French Toast, Pancakes, Grits, Waffles, Hashbrowns, Corned Beef Hash, - all are major differences from the "English Breakfast". We never eat tomatoes and mushrooms would only be used as part of a massive omelet. Good stuff!

Interesting to read that all the Americans here think they really have a distinguished and respectable food culture...

Must be haute cuisine... Probably the reason why you don't get it outside the US of A...

We are going back to Holland in December, so can't wait to have 'moeder's erwtensoep'. Other winterdishes that are a must eat there are 'Andijvie stampot met spekkies', 'Stamp van boerenkool met worst' (alleen bij de HEMA! :D ) and of course the real Sauerkraut, the Dutch one: Zuurkool met spek... 8)

Pretty sure you also miss Holland for its extremely haute cuisine... :D

Oh yes, made a quick lifting to match the current mood about Halloween... I will (hopefully) go back to my original state later this week.

For sure I will enjouy next week!

Honestly, for haute cuisine we always went to Belgium or Germany - but for simple and excellent tasting 'zuftiges essen' you can't go wrong with Stampot and spekkies (that's the word I was looking for, not ham on the Pumpernickelbrood) or erwtensoep . . . =D>

Magic, just sitting outside or inside by the window on the Groote Markt in Haarlem or the Besstenmarkt in Leiden . . .

ImageCafe Brinkman on the "grote markt' in Haarlem, great place in summer with a beer on the 'terras', or in winter behind the window, enjoying some nice 'snert' or a beer or two... :P

After you shopped for your groceries and flowers for the misses at the stalls at the weekly markt on the Saturday morning...
