Last Friday my neighbour, Katia organized a birthday party for her 5 years old son in the garden of they’re Lake Garda apartment. As I promised to help, I prepared Cous-cous Spicy Green Thai Chicken and vegetables, Seafood Salad and Focaccia with cherry tomatoes.

Started my day as early as 8am, went to the Supermarket to get all the ingredients. Came back and started cooking. It was a hot day, I was sweating like crazy… as what the weather forecast predicted the heat waved came from Africa! Oh dear….

After all the cooking, sweating and getting pissed off with the kittens (as usual they are making a mess!!!) I finally got myself together and put on my party dress and my dancing shoes! I’m ready to PARTY!!!!!

The evening went well even though i don’t know all o the but i made some new friends. The whole evening the guests compliments my food especially the cous-cous. Me and my man had to leave the party a bit early as we had an early start the next day for Regatta.
