Lucky me! Last week on Valentine’s day I’ve got the chance to attend the opening of a new hot spot: Abel’s Deli. It’s the new Italian from New York in Utrecht! How more diverse can you be?
A lovely blogger, Daphne from lagreenvie, has tagged me on the snack tag. What a good idea! Since it has been a long time that I post something about food. And post giving birth last august, I have enjoyed eating like never before! Even before pregnant. I do try to eat healthy because I breast feed, but once in a while, momma has to have some fun and eat her guilty pleasure! Here are my answers to the Snack Tag.
I have travelling genes from my dad. When he was still working for the Indonesian government, he travelled a lot. South Korea, Singapore, India, the Netherlands, you name it. One of the unforgettable experiences I have ever had when travelling with my parents, was the time when we were living in India for several months. Yes, I lived in India when I was 4,5 years old! Since that time I have always some kind of strange bond with that land.
Just like in other parts of the world where they celebrate Christmas, the Netherlands also celebrates it with two weeks school holiday and ends after New Year’s day (this year a week after New Year’s day). So what do you do, when you also have two weeks off from work, but your husband do not? There’s goes tropical island! Bye bye! So for us this year is staying-at-home kind of holiday. Desperate searching for activities for you and your kids? Well, you’re not alone, sister! But here’s what we have done so far this week.
So I have been to these places, where they have food, lots of food and everything related to food. The Netherlands seems to be craving for trendy food markets where you can sit back, relax and enjoy your food with your loved ones but without the fuss of being apt and elegant. Street food and healthy organic dishes have also become THE thing here. I know, for those of you in America, this is so yesterday, right?
