Only 3 days left ‘til Christmas. Hurry, people, the clock is ticking!
Nah, seriously; Christmas isn’t such a big deal in the Netherlands, not the way it is in the US though. It’s mainly a laid back, two-day-lasting banquet of epic proportions of deliciousness here. With lots of booze. I’ll hide the scale. Oh wait, I don’t have a scale.
In case you need some last-minute culinary holiday inspiration, here are a few random suggestions.
Let me start by saying there are some very good recipe ideas in my last Thanksgiving Suggestions posting. You can look there for a collection of bread, side dishes, salads, soups, snacks, sauces and other ideas as well.
