I am finally back in Belgium! I haven't been here since this past January. (you can read about that trip on my older posts "Europe In 30 Days").
Why am I so excited? Because Belgium is where my honey lives, Stijn, and I haven't seen him since this past June/July when he was visiting me in Las Vegas.
And now the story begins on Oct 23 when I land in Brussels at 8:05am and we hit the ground running!
Stijn has a volleyball game on Saturday, so after freshening up we head out to Stijn's parents home which is in the beautiful countryside of West Flanders. Moorsele is a picturesque little village with grazing cows, farm fields and windmills.
While on our way we stop to take a walk through the streets of Lessines.
After we arrive and settle in Stijn asks if I thought it would be a good idea to go to France and pick up some groceries. Ummm, okay. France? Sure! So we get back in the car and within 2 minutes, I'm in France!
We are shopping at Auchan, the BIGGEST one-stop shopping center I have ever seen! Bigger than Super WalMart people!
Then to make it even more difficult, "Degustation Gratuite" (free samples) of more breads in the produce section.
Then there is the fresh seafood section filled with shrimp, crab, mussels and all different types of fish I have never seen or heard of before.
Maybe some Saucisson Cheval (horse sausage) would go great with my cheese and a bottle of red wine.
Just when I thought I couldn't be anymore overwhelmed by all of this fabulous food and wine, we come to the check out lanes. We are in check out lane #36 and looking to the left....
.....and then to the right.
Dinner was fabulous tonight of course!
Well all I can say is "Wow"! What a great way to spend my first day "Back In Belgium"
