Apologies for not updating much, I’ve just got back from Australia last week, mainly for my brother’s wedding. It was great! While I won’t blog too much about it, I will tell you some totally irrelevant stories.
Amel: Oma, here’s the pictures from the wedding. This is the wedding cheese.
Oma: This is the wedding cake?
Amel: No, Oma, it’s a wedding cheese tower. It’s basically a stack of different kinds of cheese.
Oma: Like a cheesecake?
Amel: Nonono, it’s cheese. Not cake.
Oma: *silence* I don’t get it…
Amel: So, instead of a cake, my bro & sis-in-law opted for cheese.
Oma: WEDDING, Y U HAS NO CAKE! How do u eat it? Isn’t it too salty?
Amel: White people just eat it as is, oma.
Oma: Then you pour some chocolate on it or something?
Amel: LOL! No, not like that!
(I excused myself, went to the fridge, grabbed some brie and old cheddar, some water crackers, put ’em on a plate.)
Amel: This is how they serve it. They cut the cheese, and eat it with crackers.
Oma: Then how do you eat this thing? You can’t even spread the cheese over the crackers?
Amel: You eat it just like that!
Oma: So you just bite into the crackers, and the cheese, at the same time?
I dunno but I just found it amusing that Oma found it amusing that people eat cheese and crackers at weddings! I guess Oma’s only familiar with sliced cheese (the one you use for sandwiches) and grated cheese! Anyway, have a gorgeous picture of the aforementioned cheese stack.
