh fruit, chocolate mousse cake with meringue, Macaroon cookies (made from almonds... *Homer-like-chchchccchchchchchc*), cigar pastry stuffed with almonds, more
meringue cookies, coffee, tea and cognac....
I was very cheery, due to the wine and the company of the sister of my brother-in-law's brother-in-law (My sister Michali is married to Eyal, whose sister Orit is married to Yosi, whose sister is Orly, a really sweet girl we know from a long time ago since Yosi is one of my sister's best friends for years...) Never mind the relations, she is a great girl and we spent most of dinner talking to each-other (we sat together intentionally). I had fun, and ate too much, but ah, well.
When we got back my dad and I got into a long conversation about music and musical taste, and then my brother Udi came home and changed the channel from VH1 classic to extra-hot to watch Nip/Tuck, at said point I abandoned the living room (I'm not crazy about Nip/Tuck) and came to my room to document this evening.Now
I can go to sleep... Night!
