I spend an afternoon in Amsterdam yesterday. I do that sometimes in a school holiday, just for fun and to discover the city.
When you walk to Leiden railway station you first see the bike "parking".
And this is Amsterdam Central station:
Just a small street. The houses are so old that they are askew. (because they were built on sometimes even wooden pilings in the past)
Did you know some (mainly American, sorry
) tourists think Amsterdam is not real, but more like an attraction parc for tourists? Just because there are so many beautiful houses and canals.
And I found a very nice little quilt shop where I bought these cute fat quarters of fabric for PFD ...(M, hope you like!)
This morning we made apfelstrudel. As my SO doesn't like raisins I replaced them with cranberries, the filling smelled so good! We started with a small surface of dough...
And with the help of a youtube video (I never made strudel before) made it into a big transparant sheet of dough. Here the filling is on it.
After I rolled it up and put it in the oven the big disaster happened....
My son had to go to the potty 5 times and I had to help him each time. And I forgot the strudel that I in top of the oven for the last 5 minutes. The baking paper caught flame and I could rush to stop it just in time. Result: a black strudel.
(it looked too terrible to take a photo)
So, the good news is that we still have about 4 kilos of apples left, so I can try again soon
