Hagelslag for #BrunchWeek #sponsor


So, remember I'm doing things a little bit differently for #BrunchWeek this year?? Click to read about it: here. The gist - I'm sharing some foods from around the world that people eat for breakfast...and it differs greatly from the American regimen of eggs and bacon or pancakes. Today we're heading to the Netherlands our virtual #BrunchWeek tabletop travel.

Now, I lived in the Netherlands for three years when I was a kid and don't remember once eating this for breakfast. Not. One. Single. Time. But, then again, my mom was mean; she's a sweet Nonna, though. But eating bread with chocolate sprinkles wouldn't have been too high on her list of things to allow.

I'm sharing this sweet breakfast treat with you all. In the Netherlands, sprinkles are called hagelslag which translates to 'hailstorm'. Hagelslag comes in a variety of flavors, shapes, and sizes, and are most commonly eaten atop of buttered bread. I had fully intended to make homemade bread for this post, but the week got away from me.



Ingredients
  • bread, toasted or not (it depends on your preference)
  • butter, at room temperature
  • chocolate for shaving (I used Pacari's Piura Quemazon Raw Organic 70%*)

Procedure
Toast your bread - or not. Butter it. Shave chocolate over the top; I used a mandolin slicer. That's it. Does this even count as a recipe??

  1. Haha - love Wendy's comment. :D I agree - it counts as a recipe - you have shared with us a food that most of us have probably never heard of, and it sounds like something everyone should get to enjoy for breakfast at least once! :)

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
