For the past six weeks P was working a lot. Or was it seven weeks? I completely lost all sense of time, I have no idea… He worked regularly until around midnight, and even on weekends he had to be at the office.
Sporadically he came home around dinner time if he was lucky, and a few times they gave the whole crew a day off on Sunday to take a break or because they were expecting a tough week. Just a few more of those days to go for him… the deadline is today. Or next Monday, they’re not quite sure yet 😉
P and I got totally confused by the days. Today is Friday or Wednesday? That’s what happens if you work over the weekend.
Fortunately it is a fun project he’s working on. That’s making up a bit for the fact that he worked 185 hours in the past two weeks Yep, 185 hours, that’s not
Summer is still in full swing in California and to be honest I don’t want to think of pumpkins, while the whole internet already filled with autumn food such as pumpkins, cranberries, apples and oh, pumpkins!
I really don’t want to think about it just yet 😉 I embrace summer squash a bit as long as they are here in the store, so yay for zucchini! Last week we ate a whopping

One of my first food truck experiences after moving to LA last year was the Currywurst Truck. There is one thing you might not know about me and it’s that I grew up near the German border at the east side of the Netherlands.
While growing up we often went to Germany for shopping on Dutch holidays. Ever since then I love German food: pretzels, german bread and currywurst. And while studying me and my best friend drove to Germany for grocery shopping at least once a month. It was just a 15-minute drive and I would stock up on alcohol because
Can somebody please explain why the Americans celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day, which is an Irish holiday?
My sister is visiting and I explained it to her as ‘the Americans just like holidays, so they adapted this Irish holiday’.
But please tell me if I’m correct and besides that… Whát are we actually celebrating? I know about the green color, the clovers and those leprechauns. But why? And how?

‘They’ are promising us rain later this week. And not the rain we had a few times now since our arrival in Los Angeles, no we are talking about the Dutch kind of rain. One to two inches (2.5 – 5 cm), that’s a lot! Especially for LA 😉
I have the feeling the whole city is preparing to cope with the rain and I’m also planning ahead. I just don’t want to leave the house if it isn’t necessary. It’s not because I’m made of sugar, come on, I grew up in the Netherlands where it always rains a lot!
One of the best things of living in LA are the food trucks! My love for food trucks started almost two years, when we were in LA for vacation. P had to work that day and he took the car so I walked to the beach to sit there and read a book. On my way back I noticed I was a little bit hungry and right at that moment there it was: a food truck!
I stood in line and ordered a quesadilla. But then the lady in the truck asked me what kind of quesadilla I wanted. I panicked, looked at the menu but it was all in spanish so I ordered
I’m always a big fan of homemade food so when my brother sent me a picture of the dinner he was cooking at that moment I made a promise.
A promise to do a post on Chicken Madras curry. So here it is.
This curry is a populair dish in the Netherlands and it all comes from a package. These kinds of packages all go under the name ‘Wereldgerechten’ which means World Dishes. There is Italian lasagna, Mexican burrito’s, Indian chicken tandoori, Greek kofta, Morrocan chicken tajine, Spanish paella, Japanese teriyaki and so on.
And I have to admit, I also used to prepare those Wereldgerechten quite often.
