This week's Tuesday Tales: Daily Food of a Consultant comes from Holland...
Wait, no not really Holland...see for yourself:
So, now that we know we are in the Netherlands, here is the food I had this week:
Monday started out with a specialty, as I would name it, from the Netherlands: The "Kroketjes." Somebody wanted to know what is special to eat here in the Netherlands - so I was searching constantly for specials :).
A Kroket can be found on every corner in the Netherlands it is basically some meet or vegetable filling surrounded by coating made of bread or something with a similar consistancy. Mostly fried, but sometimes backed, a usual in-between snack which was first described in a recipe in 1691 by the French kind Louis XIV.
Beside the Kroket I had also some salmon with vegetables on monday which was very enjoyable.
Tuesday gave me a club sandwich with delicious bacon on it and chips.
On Wednesday, the Kroket returned but in company with some salad and a vegetable soup. Most of my Dutch collegues eat sandwiches 24 hours a day (at least sometimes it feels like ;) and look at me confused If I request some "real" food for lunch.
On Thursday I got noodles with prawns which where edible but a little oily for my taste. Friday while I did home office I had some leftover potato soup and sausages. Due to my sickness on the weekend she cooked every meal for me so I got waffels for breakfast and an awesome recipe on Saturday which you will soon find in our blog.
Sunday was noodle day with a new kind of noodle we never tried before. It was basically a Spaghetti with a hole in the middle but I do not recommend it. Eating is only possible if one cuts it several times, otherwise these things start having their own will :).
