Mornings (Or: Breakfast at Lebkov)

Lebkov in The Hague is one of my favorite places to drink a coffee (an americano!) while studying or reading a novel. The latest visit saw me enjoying an americano with a large croissant. Yum!

Pim café in The Hague (Or: Over on Wagenstraat)

For Valentine’s day, Marco and I visited Pim, a café on Wagenstraat. They have a “breakfast for 2” on their menu which I thought might be interesting to try out. While they have another café on Prins Hendrikstraat, the one on Wagenstraat has only been open since September.

The ambiance was pretty nice, beginning with the flowers on the table:

There was also a foosball table hanging on the wall:

And here is a look at the breakfast for two. Two large croissants, four pieces of brown bread, four pieces of white bread, orange juice, coffee, hummus and a few vegetables (zucchini, eggplant, paprika).

As you can see below, there was also cheese, ham and two cooked eggs. I am not a fan of eggs in general, so luckily Marco was willing to eat mine as well.

But definitely a nice breakfast – very filling!

Wafflemania (Or: Valentine’s Day 2015)

Marco surprised me with another Valentine’s Day themed breakfast. It is becoming a sort of tradition. 😉

This time he used the waffle maker!

Whar can I say, I am a sucker for his chocolate waffles (which is just the normal mix with cocoa powder thrown in). Another was dusted with sugar, and the last was “regular”. It also came with coffee (which we usually drink after dinner so that is a lovely novelty) and a large glass of milk. Yum.

And then halfway through I decided to get creative:

Another use for the candy hearts! 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day, all.

Saturday morning experiments (Or: Waffle making

Yesterday morning Marco and I tried out the waffle maker we got for Christmas from Marco’s dad and his wife. It is a Bestron “Sweet Dreams” waffle maker. It was an experiment – the dough might have needed to be slightly runnier in future attempts.

Marco modeling an almost finished set of waffles. This dough was sweet, however we also received a receipe from that described how to make a more savory version with ham and cheese. We also received a sample while at their house – it was delish (lekker)!

Waffels!

Some attempts above. It can be difficult getting the amount of dough you need to add just right – too little and it is not completely filled in, but too much and it runs over the sides. Messy business that!

I suspect our next attempt will be something savory. Yum.

Valentine’s Day (Or: PB&J sandwiches)

So Marco surprised me this morning with a Valentine’s Day themed peanut butter and jelly sandwich in bed.

Definitely a surprise since he came into the bedroom at the normal time he comes in (to give me a hug or two and then go to work). But as he has to work pretty late tonight, he surprised me by saying he wasn’t going into work until 10am. Yay.

It’s also the first time I had a pb&j sandwich since I left New York… I used to have them every work day for a few years, since they were easy and quick to make. Of course, I varied the other stuff I had. So yeah… it’s been a long time since pb&j!
