Eating around the World...

Otherwise known to us as WorldFest.

Yesterday, Sunday, was the annual WorldFest at the girls school. We had a good time. It was the best one we've attended.

We actually skipped last year's as we didn't want to deal with the crowds and what in the past had been a free-for-all inflatables set-up. Since we don't know whether this would be our last year or not, we decided we had to go.

There are food booths from the various countries represented throught the student body, entertainment and, of course, the inflatables play area for the younger kids.

It's hard to go by all the booths and not buy something from every country but the stomach is only so big. Let's see if I can catch most of the countries that were offering goodies:

Sweden, Holland, Belgium, Ireland, Scotland, G.Britain, Argentina, Mexico, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Israel, MiddleEast, Carribean, Japan, Southeast Asia, Russia, India, Australia, Austria and the United States.

There might have been more but I can't remember. Examples of food offered were Paella (Spain), Falafal's (Israel), Sushi (Japan), Baba Ganouche (MiddleEast), Haggis (Scotland), Shrimp (Aussie's), Hot Dogs & Choc. Chip cookies (USA). Bart and I both gave a huge thumb's up to the Paella - excellent. We skipped the Haggis - figuring we'd then have to buy a shot of the Whiskey to wash it down - we didn't want either.

So we did our best to eat as much as we could - it was all excellent. The girls played as hard as they could and had a great time.

FYI - we've already had our "Fall Back." So for this week, we are just 5 hrs ahead of East Coast, etc...

So how was your weekend? :)

Sounds like fun to me...the Californians are here and we are eating our way through DC & Northern VA, admiring the gorgeous trees and taking in all the museums they can handle! Update to Mt. Vernon..a must see!

Thanks for telling about your experiences.
Our weekend was good. SO good to be HOME as we have been gone 18 days this month.
Mom is still in the hospital. Not doing very good. She had an allergic reaction to some meds and will be in the hospital maybe another week? Appreciate your prayers.
