Today we had a coffee morning to welcome the new moms (and a dad ! ) of our little ones who just started Reception!
It was a lovely morning meeting all of the parents whose kids you hear about at the dinner table.
It was not at my house, but I did a table to set the scene for our meeting and had the opportunity to get some input on Party Planning Ideas I have. We had a nice discussion following.
Nicole has big windows opening up to her beautiful garden … bringing the inside in…. so I used that as my inspiration to decide on which theme to go with for today’s table.
Country flowers and red gingham had mainly set the tone as the rest of the colours were more subtle – pale blue and soft yellow with a little bit of Mother Earth brought in via some chocolate brownies and cut grass.
My friend gave me a recipe for this dip that you serve with freshly cut, crispy, cold apples…. so I share:
There was no time making cake pops this time, so my daughter just prepared a few lollipops that the moms could take home for their kids !
Perfection was not really the objective here, but they still looked very festive!
No one really feels like cooking dinner after you have had a morning full of treats and nibbles…and did I mention that I never stopped eating the caramel -peanut apple dip?!
So, I called “CHICKEN GUY”…. have no idea what his name is…but he sells rotisserie chickens and delivers them at home with his scooter.
And he has been my hero a few times when I had to call him from the car to make sure dinner is on the table on time !
If you live in Seongbuk-dong, Seoul… I share with you his number. It is perfect for those days you are in no mood for cooking – 02-7669192.
You just call him… ask “is this chicken guy”…he says “yes”… you say ” i want chicken”… he says “okay…you say “address…..”…. he says “6.pm” or whatever – (that would be the time he would be at your house)….you hang up… you wait…6 pm the doorbell rings… chicken guy is at the door…and you have a lovely dinner if you just throw in the vegetables or simply add a French baguette. Have your 11 ooo won per chicken ready – I usually order two, they are not big.
Try him next time – it works wonders for a weary mom who can not order too many things over the phone with her non-existent Korean language skills !
Best times to call is around 5pm, and he will deliver the freshest chicken as soon as ready. Tonight I called 6 pm and had delivery 6.40 pm.
Well, I hope you had a lovely day too. I am off to bed now.
