our long weekend

our friend sharron has been visiting us for a long weekend (i took friday and today off work so we could hang out together in vienna!). we've had lots of fun over the extended weekend doing lots of things.... including beers with friends at 1516 to celebrate st. patrick's day (we couldn't get into flanagans irish pub it was SO packed), yummy lunch and afternoon drinks at naschmarkt deli, burgers and beers at shebeen watching football, drinks at molly darcy's watching ireland beat england in the six nations rugby, dinner at aromat, sunday brunch at die wäscherei, wandering around the city, and lots more. hmmm.... i'm beginning to see a recurring theme here.... everything we did mostly involved drinking and eating in pubs/bars or restaurants! oohps (i blame the bad weather for making us take shelter inside!).

here are some pictures from our meal at the cute little cafe/restaurant aromat on saturday night...
the food was delicious as always! we all chose from the daily menu. my stuffed veal with roasted vegetables was so yummy (kev had the same) and so was sharron's herb gnocchi with two types of pesto. dessert was really good too.... citrus cheesecake and chocolate cake. lovely meal and great night.
i love the pottery wine coolers they have from england....'ideal for use at home or on safari' (i bet they come in really useful on safari in england. WHAT?!).


  1. Wow, sounds like some wonderful times full of good food. Then again, the meals you have always look so good:) Thanks for your sweet comment.
