I love desserts but I try not to eat anything after dinner. Until I got pregnant… My Sweet Tooth took over again so after dinner I always had to take a small dessert. In the beginning I ate lots of those small mochi ice creams, a small scoop of ice cream in a mochi sheet. So delicious! And just enough to satisfy my sweet cravings!
But then I discovered

You will probably not believe me but I had my first driving lesson when I was 28 years old; and 6 months and 26 lessons later I got my driver’s license. In the Netherlands this is quite fast, but when I tell this to my American friends they are all surprised. In America (or at least in LA), you need 6 hours of driving lessons to do the driving test. In the Netherlands I “only” had to spent €1.500 on my driving lessons, written test and behind the wheel test. In LA the costs are much lower, we only had to pay $33 for our Californian license. That includes 3 times a written test (if you fail, you can do it 2x on the same day to succeed) and 1 behind the wheel test. If you fail the second behind the wheel test costs… hold on… $6!
If you are over 18 then you basically don’t need driving lessons to complete the tests and from 16 you can drive with a temporary license (then you’re under the supervision of your parents). If that’s the case, you need 30 hours of theory lessons and you have to spent 6 hours of driving lessons behind the wheel.
This Asian-style coleslaw salad is one of my favorites at this moment. I eat this at least once a week for lunch.
Just mix some
coleswla coleslaw with romaine and add bean sprouts for an Asian touch.
But the best of this
coleswla coleslaw (argh! I keep typing it wrong!) salad is the dressing.
Moving to another country is not the easiest thing to do. You have to leave everyone and everything you know behind to start a new life. So now in LA we have to discover everything: where do I need to go for some good pizza? How do I know which groceries can be ‘trusted’? Where do I have to buy underwear (or better: what will be my favorite underwear)? Who can I trust to cut my hair? Oh and I can go on with this list for -let’s say- forever!
One of the things I have to miss in Amsterdam is good dim sum. I regularly went to a really good dim sum place where the weekends were packed with Chinese customers. So then you know it’s good! 😉
