Happy 2023, everyone!
Marco and I made oliebollen a few days ago. It’s a donut-like snack that you fry in oil and then cover in powdered sugar.
Of course, purists would say that donuts took their inspiration from oliebollen, not the other way around.
I also purchased some apple beignets from the oliebollen stand at the Grote Markt yesterday. New Year’s Eve is the busiest time of the season for oliebollen stands; this particular one opens at 06:00 on New Year’s Eve.
Here is a look at some photos of the New Year Eve’s fireworks above The Hague, from regio15.nl (article in Dutch).
