This weekend was quite enjoyable- even if I didn't get to spend it cooking out, making festive desserts and watching fireworks.
Saturday we met our Korean friend A, one of her friends and two Belgian guys for dinner. We went to a place called Meat Home. It was very literally just that. For a little under $12 a person we experienced an all-you-can eat meat buffet. The meat sits out, uncooked buffet style and you pick out what you want and cook it yourselves at your table. We had beef and amazingly yummy pork and excellent sausages. We even ate dumplings stuffed with meat. There were also vegetables but they came fried. I ate something similar to corn fritters and random assortments of veggies all cut up and fried together. It was quite delicious. We ate for two hours!
After dinner we went down to the WABAR (which according to the sign stands for western ice bar-somebody messed up with that one) so that we could show the Belgian guys where they can get Belgian beer. We all hung out, drank, told jokes and laughed. It was so wonderful to be around a bunch of English speakers (I think the Belgians said they know 4 languages)--people who could understand sarcasm. You don't realize how much you miss it until you're around it again.
Sunday was the usual two small pizza's-pineapple for me, spicy taco for him. And lots of relaxing and resting from the night before.
I think next weekend the girls and I headed to the beach for the day!
What was your weekend like? Did you do anything exciting for the fourth?
