I’m traveling with three co-workers. We left the U.S. on Saturday night and arrived in Amsterdam today; our flights were uneventful (just the way you want them to be!). We went to our hotel, checked in, showered and slept for a little bit and then ventured out in the city. I’m not exactly sure where we were other than that we were in the vicinity of the Anne Frank House. Here are some pictures of our first “taste” of Amsterdam.
We stopped in a small restaurant to grab a bite to eat. We decided to try a traditional Dutch meal called “Dutch Stamppot”. It’s the comfort food of the Netherlands. We sampled three different versions. One was mashed potatoes mixed with kale and topped with sausage, the second one was mashed potatoes mixed with carrots and topped with roast beef, the third was mashed potatoes mixed with sauerkraut and topped with bacon bits. I’m glad we tried it!
Getting ready for bed now as tomorrow is a workday.
I do have some stitching to show. Had time to fill in the tulips at the airport yesterday. This is from Plum Street Samplers, an exclusive design for the Soul Sisters club through the Country Sampler.
