Week 34 2022 was a mix of simple homecooked meals and take out. We also had a party at the end of the week and Yuri started high school.
Week 34 2022
Yuri started with high school this week, however the first two days he was free. Paul prepared a simple meal for us of white beans in tomato sauce, pasta, cheese sauce and a mushroomburger.
We had lunch from Huismeesters. Paul and Yuri had a pulled chicken bun and I a sellerie salad bun. My new favorite bun to order at them. Yuri baked pancakes for dinner. He made pancakes with cheese, bacon and banana. Here’s by the way a blog with 100+ Pancake Ideas.
Yuri had his first day of high school. So off he went on his bike. Not a 5-minute bike ride anymore, like before, but a 30-minute bike ride. When he was home again, it turned out that he still missed some school supplies. So we went to the city center and got these things. We also took home with us KFC for dinner and donuts from Dunkin’ Donuts.
In the morning I got a jar of laurel leaves from work. It came from the garden at their house in France. Yuri prepared instant noodles for his lunch after school. We had gotten them the day before at the Oriental XL supermarket.
Dinner was rice, vegetarian satay schnitzel, brown beans and mayonnaise, prepared by Paul.
Since we would have a party on Saturday, I prepared macarons, cupcakes and a cake on Friday. I made lemon macarons from my Macarons cookbook, a caramel cheesecake from Modern Baking from Donna Hay and banana cupcakes from Cupcake Heaven magazine.
Since the kitchen was taken up with baking goods we had lunch from Huismeesters. Paul had a pulled chicken bun and I a sellerie salad bun. We ordered dinner from BurgerMe.
In the morning I further prepared dips and salads for the party. I prepared smoked mackerel dip and avocado cream from the cookbook Heerlijke Spreads. Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip from Buns In My Oven. Lemon butter, tricolore pasta salad and a tomato mango salsa.
In the afternoon and evening we celebrated Paul’s birthday with family and friends in our garden. Paul’s birthday is in the beginning of August, but we’re almost always on vacation around that time. My mom also brought with her a chicken curry casserole with cherries. Paul always loves that casserole. The Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip and Caramel Cheesecake where the favorites at the party.
A quiet day on which Paul and I went to Katwijk aan Zee. We spent the whole afternoon at beachclub Strandhuys Katwijk. We’ve been here before and love it. I had a fish trio bun for lunch and Paul the satay. A little later I had a strawberry cake and Paul butter cake.
On the way home we took with us the Indonesian rice table from Miss Shu, so that was dinner sorted out. We made Yuri really happy with this.
So a week with some simple homecooked meals, take out, a party, first day of school and a beach day.
