That’s the way the cookie crumbles

Sheer luck!In Holland, when you go to the Market place you have to buy this: Cookie Crumbs. It’s the left over from making Stroopwafels (Syrup Waffles). But in my case, that is not enough.

I also got myself a large Smoked Eel, a huge Cheese and those lovely Syrup Waffles they make for you while you watch.

Then I had two raw Herrings with chopped onions as it is the start of the season. So I went home a little poorer as I went but with a richly filled bag of things to eat this weekend.

And as you may have guessed by now the missus is away for a weekend. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to bring back home all that lovely fish.

Have a great weekend my friends!

Dit ben ik, Leendert. Ik ben een beetje ouderwets en houd van dingen die geweest zijn, bijvoorbeeld oude Engelse series op TV zoals All Creatures Great And Small, mechanische horloges, bifocale brillen en oude langspeelplaten. Ik houd niet van moderne dingen en werk regelmatig aan een ouderwetse modelspoorbaan. Ik volg Jezus en schrijf mijn gedichten soms ook over Hem maar ik schrijf ook verhalen over het leven. Excentriek. Op feestjes ben ik vaak te vinden in de keuken.


This is me, Leendert. I am a little bit old-fashioned and I love things from the past, old series like All Creatures Great And Small, mechanical wristwatches, bi-focal glasses and vinyl records for example. I am not keen on modern things and I often work on this old style model railway. I follow Jesus and sometimes write a poem about Him but I also write about my life. Eccentric. You can often find me in the kitchen at parties.
