Tamara asked if I could post the recipe for the rösti in my last post. Well that’s easy: you go to the grocery store, frozen food section, buy a bag of rösti, bake it -> done! In other words: this is one of the few products I buy that I don’t make myself.
Shelly mentioned Hans Brinker when she read about the dykes bursting (which never happened after all). Alarm bells went off because I knew the name and it had something to do with dykes. So I checked my friend Wikipedia. Turns out Hans Brinker never existed but was made up for a children’s novel. Funny thing about it is that there are 3 statues in Holland of the imaginary Hans Brinker. I read they are put there especially for the American tourists. Shelly thanks for the mention, I learned something new and that’s always a good thing.
Friday night we had a New Year’s reception from R.’s work. We didn’t really wanted to go because usually parties from his work aren’t very fun. But have to say, Friday night wasn’t that bad. We went bowling for an hour and after that we had drinks. We said before we went, we would go home early but came home after midnight.
Saturday was an easy day at home. I didn’t feel all that well and didn’t want to go anywhere.
Sunday afternoon we went to my friend T. She had her birthday last Friday but celebrated it yesterday. It wasn’t a big party, just coffee and cake. We stayed for about 2 hours. My gift to her is (as you may remember from last year) an invitation to dinner at my house. We’re going to do that first weekend of February.
And our Bella thinks big! Why pick a little stick if you can have the big one. She made me laugh when she picked this one up, she even ran with it, that was even more funny.
The first week of this year didn’t go completely as I had in mind when the new year started. Yes I did eat better than the last 2 weeks of 2011 but I could have done better. Yes I did workout a few times, but I could have done better. What’s done is done, all I can do now is start over, starting today, with healthy eating, no skipping of workouts. No excuses Fran, just do it!
