Hylke's 65th

Cake- modelled on the ANRO asia, a container ship on which Hylke sailed on long ago... I like the water flurry in the wake of the boat the best!

Food-I've never made such neat and tidy nigiri sushi before!

Late edit: Yes there were people at the party, not just food!

What we've been eating

With the winter dragging on, it was time for comfort food. There was mushroom soup with cauliflower and chicken (take packet mushroom soup and cook with cauliflower and chicken, voila...), I discovered beans, connected with my inner-dutch-wife and made Brabantse sausage rolls (good food for sick kids) and...sausage pizza (take 1/2 can of pizza, lay on pizza, top with mozarella and bake. eat.)

Who on earth decided that Twinkle Twinkle, ABCDEFG..., Baa baa black sheep should all have the same tune? Anyway, kaemon does his mixing and performs his own arrangement of it in the footsteps of Mozart who wrote 12 variations on the theme. The gassy noise in the background is backing percussion by Nelson (vocal talent). I realise the folly of mentioning Mozart and Kaemon in one sentence, Mozart wrote the variations at 25, and kaemon is only 2.
