Week 20 2022 in Food Photos

Week 20 2022 did absolutely not go as planned. Both Paul and I got sick with Covid-19. So where last week we had a homecooked meal each day, we now only had 2 days with homecooked meals.

Week 20 2022


During the day I felt more and more sick and both Paul and I were too tired for cooking so we ordered from BurgerMe.

At the end of the afternoon I had a fever and was to sick to prepare dinner for us. Paul made fries and snacks for us in the deep-fryer. He also got vanilla vla with chocolate balls at the grocery store. A yummy dessert.

In the morning I tested positive on Covid-19. Paul practiced with Yuri for his traffic exam in the afternoon. Afterwards his foot hurt so much, that preparing a meal for us wasn’t an option. So we had fries and snacks again.

Paul went and got us pulled chicken buns and wraps from Huismeesters for lunch. In the evening Paul had a 3-course dinner in Breda with his colleagues. He had flammkuchen, tenderloin and an affogato. Yuri and I ordered pizza at Dominos. Yuri had the meatlover’s pizza and I a creamy bacon pizza.


Yuri had his traffic exam in the morning. They drive a fixed route on bike. We’ll get to hear later on if he has passed.

For lunch Paul prepared kolak pisang, a sweet soup, from the cookbook Indisch bakboek. Dinner was Weeknight Pad Thai from Bon Appetit! In the evening Paul had a sore throat.

Paul felt fine again in the morning. He went to Landwinkel Nieuw Slagmaat and got us some new farmer’s vanilla vla. He also bought cheese and cold meat for a charcutterieboard. In the afternoon Paul started to feel sick again, so making dinner wasn’t an option for him. We ordered sushi from Mr. Sushi Express.

Paul was sick all day. I luckily felt a lot better again. Yuri prepared caramelized onions and a patty melt from the cookbook Hamburgers for dinner.

So a week with way too much take out and deep-fried meals, but I was just too sick to cook.
