Dinner With the Zlewki's

We finally got invited to dinner. Our new friends, the Zlewki's invited us over to their home on the 3rd floor of this building for an official Polish meal. Ninety per cent of the people live in a building very similar to this one.

Maya, their 15 year old daughter was busy in the
kitchen when we arrived. She was the first child in
Poland who was born under the covenant.



Dinner was elegantly served in the dinning room/living room.







As you can see, there was no shortage of food. They served American food(salmon, rice and tossed salad), and Polish food (hamburgers, cucumber soup, beets, and mashed potatoes). It was delicious!






And what did I contribute? Brownies! They love the way Americans make brownies! It was a wonderful evening, we hope to return the favor by taking them to dinner soon. Food can cross cultural boundaries and make language differences barely noticeable. We adore our new Polish friends.
