We decided while we were away to do as little cooking as possible, this we managed, we in fact did NO cooking what so ever!!We thought it was only right that we sampled the local fare, food and drink , to get into the full spirit of Christmas and of our holiday. There were plenty of bars and bistros, all serving a huge variety of food and drink and not a burger in sight!!
Here we are outside a very nice Brasserie, where we had just had lunch of Palma ham with melon followed by Belgium Brown beef stew in beer. It was really Delicious and filling. I was driving so I stuck to fizzy water, Sandra and Sue had a beer, which made them both rosy faced and giggly, seems that Belgium beer is far stronger than ours!!
It was very busy in Bruges so we had to pace ourselves and we stopped a couple of times to try out a few hot chocolates!
When we got back to Sunparks we went to the bar for a cocktail. They were making a big issue of serving cocktails, but in the end they were a bit of a cop out. We ordered four and were disappointed when all the bar man did was set up 4 glasses with ice and then opened some pre mixed bottles. Mine was OK, but Sue was convinced hers was off and that they were trying to kill her. It did have a strange smell, but I put that down to the closeness of Sandra's feet!
