1st guests - 37 and counting

No that is not 37 guests but 37 mosquito bites - 0h wait just found 2 more so 39 and counting! They are driving me mad! Apparently according to Linda Pratt - some of you may know her, she is married to NZer Tony, it takes 6 months and then you are no longer good food for the mozzies here. But if you go to another district they think - fresh blood, yay! So I can expect for the next month to be fast food  for the lovely little fellows!

So we had our first guests - a young couple serving in another part of the country and taking a little trip to look around. We served them dinner and breakfast this morning - I was so nervous as I had never charged any body for food before. On the menu last night was Amanda's awfully good Thai curry, rice, roasted potatoes and salad followed by Lime and Rum cake and yoghurt. Breakfast was a slice of watermelon, fresh juice, bread rolls and jam, coffee and vegetable omelette. Does that sound alright to you? 


 I have new respect for restaurants now - that is some stressful stuff making sure the food is presentable,delicious and on the table hot. Well they seemed to like it so lets hope they give the place a good review. I have decided I wouldn't be able to do this as a business though - I couldn't let them leave this morning without taking food for the bus so I would never make money, that's for sure. Heck, I didn't even like charging them for the room let alone the meals!

Hehe. I posted under Nicks account and did not think he would want that!! My comment was wish we were there to be your guests for a much needed rest as you guys would make the most amazing hosts ever. Your cooking has always been awesome so you have no worries at all.
