Wine and Wii. No, not wee.

With the temperatures soaring over 33C/93F we decided we're not going to take any seaside adventures this weekend. Plus holidays are starting all over Europe and - of nobody else - German are going to invade Southern Europe, particularly The Mediterranean, again and I really feel like dragging my arse in long hot, slow queues. And my week was mad long and crazy with yet another little childish act from Slovenian politcs. So, weekend at home it is, shades are down, Billie Holiday is doing her sfuff, I am catching up with LJ and here's another post from me in the same day - a rarity these days. :)


We had a Wine/Wii afternoon/evening yesterday. Just Igor, Robert and me. My muscles are really sore today from all that wiing. I am such a pussy. LOL



Can you imagine it lasted that long, Connor ubermunkey ?


I even cooked. Vegetables/prawn risotto the way I do it. Prepare everything separately and then mix it together.


My personal king of all wines. Period. :)


I even baked. Ok, this one came in the house rather frozen. LOL


In the heat of the game. :)

Finally, food pics that don't look disgusting. The champus one especially...yum!! Love good champus!

Wine, food, friends and Billie Holiday...you've got it all!

hahahahahahah do food pics look disgusting? :)

Champus was really good. And Billie was just the music of the day. And Friends are a bliss.

And you have a fine day, mister!

yeah, why bother with the crowds at the beach, especially when those krauts are all over the place... LOL... Better stay in the Slovenian mountains and play Wii with your friends... :-)

Yes, I think we opted for something better, even if we didn't go up in the mountains. :)

That looks like a really lovely evening with some REALLY lovely company. Never have thought of trying risotto that way, but would have had to leave out the prawns unfortunately since I am allergic.

93 F is hot there??

Ok...we'd leave prawns out, but, yes, that's the way I make risotto. All ingredients keep their taste. I prefer it that way.

Well, my bf and my brother are always lovely. :)

93... is hot, yes.

Sorry - that was the Texan who is unsympathetic to cries of "It's HOT!" from other parts of the world. 93 would be a relatively mild summer day here unless the humidity is really high as well...

Looks like a recipe for a wonderful day of relaxation. Your food looks nice even if I don't eat seafood. I think I would like an episode of "Let's speak Slovenian" where you are cooking, though perhaps it would be more Nigella Lawson than Julia Child.

cheers!

Weekend was pretty low key, but oh so wonderful. I could prepare a nice vegetables risotto for you, don't worry. :)

Well, since I don't like to cook.... maybe I should try some other lesson. LOL

And we had another rainy day, thunderstorm and all. It was almost evening when it stopped raining and we saw some sun. :)

LOL Iggy and Robert look like happy children in that photo... and Iggy is so terribly concentrated!

And it's still hot here. Might climb up to 37C in the coming days, which is stuff we're not really used to.

Yes, they were playing hard! :)

Woohoo n some hot tennis. Ni can tell by the looks on thier faces.

No I can't believe it lasted that long. Lol.
paterson_si
Jul. 14th, 2010 07:39 am (UTC)
Yes, they were totally in the game.

Yes, it lasted that long, because I was enjoying that Aperol Spritz most of the time and I used Slovene or Italian bubbles. Veuve was waiting to be enjoyed as it is. :)))))

Many bottles were uncorked before that one, trust me. LOL
