It was Christmas day, and we had brunch at my parents-in-law. My father-in-law has his Birthday on the 25th. We then drove to Paul’s sister in Germany, a 4-hour drive. My sister-in-law baked a stack of pancakes for dinner. Paul and I celebrated 25 years together, so I bought a love sign.

Second day of Christmas we had a late breakfast with delicious buns and bread. Then we just talked all day, catching up. The kids played together. My parents-in-law arrived late in the afternoon, then we celebrated Christmas together with presents and hamburgers for dinner.

At the end of the morning we drove home again after having breakfast together. On the way home we had lunch and dinner at roadside restaurants. Lunch was a rösti box (sort of hash browns) for Yuri and me, and a curry wurst mit pommes (sausage with fries) for Paul. We had dinner at Hajé Nunspeet. Yuri had a schnitzel with fries, I had the nasi plate (fried rice) and Paul the chicken satay.

Yuri still had school break, but Paul went to the office again. We had mushroom ragout with puff pastry cups. Always delicious and good comfort food.

As lunch I had crab dip sauce with tortilla chips. It was delicious. Dinner consisted of two separate dishes, a sweet potato burger with jalapeno sauce, grip ‘n dip with 3 dips. Both from Aviko, one from a new cookbook and the other from the Aviko magazine. Grip ‘n dip are fries with a sort of ditch in them, which makes it that you can scoop dip with the fries. I made the cake bottom for a boerenjongenstaart.

We went to my parents-in-law to do our yearly tradition of preparing oliebollen. Paul, his father and Yuri fry the oliebollen in oil. Paul’s mother prepares the batter and I peel and decore the apples. Afterwards we went to McDonald’s on our way home.

I finished the boerenjongenstaart and then we drove to Uden. My mom’s Birthday is on the last day of the year. So we stayed there until the early evening and had lunch and dinner together. Then we went to Fletcher Hotel De Vrije Teugel in Uden to celebrate New Year’s Eve, which we did with the 3 of us.

So that was our week 52 2023, the last week of the year 2023.
