Fun with Food in Luxembourg and Belgium

We always like to share pictures of the very delicious and wide assortment of desserts that they have here. Here is a picture of my birthday cake this year. Unfortunately it isn't what Mark (his secretary) ordered, but he couldn't speak French well enough to convey this when he picked it up. The cake is actually a carnival cake, which is a celebration right before the beginning of lent. The children dress up in costumes and there are usually many parades throughout the cities and small towns.
The next picture is a picture of my dessert that we had when Mark and I actually went out for a nice dinner for my birthday. Sorry that it's not the clearest picture, that's what happens when you take it with a cell phone camera. I thought I was ordering something with banana's, but obviously my french needs some work because there were no banana's here!!!!! I wasn't quite sure what it was.

The last picture was taken when we went out to eat at a pizzeria in Bastogne Belgium. Yes- it is a pizza with french fries on top. They serve it with sides of ketchup and mayonnaise. It's actually very good, and yes we did know what we were ordering with this one. The Belgians do love their "pommes frites".
