Happy 1 Year Anniversary

Although its been 1 year, it feels like just 2 months.  We started the day with Gordon Ramsay styled scrambled egg with bacons and toast and then visite Castle van Gasbeek. The castle was small and cute although overpriced (8 euros per person!).  And we ended the day with a scrumptious dinner Spaansdak.    This is literally THE fanciest restaurant I have ever been to.  As it was a Saturday, they did not serve the season specialty but the standard menus.  We ordered one seafood and one meat menu.  A beautiful day. Only, I missed everyone at home.

The “appetizer” that comes with every meal – its not part of the menu, its part of eating!

Tom’s first course: pork with apple fritter and foam, and pomegranate and walnut on a bed of sausage
Ooh that pork was cooked to JUST the right degree

And then we ordered tea and coffee and it came with all these!
Those pecan biscuits were soooo goood.
And the little white things looked so sweeet and Tom told me to just pop the whole thing into my mouth….
