We started the week with a homecooked meal from the cookbook Van Piepers to Pasta from Blue Band. I prepared salmon steak with green beans and potatoes. It was Halloween but trick-or-treatin’ isn’t something they do in the Netherlands.

A day late but Paul hollowed out a pumpkin and made a jack-o-lantern from it. Always fun! Paul made spaghetti with chicken Bolognese sauce from the cookbook Het Complete Pastaboek for dinner. It tasted good!

I had to have some things from the stores downtown and got lunch on the go from KEEK, a cheese bun. It was delicious with cheese and spinach in it. Got two new cookbooks in the mail on this day. Namely De Smaakmakers van Portugal from Aviko and the magazine Zelf brood bakken from Landleven. Both with really delicious recipes inside. Dinner was a pizza bbq vega chicken.

Paul and I were both not in the mood to cook dinner this day. So Paul made snacks, fries and kaassouflés for us in the deep-fryer.

On Friday we went for dinner at Fridays with a friend. We had mozzarella sticks, chicken wings, quesadillas and sliders as a starter. For a main the signature ribs, mac and cheese, chicken tenders and a bacon-cheeseburger. Afterwards we went to Starbucks and had a stroopwafel latte, chai latte, strawberries & cream frappuccino and a praline cookie hot chocolate.


We had a baking day with my nieces at my parents’ home. A baking day with the daughters of my sister and Yuri we do one to two times a year. I choose some recipes together with Yuri and my nieces, usually 2 to 3 and we prepare them together. Although it’s more and more that I give them some tips and pointers and they do it mostly on their own.

The baking day started with lunch at my parents. My mom had whole wheat and white buns on the table with cold cuts, cheese and spreads. After we made devils donuts from the cookbook Donuts and bananabread honey & chocolate from the cookbook Bananabread. For dinner my mom had prepared pancakes with cinnamon and a chicken-curry casserole.  


We went to my parents-in-law and had dinner together. My mother-in-law prepared pasta with a delicious curry, chicken and beans sauce. Dessert afterwards were oliebollen, a Dutch New Year’s Eve treat.

So that was a week with delicious homecooked meals, one dinner out and a bit of baking.
