...so back in may, i had a work trip to amsterdam...first time there and i was on my own....once the meeting was done i took the train into amsterdam city (btw-so easy to navigate the trains there!)....i stumbled upon these while exploring the city....
....belgian waffles or "wafels" topped with all sorts of sugary goodness....!...AND they ask you if you want them warmed....i had the strawberry and chocolate one warmed and it was unbelievably messy and delicious!
so needless to say i had to try it out once i got home....but these are just plan old waffles dipped in melted chocolate....then raided all the sprinkles i have stored up....
....i also found these neat sprinkles in the city too.....once i got home and opened them i found out they were anise flavored (kinda like tiny little good n' plenty's!)....
....the amsterdam belgian waffles were far better....but these were fun too and a nice treat to bring into the office!
....oh and what dad wouldn't want some sugary waffles for father's day?! Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there....
...since i was on my own in amsterdam i did a lot of instagram'ing....here are a few of them
|bitterballen (dutch meatballs) and wieckse beer for dinner|
|loved the meeting snacks (yes - cupcakes topped with maracons!)|
|in line at the Anne Frank House and Museum|
|people watchin' the red light district|
|stumbled upon a fun carnival|
|bicycling is the norm in amsterdam|
|this is how a mall rolls in amsterdam city!|
|Dutch roze koeks "pink cakes" common there--kinda like pound cake with layer of fondant|
ps. hope you like the new blog face--it's still a WIP and i want to add a menu bar, but thanks to Something Swanky's great tutorials....i was able to do some stuff on my own....it took forevs but you do get a nice sense of accomplishment :)
