Week 3 2023 in Food Photos

Week 3 2023 was another quiet week, just like the weeks before. The week ended with a bit of snow, a sleepover for Yuri, movie night and a fancy lunch on Sunday.

Work and school all day; we ended up having fries and snacks for dinner. Paul prepared them in the frying pan.


Another non-cooking day for me. We had leftovers for dinner. The day was business as usual again, with Yuri at school, me working from home and Paul at the office.

We had a Summery vegetable stew in the middle of Winter. The recipe is from the cookbook De Bijbel van de Turkse Keuken (The Bible of the Turkish Kitchen) and was delicious. The first day this week that I prepared dinner for us.

My birthday was in December, but I got my gift from Paul in January. We went for lunch at De Watertoren. It’s a restaurant housed in the top of a former water tower. We had a 4-course lunch and perfect views on Utrecht. The portions were small, but of excellent quality and well prepared. All courses were delicious and I even had a glass of champagne.

At the end of the afternoon Paul picked up Yuri from his sleepover. Dinner was salted caramel pancakes and a bun with a Frankfurter.

So that was a week in which I only prepared one weeknight meal. Oops. Better luck next week.
