The beautiful game...

Since my team were knocked out of the World Cup (Italy…group stages…enough said), I have been able to enjoy the tournament a lot more, as a neutral with no expectations. So this weekend has been fantastic, with all the skill, drama and goals every sports fan wants to see. The man is rooting for Germany (due to his heritage) so we decided to theme the day… Argentinean steak and my dad’s chimichurri recipe vs. kartoffelsalat (German potato salad) and a stein of their finest beer.

Well, the German’s thrashed Argentina, in their own ruthless way (how cute were Angela Merkel’s restrained goal celebrations?), so in celebration we dug out the German liquor we had in the back of the cupboard, from a trip to Bavaria 4 years ago. The bottle is just gorgeous, as were the contents! Pear drop flavour…yum!
