Tuesday Keith worked from home so we decided to walk to the Winkelcentrum Woensel for lunch and tried a new place (to us) called Lunchroom Fifty-One. I ordered tomato soup and grilled cheese and Keith got a club sandwich. We had a nice leisurely lunch (including a yummy cappuccino), before walking back home where I vegged on the couch and watched some American TV on Boxee. Here's some pics of our lunch:
|Round One: cappuccino and pretzel cookie : )|
|Round Two: tomatoensoep with bread and butter|

|My "grilled cheese" that wasn't s much grilled,|
but still pretty good with "jonge kaas" = young cheese
Lunch with Sam
Today was a fun day because I got to meet a friend for lunch -- Sam, from the 4th of July BBQ -- at the Winkelcentrum. Our plan was to eat lunch and then head to the fresh market that sets up in the parking lot of the winkelcentrum every Wednesday. We sat down at the outdoor patio at Queen Bee and talked for a long time about all kinds of stuff -- living in the NL, living in the States, our significant others, Liam's impending arrival, etc. Sam is also Cuban so we also reminisced about South Florida and family back home. : ) She is headed to Miami next week for two weeks, so I am super jealous about all the yummy food she will be eating!
After lunch we were leaving Queen Bee when an older Dutch woman stopped us to tell us her granddaughter lives in America (I guess she overheard us talking?). Turns out her daughter was there and spoke English really well -- they have been living in New York for a year now and were back visiting family this week. Another coincidence is that this woman happens to be a midwife, so we had a nice talk about giving birth in the Netherlands -- and she also knows a midwife at my midwifery and said that it was a really good practice, which made me feel great! : )

(39 weeks pregnant, 5 days to Liam's due date!)
T - 5 Days!
