For the past few years K and I have watched Eurovision together if possible. Last year she was travelling but this time she was around and hosted the Eurovision dinner at her place.
We had a Poncha for apéritif. K discovered this traditional drink when she visited Madeira.
This year's line-up was not impressive... Usually I have at least two or three favourites but yesterday I only liked Australia's contribution, Don't Come Easy by Isaiah. Unfortunately he didn't win though as Portugal took home the prize with Amar Pelos Dois by Salvador Sobral. I think that it is the first time that they won the contest. The song is not too bad. It could be on a film soundtrack.
I know that it is a cheesy event but knowing that 200 million people all over the world are watching it, makes me feel a bit less embarrassed about it, haha. And as always, the show is best watched while checking Twitter (hashtag esc or eurovision) and reading everyone's snarky comments.
This is the dinner we had: courgette gazpacho with croutons.
The main course was my favourite: mac and cheese including potatoes and onions served with applesauce. It was sooo delicious!
For dessert K had made petit beurre cake with butter cream and a cup of tea.
Hopefully we will manage to watch next year's Eurovision together again. I'll be hosting then.
