Ta Ta For Now, Our New American Hero

My first memory of talking to this huge, strong, wholesome American was in church, asking him if he was a missionary. He has that clean cut look, the type that would appear in show like "Married to the Kellys", or "Everybody Loves Raymond", but not in "Friends" or "Sex and the City".

Anyway, his 3 year tenure in this country has finally come to an end, after several few false starts. (We had earlier on hosted a farewell for him a few months ago). Anyway, this time, it was more organised, with proper agenda, etc, and it was an added bonus that the Lees from Amherst were also in town.

Mushroom & Zuchinni Pie

Roast Leg of Lamb with rosemary, garlic and honey mustard glaze

Mango and Tomato Salsa For The Fajitas

Salad With quails eggs

Fajitas, with Roast Chicken, Avocado, Caramelised Onions, Sour Cream

Pasta With Deep Fried Aubergine

The Cookie Cutters I got from The Lees of Amherst

Signature Flourless Chocolate Cakes

Lemon Meringue Pie

Silicone Bakeware, given by Mr & Mrs Tiger Chin,
which I've been meaning to put up, but forgot earlier on.

Anyway, the night progressed fairly well, with light hearted banter, and a game on HOW WELL DO WE KNOW SF!! Planned by Mrs Lee, basically we were asked questions about him, with 3 multiple choice answers to choose from, and if we got it right, he gets to do something, and if we got it wrong, he gets something from us, as can be seen from the pic below, where all those below 35 had to give him a 1 minute massage.

We ended by praying for him, God Speed be on his way.

Well, we'll miss you, and I'm sure the kids will miss you loads, but I'm sure we'll meet again sometime soon, so take care, buddy, and see you soon.

GREAT pictures, wish we'd been able to make it. Btw your guests dun have short memories of the food - they just look forward to eating it again. I for instance like the quail's egg salad and will save 1/4 stomach space for them flourless choc cakes.
