Last Sunday was a girlie day back home spent with my best friends Emma and Malin. Our male friend Linus also joined us for the first part which was lunch/brunch so he got to pretend to be a girl for the day.
Actually we are not the girliest of girls so the conversation involved golf, football and handball among other things so I don’t think Linus suffered too much.
After our lunch and a brisk walk in the cold, Linus left and us girls went back to Emma and chilled out.
Emma wanted pulled pork for supper so I prepared that before we went outside and it smelt really nice by the time we got back to her flat. We then cooked together to prepare the rest. I instructed Malin to make aioli and Emma did the salad and grated root veg for the slaw. We also made a big batch of guacamole to have with nachos. It was the first time I served pulled pork with pitta and aioli but I highly recommend it as it was a great combo.
After all that food we had to sit back on the sofa, continue chatting and keeping one eye on the Masters. It was a lovely day and I do hope we get the chance to have one again soon. It is not always easy for us to meet up as we live in different places (countries even) and work different hours. But when we do meet up we always have a great time!
