smelled so good

Who says you can't have fun and learn something new at the same time?

Last night a dear colleague of mine had her annual summer party. You know, she of cantuccini and rasberry parfait fame.

As centrepiece of her buffet, she had a whole gyros skewer. A whole, life-size one for seventy people. So awesome!

(Not me, nor the actual skewers. As I didn't have my camara with me, this picture is curtesy of wikimedia commons, just to get an idea of what I am talking about.)

And best thing, I even got a go at trying to cut the meat properly! I can now honestly say that it takes a lot of practise to get thin slices off that huge beast, but it was great fun, very tasty, hot and smelled soooo good...

Now this makes for a very nice memory.
