Dessert (Or: Dutch oliebollen)

We’re under a month until we land in the Netherlands! Oliebollen is one of the Dutch desserts that I am looking forward to. Here’s a picture Marco took last week:

Oliebollen is the precursor to doughnuts and are traditionally eaten on New Year’s Eve in the Netherlands (although they are sold a bit earlier in the year as well). They are really good with powdered sugar (poedersuiker).

I am enjoying this vacation — nice and relaxed so far. I spent most of the morning sorting books into two piles in my old bedroom – keep and donate. Thankfully the keep pile was much, much smaller than the donate pile! 🙂
