The first week of the new year, and week 1 2024 started good. The first day of 2024 was a Monday. So how did we start 2024? Read on to find out.
Week 1 2024
We started our day with bubbles and a breakfast buffet at our hotel, Fletcher Hotel De Vrije Teugel in Uden. We had a quiet day with lots of reading. For lunch we had erwtensoep at the restaurant in the hotel.
Later on in the afternoon Paul and I had a chai latte (Cosette) and stroopwafel latte (Paul) and bittergarnituur (small snacks).
Dinner was 2 courses at the restaurant in the hotel. It was delicious. We had a main and dessert, all 3 of us.
A good way to start the new year.
In the morning I made a stack of mini chocolate chip pancakes for Yuri and his friends for breakfast.
Dinner was broccoli soup and curry soup with almonds. The first recipe is from the cookbook Van Piepers tot Pasta, the second is from Blue Band Basiskookboek. A friend had dinner with us. He comes over almost every Wednesday evening.
I prepared such a delicious dinner for us this day, I have to share it with you on the blog. It was sauerkraut with goulash. A casserole dish and everything combined perfectly. The meat was so tender, just perfect.
Baked two cakes for my dad, an apple crumble pie and a cake with nuts and caramel. We took them with us on a weekend getaway. We went to Landal Mooi Zutendaal with my parents and my sister. My mom had made macaroni for dinner, that was always my favorite dinner growing up and I still love it.
We celebrated that my dad was turning 75 later that month, that’s why I baked two cakes. He loved both the cakes, so did the others, and they were gone by Sunday.
We started the day with breakfast together, with bread and buns. Then we played board games and read and talked together.
In the afternoon we had lunch at ‘t Zutendalertje, with Belgian cuisine. I had the vol-au-vent, which is a puff pastry cup with chicken ragout. It was delicious.
Dinner was bread and buns at the cottage.
We again had breakfast together with bread and buns. Lunch this day was buns with Frankfurters. Dinner was fries with a kaaskroket (cheese kroket) and other snacks. Then we went home again, after a fantastic family weekend.
So that was a week with two relaxed weekend getaways.
