Voorburg, December 28, 2015—
TOM MADE DINNER, and Tom's an enthusiast of all things Italian. On the other hand he's Dutch, with a distinctly Dutch approach to cooking Italian. So this puttanesca sauce, for example, contained butter. The cheese was Parmigiana, not Amsterdammer, but the sauce contained butter. Olive oil too, of course, but… butter.

It also involved olives and capers, and a enough chile pepper to notice. It was very good; likewise the hamburger steak on the side, and the green beans. And the cocolate and vanilla vla, poured out of supermarket cartons, that made our dessert. I do like vla.
