Tasty tosti

Loolaan, Apeldoorn, Deember 24, 2015 —

ANOTHER EASY DAY . Our breakfast, here at our friend's table, is Dutch of course: coffee and coffiemelk, rusks, ham, delicious aged Gouda, an egg, bread, but I go fairly easy.

Lunch in a delightful place in neighboring Zwolle, where I had a delicious "Tosti Villa": pastrami, kaas, zontomaten on dark bread, with a nice little green salad on the side.

After a couple of hours in the curious museum next door we walked through the busy, prosperous, beautiful medieval center of town to a remarkable bookstore installed in a quite large decommissioned church where tea and appelkoek was irresistible.

Back in Apeldoorn, dinner is once again modest: steamed potatoes, mashed on the plste and treated to rich leftover beef carbonnade, green beans, salad.
