Today’s dinner was a very lovely courgette curry which I stole from Albert Heijn recipe section. We’re trying to eat less meat this week, and I think this recipe different hit the mark:
And I now realize my American readers might be slightly confused: courgette is zucchini. Courgette is more often used in French and British English, while zucchini is used in American English. But since I didn’t really cook with zucchini when I lived in the States, it will forever be courgette for me.
The beer… ah, yes, the beer. That is a gift from a coworker. It’s a beer from a brewery here in The Hague. Eiber is another word for stork, which is also featured in The Hague’s crest of arms. This beer was brewed in honor of the beer makers’ daughter, born in March. See a photo of her at indebuurt.nl. And it is tasty! Marco and I were thrilled with this gift.
In other news:
- Sinking Dutchman: world’s largest historical sailing fleet threatened by Covid-19 from theguardian.com. I hadn’t realized that there were so many “historic” ships sailing within the Netherlands waters for educational and tourism purposes.
- Opps! Tram 19 derailed near the beginning of the route (but with no passengers on board), from regio15.nl. The issue was with the switch which determines whether the tram goes left or right.
