Garden lunch party with neighbors...

Did a check on the history of this blog and found out that today is actually the 8th anniversary of my blog...

Hosted a garden lunch party for fifteen of our neighbors last Saturday...
That was the fourth straight year that we had been hosting this event...
Hamburgers are not really in my normal 'to-eat' list of stuff...
But this one was pretty good, I must admit...
One of our neighbors made it for the party and hmmm, my missus was surprised upon seeing my munching on that plate...
Bologna sausage, and smoked salmon... specially ordered from Kobe by another neighbor...
Good stuff...
We were very happy to welcome the presence of the parents of one of our neighbors...
They stay in another city and came all the way to join us...
Last year, only the mother came, but this year, the father came along too...
And the maze-gohan onigiri (mixed rice ball?) made by the mother... wooh, full of ingredients and goodies...
Meanwhile, the daughter herself, who is our neighbor, made this walnut-banana cake...
Urmmm, very good texture and taste...
Yet another neighbor, for the last three years or so, presented us with this made-from-scratch soba noodles...
It was just 'straight' soba... unpretentious, and to the point... very wholesome stuff...
With all these good stuff to enjoy, am sure looking forward to hosting our neighbors again next autumn...
