You mention particularly the sweets we eat around the 5th of December, Sinterklaas (St. Nickolaus). I like boterletter, pepernoten and oliebollen too. I don't like haring that much. Well you probably also know stroopwafels then. Yummie!!!

And poffertjes? I find it quite a job to make poffertjes myself but if I am somewhere where they sell them I ALWAYS buy some! You can wake me up for that in the middle of the night

I have had more reactions on the chocolate saying and it is actually from a RUBBER STAMP (I own of course) *lol* I love chocolate but I am a little bit oversensitive for it also, so no big amounts of chocolate for me.

My throat is already much better, thank you. I am working again.

Hmmmmmm. Can't recall those foods. You'll have to refresh my memory on what they are.

One of my favorite memories when we were in Zaandtford (can't remember the correct spelling) was when we were in a cafe having a koffie and all of the sudden Sinterklass walks in with a Schwarte Pete and comes to talk to my sons. Joseph (we call him Josje!) was only 2 years old and was scared to death of the Schwarte Pete and Sinterklass was speaking to Christopher in Dutch, and poor Chris didn't understand a word. Luckily my huband's cousin Stefa was with us and she translated. Pete gave the boys HANDFULLS of pepernoten from his sack. The boys love them. Chris always wanted Potat freit (I just know that spelling is wrong!) whenever we were out shopping. He just loved the mayonaise sauce served with it. To this day, he eats his french fries with mayonaise not ketchup! He says he misses the Dutch licorice as well. My husband's Oma used to send them licorice pipes and cats!

Well all this talk about food is making me hungry!!

It is probably Zandvoort
was when we were in a cafe having a koffie good spelled! and all of the sudden Sinterklass walks in with a Schwarte Pete Zwarte Piet (=Black Pete) and comes to talk to my sons. Joseph (we call him Josje! That's a Dutch name!) was only 2 years old and was scared to death Lots of Dutch kids would have been scared to death too. of the Schwarte Pete and Sinterklass was speaking to Christopher in Dutch, and poor Chris didn't understand a word. Luckily my huband's cousin Stefa was with us and she translated. Pete gave the boys HANDFULLS of pepernoten from his sack. The boys love them. Chris always wanted Potat freit (I just know that spelling is wrong!) It is patat friet. But actually this is double because patat is friet also. I don't know why they say it that way. It is just the way it is. whenever we were out shopping. He just loved the mayonaise sauce served with it. To this day, he eats his french fries with mayonaise not ketchup! Funny!!!! He says he misses the Dutch licorice as well. My husband's Oma used to send them licorice pipes and cats! ?????????????? I know about katjesdrop but the pipes I don't know.

Well all this talk about food is making me hungry!!
