Yesterday in Holland they celebrated Sinterklaas.
My friend Lucy made the traditional Sinterklaas cookies: pepernoten, gevulde speculaas and even banketstaaf without sugar for me...... Everything was delicious!
And there was a parcel from Holland for me. Before I can tell you what was in the parcel I have to tell you about the HEMA. This s a famous Dutch shop, they especially sell non food things but..... they also sell some food . Their smoked sausage and their tompouce are FAMOUS. While shopping, there is always the flavour of the smoked sausage..... When I am in Holland I immediately go to the Hema, I drink my coffee there and love to look their publicity.
And............ in my parcel from Sinterklaas was a crochet kit to make my own smoked sausage and tompouce !
Thank you Sinterklaas for this very cute and original present.
