The Most Awesome Granny In The World
So S’s Granny turned 105 years young on this day. Yes you’ve read that right. 105 years! Eye sight is fading, you have to raise your voice a lot when you speak to her so that she can hear you properly, but other than that she’s in great health. Despite breaking her hip in her late 90s, as well as her right arm and despite surviving a heart attack. She’s a phenomenon for sure!
But she’s not the eldest citizen in town. Two other women – aged 107 and 108 – are even older. Both live in a nursing home though, while our Granny still lives in her apartment (in the same house like her son who of course checks on her very regularly).
Hope she can celebrate many many returns!
Granny wanted a proper goose dinner for her birthday. And so Granny GOT a goose dinner. Not home-cooked – none of us would be even halfway able to cook a goose the way it has to be cooked – but we ordered it from a nearby restaurant. Done that several times before. The price is decent and the food tastes DELICIOUS!!! Wouldn’t be able to taste better if home-cooked, I’m very sure.
We don’t order a complete bird anymore though, because it’s just simply TOO MUCH. 6 thights for 4 people is definitely enough. It comes with red cabbage (my fave!!) and brussels sprouts (S’s fave), with two different kind of dumplings, gravy and two baked apples filled with marzipan for dessert.
