Birthday of MonlingJanuary 19, 2008
My wife had her birthday today. She got her presents (enough cosmetics to start a small drugstore) last week already so I just got up at 9:00am this morning, went to the bakery, bought fresh bread, ‘butter cookies’ and some pastries for breakfast. We had a pretty easy going day and went to Haarlem (less than 30 minutes by train from our home) for dinner in a restaurant called “ML” (http://www.restaurant-ml.nl/).
We had a splendid evening while savouring the many courses that one after another were taken to our table: 2 amuses, 3 first courses, a main course, a collection of deserts and a kind of spoom. Wonderful food cooked to perfection with a grand dose of creativity. It took us more than three and a half hours to finish it and we loved every minute.
