International Food and Fun!

 International Food and Fun!

Last Friday was a F-U-N day for us! Where the hubby works they did a International Day fair type thing since they have people from all over Europe, US and Canada.  Most of the different countries did a booth where they showed different traditions, handed out information and most importantly FOOD!!  I love sampling food when we travel to different countries, so this was perfect as I am sure there will be a few countries that I will never make it too.

AMAZING Slovakian food!

It is so neat to see my kids speaking Polish to their friends. Never in my wildest dreams I would have ever thought this!

While living over here there are a few negatives but days like this is one of the perks of living in a foreign country and learning about different cultures.

Well it time to starting planning next years US booth.  When you think of the US what food comes to mind?
