Today has been the pinnacle of our Dutch-iness! Nancy and I went for a hike this morning while Dad finished at the conference and then our cousins, the Vandenberghs, who live in Chandler, came up for poffertjes and brunch. We ate poffertjes, little pancakes about the size of a half-dollar, with butter, jam, powdered sugar, and keukenstroop (super sweet Dutch syrup). We had marzipan candies, bread with hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles), ginger cake, almond cookies, and more! I am definitely feeling the food coma! I know have a pantry full of more delicious Dutch treats to keep me fat for the next few months! (Or days, depending on my self-control or lack thereof...) Now we are all relaxing on this beautiful Sunday afternoon and napping off the food. What a fun weekend!
